I'd like to begin by thanking j-blokhed for this recording. Here is an amazing Clash show from late '78. This was a great period for the band who are in fine form and are complemented here by an excellent soundboard source. I decided to remaster this recording since I liked the performance so much and wanted to hear it in as high quality as possible. For the remastering, I applied virtually the same edits to all tracks. A couple of tracks were slightly different in frequency response and were adjusted accordingly. There were also a couple of drop-outs which I corrected as good as possible. No noise reduction of any kind has been used here. A low amount of hiss is present after equalizing but not enough to be a distraction or even heard at most levels. The equalization used is light in general as the recording only needed a cut in a few resonating frequencies and a slight boost in some higher frequencies. I hope you like what I've done and consider this an improvement over the original source. Enjoy!

Big thanks to j-blokhed for the source of this recording!


THE CLASH - 28 December, 1978
The Lyceum, London

Here's another SBD - and one of my favorites. The Clash played three shows around New Year's 1979 that were recorded for possible use in the film Rude Boy. The dates were Dec 28-89, 1978, and Jan 3, 1979.

The first of these shows to fall into collector's hands was a very good audience recording released first on LP, and then on CD, as "Sort It Out". This is NOT that show. The exact dates of these recordings has been in question, but I believe that "Sort It Out" (also released as "USA 1979" [sic] as well as other, later, titles) is in fact Jan 3, 1979. I think that this recording is Dec 28, 1978.

This tape fell into my hands indirectly from an inside source (KV), and was probably 2nd-3rd gen when recorded to CD-R. It has since spread throughout collector's circles, and the artwork included here is strictly homemade "fan club".

This is one of the very best - enjoy!
