Searching "live Clash" on YouTube doesn't bring up too much, even if I append a year. Is there any other resource for streaming or downloading live footage of the band (complete or near-complete shows are ideal, obvs)? I like watching these on weekends, but it's pretty hard to come by a bootleg DVD anymore.
There isn't a great deal of live footage that's the reason your search amounts to little. Is there anythhing in particular you are looking for?

Nah, I just have the Tokyo and Jersey performances, and the Paris one that I still need a PAL DVD player for...I was just jonesing for some more. I watched the Munich one, but that seems to be it, really.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)

There's very little else in that quality. The rest is all grainy black and white footage. Other than what's officially out there from TV performances etc.

What about the Clash on TV comp? Tons of great color footage on that, thiugh tv performances as you mention.
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.

Yeah I have that one too, but I was hoping for more full shows because I like watching them bloom.

Listening through June 18th of the Hollywood Palladium shows. Wow, this one is really good. They sound really excited to play, Terry has some pretty good moments, and just overall they're playing really well. I think this one is a hidden gem in the Casbah tour. I also think the tape runs a bit fast (definitely the wrong pitch, had to correct that one) but I think the faster tape really adds something to the recording. Shows a bit how maybe some of these songs might've sounded with Topper. Like Casbah for instance, I could see it going at about the tempo it is in this recording. Hard and fast compared to what it was later on in 82, bit slower and kind of laid back.

It sounds like a Zappa boot title.
