    Cool!
    Seems impossible to me that this album was released 40 years ago. I don't feel that old!

    yes long time ago now.

    additionally, the event celebrated the clashes political work as part of the wider labour movement and the way the clash
    helped to inspire hundreds of thousands of young people in late 70's uk - including the legendary rock against racisim.

    i was the technical director and took some of those snaps while multi tasking around the production - really nice event.
