WHO: The Clash

WHAT: Live at Jaap Edenhal, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1981

WHY: We’re not accustomed here at GC to recommend bootlegs, but this one is probably the mother of Clash bootlegs. Live at Jaap Edenhal is a live bootleg recorded from the console, and catches the Clash still at the height of powers still. This is finally a cohesive, high quality, complete capture of the band playing mostly their entire catalog (Combat Rock excluded). It’s interesting both as a testament to the live power of the Clash, but also as a document of how their more intricate studio tracks were translated into a live setting. Even Ivan Meets GI Joe is on here! It’s also objectively better than From Here to Eternity, which is a grand statement onto itself. And it’s free!
