cdr1 - MASTER - poor but full - Sound 2 - 80min - 1st gen - 22 tracks

cdr2 - MASTER - alt source - average/edited - Sound 3+ - 86min - master - 17 tracks

I just read on BMC that on vince's book there is a phantom date in salerno on the 4th of sept. 84. I have to say that he's wrong! They played in Cava de' Tirreni that is a small town between Naples and
Salerno (15 km to salerno an 40 km to Naples) on the sept 6. The mistake is due to the fact that at that time the stadium where the salerno football team played was in Cava (Stadio Simonetta Lamberti). And the clash played there! Sorry vince, but i'm absolutely sure about it!

cdr1 - A poor recording but full. The tape turnover is on Guns Of Brixton

cdr2 - A much better recording though it has some crowd singing. The opening bars of London Calling cut into Police on My Back missing allthe tracks before. The tape turnover is at the end of Brand New Cadilac.

Cava de’ Tirreni 1984: Cava is a little town between naples and salerno and the gig was held in a stadium. Joe has been in naples without the rest of the band several days before the show and he was
spotted in several place of the city. The show was absolutely brilliant: raw, fast and furious. The new songs were absolutely fab, especially TIE. The higlights of the show were Complete and Police on my back (IMHO the best version ever). The lowdowns: Vince’ trousers. I should have a couple of pictures taken by me that I will send you when I’ll find them. Luca Lanini

Denmark Festival?? (poster)

About the festival gig in Denmark on 12 August in 1984. It's actually a Swedish poster, and The Clash didn't perform. The name "The Clash" is on there just to draw attention to the other bands, it says.

"THE CLASH... Are unfortunately not playing, although these bands are.."

So it was not a date in Scandinavia at that time. Hope I've been to some kind of help.

As part of the celebrations by the Italian Communist Party who's leader had just died or something. According to Vince White in his Clash biography The Last days of the Clash, page 173 the band flew to Milan. It was a hastily set up tour. The first date was down in Salerno before returning back north through Italy.
Sep 4? Salerno
