We gave it a B+

Like most great bands, The Clash hid lots of not-so-great noodling on the B-sides of singles. This anthology, Super Black Market Clash, is loaded with such stuff. But a few of these leftovers are more than just clumsy science experiments: a harsh rock obituary (”1977”), a graceful outlaw eulogy (”Robber Dub”), and a street-tough stab at a reggae classic (”Pressure Drop”). Sifting through noodling to get to songs this good is worth it.
