A great 7 inch vinyl this is. The first two tracks are cover outtakes from the a 1980 session and the sound quality is excellent on them. The band rock performing Louie Louie (what do you expect? This is The Clash) and I like Joe singing King Of The Road, especially near the end when it fades away. (If you want to obtain Louie Louie and King Of The Road check out Clash On Broadway Outtakes or Golden Bullets.)

The two live tracks are great also. The sound is a bit muffled but the quality is still good. There's some enjoyable banter between Joe and the audience for a minute, during which he says "We're waiting for Mick Jones, to do his hair!", then when White Riot kicks in it's fast and furious, and just superb. The band don't stop for a second and they're into 1977 as soon as White Riot is over. Sheer brilliance. A great piece of vinyl, and if you see it, snap it up.


Comes in a great fold-over sleeve with a nice design and a picture of the band on the front. The centre of the vinyl is blank white labels.
