The Clash - The Boston Tapes

another post plucked from the 'cd-r mix' box is this one from the clash.i thought id posted it before but i cant find it on the blog so it may have been deleted.possibly.anyway a little while ago someone asked if i had it and i said i had(i think this when i thought id posted it!) so for them here it the text file in the folder says the sound is good quality but a wee bit distorted in places so i think its probably an audience recording.i may have got the info on that text file from so id advise you to go there for more im really rambling today so while im off to work i want you all to listen to this,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

Angry Samoans - Back from Samoa
