The Clash to Release London Calling 30th Anniversary Edition, Sell Album's Original Artwork
This month, the Clash's punk opus, London Calling, will turn 30. And while the album has already received one deluxe reissue - 2004's 25th Anniversary Edition - that isn't stopping the group from releasing another on December 14, when London Calling: 30th Anniversary Legacy Edition will hit the shelves in the UK (no word on if this one is getting a North American release).

Unlike the deluxe version released five years ago, the new edition won't contain the Vanilla Tapes rehearsal sessions. Instead, it will come with a DVD that includes the documentary The Last Testament: The Making of London Calling, plus three music videos and home footage of the band recording the album in London's Wessex Studios. It also comes in a fancy package, including a 20-page booklet and sleeves that replicate the original vinyl.

In related news, Digital Spy reports that original artwork from London Calling will be auctioned off this month. Up for sale are original mock-ups for the LP cover, as well as two signed photos of the band. These will be sold on December 16 at the Bonhams's Knightsbridge sale room in London, England.
