9. The album represented a change in The Clash's musical style and featured more diverse elements; Ska, Pop, Soul, Rockabilly and Reggae influences were more audible than on their previous albums. The cover is clearly a tribute to Elvis Presley's self titled album sleeve, whereas the album's subject matters vary from unemployment, racial conflict, drug use and the responsibilities of adulthood. Recordings took only a couple of weeks time and most songs were cut in 2 or 3 takes. The album received unanimously positive reviews and was ranked high in quite some All Time Greatest Albums listings (number 8 on Rolling Stone's list, number 4 on Q Magazine's list). London Calling was a top 10 album in the UK, and its title track was a top 20 single. In 2007, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, for being a collection of recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance. Newly remastered by The Clash from original tapes to audiophile quality. 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
