    Indeed. Sometimes less is more.

    No filler on Sandinista in my opinion. And it's my favorite Clash album.

    I do listen to almost all of the tracks on Sandinista!...but I can’t listen to the backwards track, so I feel OK describing it as “filler”.

    Yes, the extra tracks on the cd totally mess up the flow,

    Just the other day I was listening to Tommy and feeling somewhat annoyed at some of what I would have considered 'filler' at first, when I wondered what a single-disc version would sound like. I quickly understood it needs to be two-discs; there is no way else to do Tommy.

    Arguably the most cluttered with filler double album of all time.:laugh:

    I enjoy Sandinista, but I am the first to admit it contains lots of filler.

    Must have been quite some thing to have bought it new back in the day, take it home to unwrap and then be presented with this gorgeous package containing 2 albums and 30 new songs.

    Electric Ladyland- If you appreciate the 2 short soundscapes

    Exile on main street- If you have no trouble with Casino Boogie, Turd On The Run or Sweet Black Angel

    Eat A Peach - If you enjoy Mountain Jam

    Live at Fillmore East- If you like the band

    The White Album - If you love the band

    Blonde On Blonde - If you like Rainy Day Women & LS Pillbox Hat.

    In other words, these albums contain no filler, provided you ignore this track, and that track, and this other.

    That is, they contain filler.

    for me:

    live albums

    eagles - live

    CSNY - 4 way street - not a wasted note on the whole thing

    CPR - live at the wiltern

    allman brothers - fillmore

    jackson browne - solo acoustic 1 & 2


    crosby*nash - s/t 2004 - even though it is less than 80 minutes and could have been a single album

    the who - tommy

    chicago - II

    The Wall? I'd say there's 3 1/2 sides too much, but that's me.

    Glad that Crosby/Nash is a double. Not keen on long single albums.
  23. Also,
    If you like all songs = no filler.
    If you don't = filler.

    The White Album, Tommy, All Things Must Pass, Exile on Main Street, The Wall, London Calling, all come to mind.

    I really do love this record. It gets overlooked...but it is a real high point for this band.
