    I was in Tower the other day and noticed some sort of "remastered" sticker on the The Clash's London Calling CD.
    Has it really been fixed? I got this when it first came out on CD, and the CD sounded noticeably worse than the LP. It is one of my favorite albums, and I would re-buy the CD, if it has been legitimately fixed.
    Can anyone comment on the quality of the current London Calling CD?
    Thanks,
    Ted

    The entire Clash back catalogue was remastered back in 1999 or 2000. IMHO, they all sound excellent! I have never heard the original releases, but I highly enjoy the sound of the remasters.

    I haven't heard the original CD, but the remastered CD, to my untrained ears, sounds fine.

    The Clash remasters are a huge improvement over the original CDs.

    I don't post much but I couldn't pass this one up. London Calling was suberbly done. This is easily one of the best rock releases of all time and sounds fantastic especially when compared to the original. I hate having to buy multiple copies of a piece but in this instance it is worth it.

    Regards,

    Jim Clark
