Whats My Name.mp3

Contains the early unreleased Clash tracks I Know What To Think Of You, I Never Did It, How Can I Understand The Flies, Mark Me Absent and Im So Bored with You (not USA).

Good sound for the recording. Some muffling distance but the much of the sound is clear and sounds from a low source. Enjoyable and on a par with other good recordings from the era.
