More information at this show is at the Black Market Clash site:
An incomplete version of this show - ending after Safe European Home - has circulated for many years and was posted to Dime most recently in 2012. This version surfaced last year
and was digitized and circulated by users at the Clash City message boards.

This version includes the full broadcast from that night, including 10 extra songs, a lengthy radio introduction while the announcers wait for the Clash to take the stage (track 1), and an interview
conducted backstage after the show. At 34 songs it is one of the longest (maybe the longest) Clash shows. Unfortunately, 3 songs (Washington Bullets, Tommy Gun, and White Man in
Hammersmith Palais) are truncated due to the radio announcer talking over the music. This was also present on the earlier circulating source.
All other songs are complete. The crowd was apparently very rowdy that night and there are numerous adlibs and breaks between songs due to Joe Strummer trying to stop fights or calm the audience down.

mp3 samples are in comments. I'm posting it here with permission of the user who digitized the show; I don't have details on
what exactly he or she did with regard to remastering. Considering that it's a 36 year old AM radio broadcast, it sounds quite good.
