Next up : Motor City Roller Rink, Detroit, MI : March 10, 1980

This upload was kindly supplied by (Xtopher) Chris and was taken from the JEMS Archive via Dime. We are grateful to Jared (RIP) who sadly passed away in October 2016 for sharing his fantastic archive with his trusted friends/experts to watch over. This upload is made up from three separate sources to make a complete show. I have made a couple of repairs and remixed the sound.

This show was an added date for the tour in honour of the great soul legend Jackie Wilson (RIP).

One off my personal favorites.
Big improvement on what we had previously.

Cheers mate. It's a good show. Only wish the full show was the same quality throughout the encores from the lesser source are at least listenable and we have a complete show.

Man, three songs in and this Roller Rink gig is sounding fucking great. Another one that seems to have passed me by.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I think the first 17 tracks or so are excellent. Then it gets let down a little by the secondary source material. But it is a great listen.

I still have the issue of Creem magazine when they did a cover story highlighting this gig. I forget who the interviewer was but he stayed up all night drinking with Joe and they talked comics, film, everything. The dude said he'd take Joe to the Motown studio for a tour; Joe was psyched but didn't make it. Fun story - back when rock journalists really knew their shit and could connect with the musicians.

Speedy recovery mate, my wife was down for over a month with it, lucky I haven't caught it yet.

Looking forward to more goodies.

I keep reading how this is one of the worst flu seasons in recent memory. They say it is killing about 100 people a week in the US. One of my mom's more distant cousins (I didn't know her) died from it a couple weeks back at 61. Glad everyone here seems to have gotten through it alright and definitely glad I have not picked it up (knock on wood)!!

Earthquake Weather is as good as it will ever be now. The issues are in the songwriting and performance, which are both timid and shrinking back from the spotlight when they should be crowdsurfing. However, this mix is a brilliant salvage job. It's a shame that nobody's giving Mark the original tracks so he can bring the vocals even further higher in the mix, but with the tools at his disposal, I can't even describe the improvement. Wiping the instrumental murk away reveals some really tight rhythms that Strummer lacked the confidence to show off. The best moments of the original LP - Island Hopping, Shouting Street, Ride Your Donkey, and now, for the first time, Sleepwalk can sit comfortably in a playlist wth the Mescaleros without embarrassment. That last one is vital, because in this remix, I think I've been gifted a new Joe Strummer song. And the additions which were always great (Cholo Vest, 15th Brigade) are clearer and more present. Cholo Vest is fucking incredible. It's the sound of bitter, self-scalding, weaponised insecurity. A human emotion, powerful and consuming that art tends to leave be.

I think Marky's done Joe a huge favour here.

Can you link the EW link? I seemed to miss it when Marky first completed it.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
