Give ‘Em Enough Rope Demos Remastered [no label, 1CD]

In 1978, The Clash released their second studio album, Give ‘Em Enough Rope, though it was their first album released in the United States. The album marked the first album appearance of drummer Topper Headon, who joined the band shortly after the recording of their self-titld debut album (1977).

Robert Christgau wrote in The Village Voice that the album’s pessimistic mood and a couple of bad songs or moments made it less listenable than the band’s debut record, but concluded that most of the songs were “effective melodically as anything on The Clash, and even the band’s ruminations on the star as culture hero become more resonant as you hear them over and over again. This isn’t among the greatest rock albums ever, but it is among the finest of the year.”

In 1993, Give ‘Em Enough Rope was named the 87th greatest album of all time in NME magazine. Q magazine included the record in their “100 Best Punk Albums” list, and wrote in retrospect that it was “no more punk than Blondie” and “shined of quality”, and “their drumming problems were over with the arrival of jazz-trained [Topper] Headon.” - wikipedia
