Both the LP and full recording have a very similar sound. The tape is a touch less thin in sound, but with a fractionally less dynamic sound and a touch less clarity. Both are very good.

The sound on the LP is very clear but a little thin a distant and a touch toward the high end. However it has a very good sound with great clarity. The vocals, drums and lead are all clear and the bass just hangs on. There is no distortion.

It delivers more great versions of the underated Cut the Crap album including Are you Ready for War (best live sounding version?), This is England and Three Card Trick

"Hello, I'm a french clash' fan and i saw your blackmarketclash web site. fantastic, really very good!

I've got informations for you: there is an "encore" of the concert of the clash in paris on thursday 1 march 1984, i know it, i was there and i recorded it!

Here's the story: they played many songs and stop with "garageland". during maybe 10 minutes the audience ask for an encore... nothing to do! and about 15 or 20 minutes, when 3/4 of the peoples where outside (the concert place was a very big tent, like the americans circus), the clash came back on stage!!! they played 3 or 4 songs including powerfull versions of london's burning, janie jones (twice) and of course White riot!

i'll send you the copy off the ticket and maybe the recording later (i recorded the concert but someone stole at my home the first tape and i'm trying to find the second one containing the "encore" of this concert)"

Thanx a lot for your work. it's great for clash fans, you have made a very good job. i was at Espace Balard March 1 1984. A lot of people waiting for them. Good gig but very noisy. joe said "La lumière sur les gens, la lumière sur les gens..." (Spotlight on people...). Im looking for my friends when they finish and i was suddenly push front of stage because light off and band came once. it was fantastic. A lot of energy. Vince write to me it was one of the best they do. Eric

this gig never took place. the band were scheduled to play Espace Ballad on the 23rd Feb. but this had to be re-sheduled to March 1st as a national lorry drivers strike blocked the trucks carrying the gear at Calais. Tickets stubs however stiff carry the 23rd date for a price of 80F which would have been about £6 at the time.
