Joe Strummer 001,’ is the first compilation to span Joe Strummer’s career outside of his recordings with The Clash. ‘Joe Strummer 001’ includes fan favourites from his recordings with the 101ers and The Mescaleros, his solo albums, soundtrack work plus an album of unreleased songs. 
Punk pioneer, singer, songwriter, recording artist, activist, musical and political inspiration for a generation and mighty diamond Joe Strummer was the most charismatic and passionate frontman to emerge from the punk explosion of the late seventies.
After Joe’s untimely death in December 2002 it was discovered that Joe had been an archivist of his own work, having barns full of writings and tapes stored in his back garden. The archiving of this material and compiling of ‘Joe Strummer 001’ was overseen by Joe’s widow Luce and Robert Gordon McHarg III. All tracks have been restored and mastered by Grammy Award winner Peter J. Moore at the E. Room in Toronto, Canada. 
This release features new remasters and the previously unreleased material includes an early demo of ‘This Is England’ entitled ‘Czechoslovak Song/Where Is England,’ a solo demo of ‘Letsagetabitarockin’ recorded in Elgin Avenue in 1975, outtakes from ‘Sid & Nancy’ featuring Mick Jones and unreleased songs ‘Rose Of Erin,’ the biographical and mythical recording ‘The Cool Impossible’ and ‘London Is Burning’ one of the last songs Joe recorded.
