Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #176

April 10, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Sandinista! by The Clash.

Three records, totalling up to 36 tracks to really loose yourself. The Clash’s fourth studio album was released in 1980, and showcases the groups diverse visions and tastes, with some funk, jazz, reggae, folk, blues and rap, amongst other genres! The album, sold at a low price for its time, was meant to be accessible to all; this is also a rare chance to listen to all four members of the Clash on lead vocals.
