The Clash - Live at Shea Stadium

This mambo jambo is finally getting released as an album in October (just in time for my birthday), and I am psyched.

The Clash's Shea Stadium Gig Heading To CD

Long bootlegged and sought after by collectors, the Clash's Oct. 13, 1982, performance at New York's Shea Stadium will finally see official release Oct. 7 via Legacy.

The gig found the Clash opening for the Who on the latter band's "farewell" tour, and features a wealth of favorites, from "London Calling" and "Police on My Back" to "The Magnificent Seven" and "Clampdown."

The band, which at the time was touring in support of its recent album "Combat Rock," also offered up the singles from that effort, "Should I Stay or Should I Go" and "Rock the Casbah." According to Legacy, late guitarist Joe Strummer found the Shea tapes while preparing to move into a new house.


Live at Shea Stadium:

01 Kosmo Vinyl Introduction
02 London Calling
03 Police on My Back
04 The Guns of Brixton
05 Tommy Gun
06 The Magnificent Seven
07 Armagideon Time
08 The Magnificent Seven (Return)
09 Rock the Casbah
10 Train in Vain
11 Career Opportunities
12 Spanish Bombs
13 Clampdown
14 English Civil War
15 Should I Stay or Should I Go
16 I Fought the Law

I was there.
The Clash opening for The Who, my first trip to NYC, first experience with a ticket scalper.
Not a bad night for a teenager.

That's pretty freaking awesome, I'm quite jealous. Well, now you can buy a legitimate album version of the concert you were at.

I have two of their albums: The Clash and London Calling. Anything else worth getting?

They are pretty much all worth getting with the exception of Cut The Crap.

I wasn't a big fan of Combat Rock myself. Although I don't think I've listened to it in at least a decade.

That's a weird one, because it has some of their all time biggest singles mixed with some less than stellar tracks. Stellar part:

Know Your Rights (Yertle once called this the best album opener ever, he may have a point)
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Rock the Casbah
Straight to Hell
Ghetto Defendant (this one has grown on me after realizing what I used to think was a "random voice" is actually Allan Ginsberg)

Not so stellar part:
Everything else.

There's definitely a lot of fluff on it (7 of 12 tracks...), which makes it crap to listen to in full. Apparently it was the band's biggest album sales wise when it was released, I assume (and hope) London Calling has sold more than it in the last 26 years.

I would listen to it again, but I only have it on vinyl, and that may have been purged already.
