ANYWAY-on to the music.
This is Disc 1 of Mick Jones' original version of Combat Rock and currently circulates as a bootleg. It was determined to be too long and messy, and Glyn Johns was brought in to cut down the album and cut stuff out, resulting in the Combat Rock you've got in your home. Information can be found here.

Originally planned as a double album entitled Rat Patrol from Fort Bragg, the idea was scrapped after internal wrangling within the group. Mick Jones had produced the first cut, but the other members were dissatisfied and producing duties were handed to Glyn Johns, at which point the album became a single LP. XAnyway- anyone have Disc 2 or DOA or Clash on Broadway Outtakes?
This was intended to be a double album entitled 'Rat Patrol From Fort Bragg'. The rest of the band dismissed it, and called in producer Glyn Johns to cut it down to size for a single LP. All songs became shorter, and a lot tighter, with more pronounced vocals, a much 'tighter' mix musically, and less vague sound effects and extended rapping. Also, four tracks (Cool Confusion, First Night Back In London, Beautiful People and Kill Time) were cut. X
