Details on the recently announced 30th Anniversary edition of London Calling have been revealed. Set for release on December 14, 2009, exactly 30 years after the album's original release in 1979, the album will feature a slightly different feature set than the 25th anniversary edition which is now out of print.

The new version will include the Don Letts documentary The Last Testament: The Making of London Calling as well as three music videos and some home-movie footage of the band. It will not, however, include the Vanilla Tapes from the 25th Anniversary edition. The Vanilla Tapes was a 21 track set of demos and alternate takes from the original recording sessions. In replacement for that, will be a new 20-page booklet and new vinyl "replica" sleeves to match the original version.
