iTunes Review

Joe Strummer is now a legend. Even if he'd only been a member of The Clash, his legacy would be complete. However, Strummer found his second wind with The Mescaleros, and the group's musical adventurism took him to places the latter-day Clash suggested he'd find. Strummer's three Hellcat albums—Rock Art and the X-Ray Style, Global a Go Go, and Streetcore—are featured, along with more than 20 bonus tracks, consisting of b-sides, live cuts, and dub versions of his tunes. The b-sides show Strummer's great range of interests, including covers of Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come," The Specials' "Rudi, a Message to You," and The Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop," plus live versions of reggae tunes The Clash was known to perform ("Armagideon Time," "Pressure Drop"). The 2002 concert (which turned out to be Strummer's second-to-last appearance) includes on-fire performances of Mescaleros material and a healthy dose of Clash classics, including Mick Jones (!) joining Strummer for the encore of "Bankrobber," "White Riot," and "London's Burning."

Great Tunes! Joe Lives! Deal of the Century! 57 tunes for $25!

Buy it and be amazed all over again. The Acton Concert is worth the price alone!

A Fitting Epitah

I already own all the original albums, but bought them again for all the extra tracks, which are fantastic. RIP Joe, you are missed,

Through music we can live forever

Never got around to buying these before but if you're a Clash/Joe Strummer fan it is well worth it to buy this collection. The only problem is that I listened to the Acton concert and I was saddened by the fact that I'll never get to see Joe perform live :(
