Revolutionary. Political. These two words sum up the The Clash s double-album London Calling. Tracks such as Spanish Bombs, London Calling, and The Guns of Brixton explore the bands familiar themes of working-class rebellion and anarchy, and define the album.

The result is one of the greatest rock & roll albums ever recorded.

Many musicians lived and were musically active during multiple jazz periods, and some of them actually made significant contributions during all of the periods during which they recorded. But few can claim, as Miles Davis could, to have actually helped design the architecture in every case. Bebop, cool, and fusion all have Davis' handprints deep in the cement of their foundations, and this disc documents some of his best work during the second of those periods. In the mid-'50s he started what would be a tumultuous musical relationship with John Coltrane, and what would eventually become one of the greatest combos in jazz history began to coalesce: alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones in addition to Davis and Coltrane.
