“The Great Rock N Roll Swindle” by Sex Pistols - album review

TJR says

God knows how the hell McLaren managed to put together this album. With no Johnny Rotten and a useless Sid Vicious, he conjured up all sorts of craziness with Ronnie Biggs, Eddie Tenpole, some orchestra, and pulled an unlikely gem out of the bag. Despite some inevitable 2nd rate moments The Swindle is full of all-time classics. Don’t thing Lydon will agree, mind….
