London Calling


One of the many presents that I got from my work colleagues at my retiral lunch on Friday was this rather splendid display picture of London Calling by the Clash.
Not many of them are musically minded and Mrs CC put them in the right direction when they called her to enquire about  some of my favourite music.

It means that I finally now have London Calling on CD as well as vinyl!
Needless to say it has also taken pride of place on the wall in the Muso room

This occasion clealy calls for a track from each of the four sides.


  1. Excellent. Are you bored yet?

  2. Hats off to your former colleagues (and to Mrs CC). A splendid gift.

  3. A quality present there, CC, and of course some excellent music. Thankfully, had the added effect of removing the bad taste left by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils... :-)

  4. That must look really nice in the music room, CC. I see George hasn’t retired. Still on top of his game, and he even took the high road when he could have gone in with a jab about the Clash. Impressive.

    1. Thank you Brian. I have this album, by the way.

    2. For some reason I thought you loathed the Clash. My mistake. Anyway, that was a good laugh above.

  5. That's a great gift CC. They know you well.

    Enjoy your new chapter - You will be busier, but in a good way.

  6. That's a 'thoughtful' present certainly beats a gold watch all ends up!
