A second night of benefit raising for the striking Coal Miners families in England and Wales. Copies of varying quality widely circulate.

Of three lesser ones, one is edited, Brixton Borstal and comes with 2 sec's gaps. It was retitled without gaps North and South.

Arthurs Scragills Xmas Party and Working in a Coalmine II are full but slightly lesser in sound to a nice upgrade which came out of a private collection.

They all have very good sound, but this (Clash War) has a great sound, though the master seems to have some minor problems with the mic?

Highlights include the new songs Dirty Punk and North and South again, but no Fingerpoppin.
