  • 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. Highlights include ferocious takes on early favorites "Career Opportunities" and "Tommy Gun," as well as bassist Paul Simonon's expertly laconic vocal performance on "Guns of Brixton." But hearing a reinvigorated "Rock The Casbah" is indicative of just what a lean, no-frills, powerful live machine The Clash had become. SHEA is a crucial document in the annals of a band whose legacy will likely never be exhausted.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.81) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he album captures a rousing, crystalline-sounding Clash show, featuring stone classics like 'Tommy Gun' and 'Spanish Bombs.'"

Spin (p.89) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Guns of Brixton' opens bouncing like Antmusic, and serious statements such as 'Career Opportunities' feel downright cheerful."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.49) - "[T]his 15-track performance is an important reminder of just how awe-inpsiring the London quartet were..."

Blender (Magazine) (p.81) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The show memorialized here was mounted as the Clash were falling apart....LIVE AT SHEA STADIUM is a pleasure."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.79) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "For the Clash fans this showcases an outstanding stadium band in full flow. Coming off the back of the release of COMBAT ROCK, the band are in fine form throughout..."

Uncut (magazine) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Opener 'London Calling' is clipped and brutally precise, a squalling 'Police On My Back' an early assertion of the band's rebel credentials."

A little gem of an album, this is the Clash at their dynamic best! A must for anyone who wished they had seen them and hadn't, like me. This is as good as it gets without actually being there! My only gripe is there aren't enough songs. Apart from that, Welcome to the Casbah club!..........
