cdr FM vers.- upgrade dull but better - Sound 4 -
88min - low? - 25 tracks

Video. - full audience recording

Copies of this gig vary from crap to above average.

One version is a single cdr with 4 tracks missing. The second was a tape which the reverse of had lost all semblence of sound and was inaudiable losing half the gig.

A third has a better sound but not brilliant. A split mono, the lead, drums and vocals exist but not the bass and the sound range is a bit restricted. Added to this is a slighly distorted sound here, kind of swirling and a touch thin at the top end, though the concert was outdoors.

A fourth one came from a better source but was a bit blown out at the thin end, but not bad. [87.44]

The best one, is an upgrade, full and with reasonable clarity and good mix. It still is affected by the poor acoustics of an outside sound. The sound on theis one is more toward the bottom end. Avoid the other poor ones and get this one.

On the 12th of October 1985 The Clash gig at Vredenburg in Utrecht in Holland was cancelled at the beginning of october 1985. I have seen advertisements in the daily news paper called "'The Hague Courant" where they spread the news that they start to sell the tickets within two weeks. I phoned with Vredenburg at that time in september 1985 so I know that the advertisement in the Daily Paper is true.

According to a Swedish article the tour was cancelled due to Mick & Topper claims they had rights to the name The Clash, so if Joe & Paul played these gigs they had to share the money the made on these gigs with Mick & Topper!
