The Clash - Rat Patrol from Fort Bragg

"Combat Rock was originally planned as a double album with the working title Rat Patrol from Fort Bragg, but the idea was scrapped after internal wrangling within the group. Mick Jones had produced the first cut, but the other members were dissatisfied and producing duties were handed to Glyn Johns at which point the album became a single LP. The original cut has since been obtained and subsequently bootlegged."(from wikipedia)
this is a strange boot only because i have it in 3 different versions.this one is a single disk version but i also have it in a 2 disk version which includes this posting plus a whole load of demos from these sessions.i also have a version called combat out-rock which features a slightly different track listing to the one posted here.anyway for all the clash fans that come to visit the blog this ones for you.i will post the other versions later if anyone is interested.leave a message in the c-box if youd like to hear them.ok then its time to listen to this public service announcement with guitars.enjoy then leave a comment.thanks!
p.s some more clash goodies to come later today.stay tuned!

Thanks so much for this. I've wanted to hear it ever since reading a Mojo article about the CR sessions.
