'If Music Could Talk' was a promo album released by The Clash in 1981, featuring interviews with all four members (Paul, Mick, Joe & Topper), conducted by long-time band associate, Kosmo Vinyl, interspersed with music from the (as then) recently released 'Sandinista' triple album. Until now, the album has never had a full release. Available across 2 LPs and pressed on 180g vinyl, the 2021 Record Store limited edition reproduces the original interview audio, as well as the full-length tracks from the album (using the 2012 audio). The front cover features a photo of Augusto Cesar Sandino - the Nicaraguan anti-imperialist leader and forebearer to the country's Sandinista movement who in turn provided the inspiration for the album - and a Pennie Smith photo on the reverse. Brand new artwork and liner notes come from Kosmo Vinyl. £1 from the retail price of each copy will be donated to War Child.
