Recording and Production edit ]Edit

The album was recorded in 1977 in the United Kingdom under the label of Columbia Records (CBS Records). Simon Humphrey, technical employee of CBS collaborated on the album, which was produced by soundman Mickey Foote, who also arranged the sound at the live shows of The Clash. The album was in the presence defunct CBS Whitfield Street Studio No.. 3 included. [1] The Clash was very varied for a punk album, with clear influences from reggae and early rock 'n' roll .

The album was largely conceived in the eighteenth floor of a London building on Harrow Road, in an apartment that was rented by the grandmother of Mick Jones, who also repeatedly visited a concert by The Clash. [2] The album was recorded in three weekends in CBS Studio 3 in February 1977. After the third of these three sessions, the album was finished, completely recorded and mixed. The master tapes were delivered to CBS in early March, after a total production of only 4000 pounds.
