"The problem with the album was that someone decided that the Clash would benefit from having 'proper' production on their second album," - and that someone was Mick Jones, who by that time had taken over the helm from Joe, and was intent on carving out his own 'rock legend' career. Without Bernie to ground them in reality, Joe had no choice but to succumb to Mick's over-inflated ambitions. When Pearlman was put forward by CBS Mick jumped at the opportunity to be produced by a 'big' american producer. After the down-to-earth production by Mickey Foote this seemed like a breath of fresh air at the time, but proved ultimately to be the completely wrong direction....but then, hindsight is a wonderful thing.
