The Clash at Shea Stadium
Although last night's game was a rough one to watch, we still had a great time at the ball park.

And the highlight was I finally got to meet Greg, from Faith & Fear in Flushing, truly the best Mets blog there is. Greg had a great post yesterday  on bringing back Edgardo Alfonzo for the last game at Shea. Check it out.

Greg was also the first to forward me the news that "The Clash Live at Shea Stadium" soundtrack will be officially released this October. What an amazing setlist from the second show they played at Shea:

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

From the release:

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.
