In 2012, Hellcat Records released Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros Live at Acton Town Hall, a limited run release issued for Record Store Day. The record is notable for documenting a November 15, 2002 live show that Strummer played to benefit striking firefighters. At the end of the show, fellow The Clash member Mick Jones played three songs with Strummer to close out the show. The record has been out of print since then and regularly goes for about $60 on the collector's market. Well, Epitaph records is going to be releasing a straight re-issue of the record, including its clear plastic sleeve and photo copied "cover." The re-issue is out March 17.
