Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros - Glastonbury 1999

this repost was requested by Terry and an excellent show for you it is.this one is taken from a (probably)bbc radio 6 re-broadcast in 2003(i think).anyway its 12 tracks long and features a great mix of clash and mescaleros faves.joe is on great form and dedicates 'rock the casbah' to an ex-drummer of his you may have heard of.the sound here is brilliant and sounds fantastic on either good speakers or you really,really have no excuses in not playing this c.d loud,enjoying it and then leaving a comment on it.thanks!

What an awesome set from Joe & the boys! I was thinking about the Glastonbury documentary when they are playing Straight To Hell and Joe clobbers the BBC camera! Classic moment..." one less cctv..." Do you know if it's from the same set? I bought the Glastonbury double cd just for that performance of Straight To Hell.It's my favorite non-Clash version of the track-bar one other...Live @Bizarre Fest. in Cologne Germany. Thanks for the share,got this playing real loud on my headphones as i type! Top notch!
