Tape flip between 16 and 17. Start of 17 cut.

blackmarketclash describes this recording as "When clear it is very good and when not, it is below average." It unfortunately suffers from some distortion throughout and there's a drop out of a few seconds after the first track.

buenaventura notes:
"I flew in to New York City for the first time in my life in early October 2001. It was not the ideal time, but when we had planned the trip months earlier, time to coincide with a Strummer-gig, we couldn't have planned for what would happen on September 11, 2001. My girlfriend at the time had started a job in New York at the beginning of September. I remember we talked on the phone, early in the morning that day, when she went to the subway to get on the train to downtown Manhattan. Never having been there, I couldn't quite place where her office was in relation to the towers, but she was enough blocks away to have not been in any danger. Coming in to New York on a flight from Europe in early October was weird. The plane wasn't very full, i think my original flight got cancelled and i ended up flying Air France instead of KLM, though i can't be sure anymore. I remember taking the subway and the signs "to World Trade Center all times". The area around where the towers used to be was cordoned off, but all of lower Manhattan felt like it was in a defiant daze.

20 years ago, I think I expected Joe to comment more on the situation the city he was playing found itself in, but listening back to it now, i think he says just enough. I remember hanging out before the show with my girlfriend at the time, and she was quite impressed when Joe just walked through the bar area, with a few greetings and exchanges here and there. but that's just who he was."

Nice one. Like minstrel boy as an opener, i mean in general and not just because of the occasion of the show.
