Notes

Track 7, "Pop Goes the Weasel" is an English language nursery rhyme and singing game. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 5249.

Clash bass guitarist, Paul Simmonon chose songs with a "Clash connection", that is, original versions of songs the band may have played or attempted in their early years. Extensive liner notes provide insight into how the songs came into the band's set list.

Track 19 Armagideon Time is credited to 'Willie Williams' on CD: correct listing is to Willi Williams aka Keith Williams. ANV's adjusted.
