REVIEW:
Superbly produced disc of fragmentary collectable material. The sources are tops and they have been mastered here to rival a commercial release in fidelity. Highly recommended for all levels of music collectors. The standout highlight for me on this set is "Capital Air" from The Clash's stand at Bond's Casino in Times Square during that hot summer of 1981...this is taken from what I believe is the 4th night of that 17 night run and is a strange but brilliantly intriguing guest appearance by poet Allen Ginsberg, providing a very long narrative intro to the piece. Weird but wonderful at that same time. The stellar Digipack case bolsters the recommendation on this title. It's quite nice and of high production quality.
