Live At Shea Stadium Product Information
Live At Shea Stadium by Clash was released Oct 07, 2008 on the Legacy label. On October 13, 1982, the Clash opened for the Who at the venerable New York stadium where the Beatles had once performed, and by all accounts, the crowd went nearly as wild for the punk vets, who were then at the height of their commercial clout. And while the band's explosive live energy and charisma were best suited for clubs, LIVE AT SHEA is a testament to a quartet that drew an audience right into their righteous intensity, no matter what the setting. Live At Shea Stadium contains a single disc with 16 songs. ...See Full Description

||Very good energy|
I really like this CD - it is very well done. It is just a straight through start to finish with intro and between song banter of their 50 minute set as the second opening act for The Who at Shea Stadium. The Clash had three front men - Joe Strummer sings most of the songs, but Mick Jones leads the way on Train in Vain and Should I Stay, and Paul Simonon adds his Cockney growl to Guns of Brixton. All of their albums are represented, with excellent versions of Tommy Gun and English Civil War from Give 'em Enough Rope and a lengthy dub-style version of The Magnificent Seven from Sandanista. Spanish Bombs is wonderful, London Calling is as powerful as ever, and a re-arranged Rock the Casbah (no piano) is well received. The only drawback is that Topper Headon had succumbed to his vices and was thrown out of the band, so the drum seat is filled by Terry Chimes - he keeps the beat but lacks the flair and nuance of Topper. Twenty six years later this still has some power and glory. The only band that matters - The Clash.
