Clash (The) - Pearl Harbour '79

MHCP-522 (2004)

US version of The Clash's 1st album (in other words their second US album). Same 15 tracks as the US version - that is: 4 replacements and 1 additional track when compared to the original UK release. This issue replicates the Japanese release from 1979 that included a two track 7" single with "Gates of the West" and "Groovy Times". The giant OBI that completely wraps around the sleeve is the only place the name "Pearl Harbour" appears, which, oddly enough has the non-USA spelling of harbour.

The cover is actually the same layout as the original US LP, not the UK edition, as stated in the packaging description below. What I find interesting is that the pink and yellow OBI differs from the original LP in that it says "CD+" as opposed to "LP+" and is missing a vertical line of text (I don't read Japanese, so I don't actually know what the literal difference is.) Here is what the actual LP OBI looks like:

The US cover is the same than the UK edition but the green tones are darker in the UK one.

On the back cover the tracks listing changes, 2 drumers are included with indications of the songs played by each one. The text size is bigger in the UK edition, and the credits suffer also some minor changes.

Also the order of the songs (when in both albums) has some changes.
