Sounds worth getting as its official. Thanks Fre. :D

It wouldn't surprise me if I've got most of the cuts already.

For some reason, for me The Clash haven't lasted the test of time as well as bands like The Only ones and The Adverts.

The Clash ’Live at Shea Stadium’ released 

SonyBMG release The Clash ’Live at Shea Stadium’ album and 'The Clash Live – Revolution Rock’ DVD simultaneously on 6th October. 

Recorded at New York’s Shea Stadium in 1982, 'Live at Shea Stadium’ captures the band at the peak of its powers and on devastating form. Bristling with energy and attitude, 'Live at Shea Stadium’ is destined to feature alongside James Brown at the Apollo, The Who at Leeds and Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison as one of the greatest live recordings of all time.

The Clash, opening for The Who on their farewell tour of the US, played two nights at the legendary Shea Stadium (12th & 13th Oct 1982). Recorded by Glyn Johns, the album features the second night’s performance in its entirety. Despite being the support act, the New York Post reported 'there were as many Clash fans on those nights as Who fans'. One of the few remaining unreleased Clash treasures, the recordings have long been sought after by fans. The tapes were unearthed by the late Joe Strummer whilst packing for a move.

'Live at Shea Stadium’ track listing:

Kosmo Vinyl Introduction
London Calling
Police On My Back
Guns Of Brixton
Tommy Gun
The Magnificent Seven
Armagideon Time
The Magnificent Seven (return)
Rock The Casbah
Train In vain
Career Opportunities
Spanish Bombs
Clampdown
English Civil War
Should I Stay Or Should I Go
I Fought The Law

The Clash released their fifth album 'Combat Rock’ prior to the US tour. The album contained the single 'Should I Stay or Should I Go’, which received heavy airplay in the US. The following single, 'Rock the Casbah’ was a Top 40 hit in the US, with heavy rotation on MTV. Original Clash drummer Terry Chimes, who appeared on the band’s eponymously-titled debut album, plays on 'Live at Shea Stadium’.

Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets baseball team since its unveiling in 1964, has hosted some truly legendary shows. The Beatles were the first band to perform at the venue in 1965 and the success of that concert proved for the first time that stadiums could hold shows on such a large scale. Other acts that have appeared at Shea over the years include the Rolling Stones, The Police, Bruce Springsteen and Simon & Garfunkel. Sadly, the stadium has reached the end of its life and will be demolished around the time 'Live at Shea’ is released.

'Live at Shea Stadium’ will be available in deluxe ltd edition and standard CD formats.

Yeah - it sounds pretty good - especially for only five days rehearsal with Terry Chimes!
