"Great show; always looking for Clash bootlegs. Will definitely bookmark your site. More Clash please!"Ask, Mr. Donihue, and you shall receive!
Here's the great Rocker Station bootleg, put together by super-Clash fan Sharoma. As per a previous post I did many moons ago on a bootleg by this band, I'm going to get out of the way and turn the narrative description of this set over to him . . . only Sharoma - come in Sharoma!
I didn't hear about this comp until about four/five years ago, long after it first appeared, so I had the devil's own time trying to track down a copy of it - it was especially tough since this is really not an official bootleg, just a fan's collection of odds and sods. But mission accomplished, and gladly so; there's some gold on this here disc - including the live version of "The Magnificent Seven" the band played on Tom Snyder's Tomorrow show in 1981, while they were in New York during their legendary Bonds International Casino residency, and the demo version of the same song from the previous year (then titled "Dirty Harry [Speed Mix]").
Here's the rest of the track listing:
- Radio One
- Dirty Harry [Speed Mix]
- Rock The Casbah (Hot Tracks Mix)
- Overpowered By Funk (New York Remix) [Speed Mix]
