The Clash – UK “Give ‘Em Enough Rope” Promo Only Deluxe Issue, Poster, Party Invitation
An extremely rare UK deluxe promotional issue of The Clash’s second album, 1978’s “Give ‘Em Enough Rope.” This was given to a writer for Melody Maker, and includes an original telegram inviting him to a November 2, 1978 album launch reception at the Cinema Blue in London, a first press UK “Give ‘Em Enough Rope” LP (with gold promo stamp on the back) in NM/NM condition, a 24″ x 36″ double sided “Give ‘Em Enough Rope” poster, 10 pages of xeroxed song lyrics, a 12 3/8″ X 24 1/2″ “Story of The Clash” fold open poster (with band history written by Joe Strummer) and a silkscreened PVC sleeve. The album and all the contents fold inside the yellow-backed “Story of The Clash” poster, which slides inside the PVC cover, making for an extremely appealing package. This is only the second example we’ve seen, and this one includes the original party invitation/telegram. Everything is in excellent condition; the PVC sleeve is wrinkled a bit (as was the other one we had) and the poster has a few very small edge tears, but overall this is beautiful.
