just to give insight into the San Francisco show. The Club was called The Temple Beautiful, which was famed Filmore during the Hippies days. The club would then become the Sound Of Music Club which was more hardcore in the early 80's. It is now called The Fillmore again. I understand that the show that the Clash played was a benefit and that the New Youth origization never used the money that was donated for the show. Nice post!!!!

Hi! Just discovered your blog by chance. Is it possible to list the Clash "decent audiophile sound quality" downloads files? All your files are hosted on Rapidshare which is not very friendly to me. Thanking you in anticipation!
