London Calling

London Calling

by The Clash


Elvis Presley

This is the debut Elvis album that The Clash copied in style for the release of London Calling.

Photographer Pennie Smith hit the nail on the head with this photo--though she didn't even think the photo was fit for an album cover--and here it is in hi-res glory.

"London Calling"

The single cover art continues the '50s theme of the cover.

The Clash

The Clash isn't really interesting photo-wise. In fact, all of their band pictures look pretty much exactly like this one.

The iconic album cover, which is actually a visual reference to Elvis' debut album cover.
