After recording their second studio album Give 'Em Enough Rope (1978), the band separated from their manager Bernard Rhodes. This separation meant that the group had to leave their rehearsal studio in Camden Town and find another location to compose their music. Drawing inspiration from rockabilly, ska, reggae and jazz, the band began work on the album during the summer of 1979. Excerpt: London Calling is the third studio album by the English punk rock band The Clash. It was released in the United Kingdom on 14 December 1979 through CBS Records, and in the United States in January 1980 through Epic Records. The album represented a change in The Clash's musical style, featuring elements of ska, funk, pop, soul, jazz, rockabilly, and reggae, more prominently than in their previous two albums.
Although Give ‘Em Enough Rope doesn’t pack quite the punch or purpose of the band’s debut, Safe European Home, Tommy Gun, and Drug-Stabbing Time show a growing synergy in the songwriting partnership between Joe Strummer and Mick Jones. The rollicking R&B of Julie’s Been Working For the Drug Squad presages the stylistic breakthrough of London Calling, while English Civil War offers the band’s punk audience one last furious anthem. Produced by Blue Oyster Cult guru Sandy Pearlman, the Clash’s sophomore album was a conscious attempt to give the band a more commercial sound. Although Give ‘Em Enough Rope doesn’t pack quite the punch or purpose of the band’s debut, Safe European Home, Tommy Gun, and Drug-Stabbing Time show a growing synergy in the songwriting partnership between Joe Strummer and Mick Jones.

With "Give 'Em Enough Rope," The Clash retain their punk roots, but start to draw in more influence from more melodic genres. They take their style in a more positive and productive direction, and the album turns out to be one of the band's best. In true Clash fashion, the album delivers the goods, from start to finish, with not one bad track to spare. Overall Impression - 10 On the whole, "Give 'Em Enough Rope" is a worthy addition to your music collection, especially if you're into most punk or classic rock music. The album does a great job at serving up an interesting blend of punk and rock, along with a classic and unique Clash edge to it. Hardly any album in the history of music can compare to "London Calling," but 1978's "Give 'Em Enough Rope" undoubtedly holds a deserving second place in all of The Clash's albums.
For their second album, the Clash worked with the American hard rock producer Sandy Pearlman, best-known for his work with Blue Öyster Cult and the Dictators. The teaming was quite controversial within the punk community, and the sound of Give 'Em Enough Rope is considerably cleaner, yet the more direct sound hardly tamed the Clash. While the record doesn't burn with the same intense, amateurish energy of The Clash, it does have a big, forceful sound that is nearly as powerful. What keeps Give 'Em Enough Rope from being a classic is its slightly inconsistent material.
