Burning London: The Clash Tribute

Epic EK 69106 CD, released 1999 (U.S.)
Epic 494043 2 CD, released 1999 (Europe, Australia)
Epic ESCA 7322 CD, released 1999 (Japan)
Contains the Afghan Whigs song "Lost in the Supermarket"

The Whigs' treatment of this Clash classic is nothing short of brilliant. They cover "Lost in the Supermarket" in their way, but don't stop there...they also sample the beat from "Train in Vain" and blend the lyrics of that song seamlessly into Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" at the end of the recording. There are actually many, many more versions of this CD than are listed here, some containing (non-Whigs) bonus tracks. The European and Japanese versions both fall into this category. I'm not detailing all of the others. Maybe I will someday.
