THE CLASH: ALL THE ALBUMS, ALL THE SONGS. It’s a “deep dive” into all the music The Clash recorded. Veteran music journalist Martin Popoff dissects each of the band’s 103 tracks, including the circumstances that led to their creation, the recording and writing processes, the historical contexts, and much more. In addition, an introductory essay sets the scene for each album, while sidebar features explore influences on the band, album art, non-LP singles, and the band’s staunch political stance. Also included are in-depth details about each song, such as running time, instruments played, engineers, and studios.

This stunning look back at Pink Floyd’s discography comprises a series of in-depth, frank, and entertaining conversations about all of the band’s studio albums, including their soundtrack efforts and the instrumental/ambient The Endless River. Inside, prolific rock journalist Martin Popoff moderates discussions on each album with rock journalists and musicians who offer insights, opinions, and anecdotes about every release.

Together, the conversations comprise a unique historical overview of the band, covering everything from early albums with the iconic Syd Barrett to the songwriting tandem of Roger Waters and David Gilmour; the impeccable talents of drummer Nick Mason and multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright; those mega tours undertaken in support of the LPs; the monster success of breakthrough LP Dark Side of the Moon; interpersonal conflict; the band following Waters’ 1985 departure; and much more.

Popoff also includes sidebars that provide complete track listings, album personnel, and studios and dates. Every page is illustrated with thoughtfully curated performance and offstage photography, as well as rare memorabilia.
