Notes:
Sandinista! is the fourth studio album by the English band the Clash. It was released on 12 December 1980 as a triple album containing 36 tracks, with 6 songs on each side. Anticipating the "world music" trend of the 1980s, it features funk, reggae, jazz, gospel, rockabilly, folk, dub, rhythm and blues, calypso, disco, and rap. For the first time, the band's traditional songwriting credits of Strummer and Jones were replaced by a generic credit to the Clash, and the band agreed to a decrease in album royalties in order to release the 3-LP at a low price.

The title refers to the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, and its catalogue number, 'FSLN1', refers to the abbreviation of the party's Spanish name, Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional.

Sandinista! was voted best album of the year in the Pazz & Jop critics poll in The Village Voice, and was ranked number 404 on the Rolling Stone list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" in 2003. Slant Magazine listed the album at number 85 on its "Best Albums of the 1980s" list in 2012.

I believe it could be the same of the publication number The Clash - Sandinista!. There's non enough element to be sure these are two different publications.

For what it's worth, I have this pressing, and it came with the insert. I did buy it used though.

This album stands the test of time listening to it almost 40 years later and having bought it at the time of release and not loving it today it's one of my favourite albums of all time up there with the White album and a segway to Big Audio D....

I think people overrate this album because of reputation. I think there was a lot thrown on here without much thought. There is some amazing music but too much chafe, they could have tightened this up and made a much better single or double album. Still obviously worth having if you come across it.
