Joe Strummer - 001 album FLAC
Joe Strummer 001 is a career-spanning compilation album by English musician Joe Strummer. The 32 song album was released on 28 September 2018 by Ignition Records and features 12 previously unreleased songs, as well as known favourites from his recordings with the 101ers, the Mescaleros and his extensive soundtrack work along with alternate versions of previously released songs.
Joe Strummer 001 includes a few tracks from Strummer's pre-Clash pub rock band the 101'ers (including the engaging "Keys to Your Heart"), but the vast majority of the material dates from after Strummer dissolved the Clash in 1986, and with the notable exception of the harrowing "Love Kills" (recorded for the film Sid & Nancy), for the. most part this finds him moving past the into-the-wind punk that was his band's trademark in favor of an eclectic brand of international influences, from the rough Latino boogie of "Trash City" and the raga-flavor.
Joe Strummer 001 meets those collectors’ needs, but it’s much more than some utilitarian compendium. Eschewing chronology for collage, Joe Strummer 001 paints a vivid and complex portrait of Strummer as he existed outside of the Clash. Each CD opens with a version of Letsgetabitarockin, a nifty little Chuck Berry lift he wrote for his first band, the pub rockers the 101’ers. It’s an appropriate opening salvo.
