Ignition Records is releasing ‚ÄòJoe Strummer 001,‚Äô the first compilation to span Joe Strummer‚Äôs career outside of his recordings with The Clash.‚ÄòJoe Strummer 001‚Äô features 32 tracks and includes favourites from his recordings with the 101ers, The Mescaleros, his solo albums, soundtrack work plus 12 previously unreleased songs.
All the formats include tracks that have never appeared anywhere before as well as new remasters. Exclusive to all formats is an album of unreleased material including an early demo of ‚ÄòThis Is England' entitled ‚ÄòCzechoslovak Song/Where Is England,‚Äôa solo demo of ‚ÄòLetsagetabitarockin‚Äô recorded in Elgin Avenue in 1975, outtakes from ‚ÄòSid & Nancy‚Äô featuring Mick Jones and unreleased songs ‚ÄòRose Of Erin‚Äô, the biographical and mythical recording ‚ÄòThe Cool Impossible‚Äô and ‚ÄòLondon Is Burning‚Äô one of the last songs Joe recorded.
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 front man to emerge from the punk explosion of the late seventies. After Joe‚Äôs untimely death in December 2002 it was discovered that he had been quite an archivist of his own work, having barns full of writings and tapes stored in his back garden. There are now over 20,000 items in the Joe Strummer Archive.The archiving of this material and compiling of ‚ÄòJoe Strummer 001‚Äô was overseen by Joe‚Äôs widow Lucinda Tait and compilation producer Robert Gordon McHarg III.
All tracks were restored and mastered by Grammy Award winner Peter J. Moore at the E. Room in Toronto Canada. On going through cassettes and recording tapes it was discovered that Joe was rather frugal and keen on hiding tracks. On cassettes he would leave 20 minutes between songs. On the 1‚Äù 8 track recordings it was discovered there were hidden tracks superimposed onto each other. For example tracks 1-4 were taken by one song and tracks 5-8 by two other songs which were thought when played back to be caused by tape denigration until the tapes went to Peter J Moore who was able to separate one song from another.
Super Deluxe Boxset - Limited edition collector‚Äôs box with Wibalin wrap, containing both the deluxe CD book as well as the 4LP vinyl product.
2CDs and 4LPs containing rare and unheard audio - restored and remastered by Peter J Moore.

Art directed and designed by Robert Gordon McHarg III who previously worked on the Clash ‚ÄòSound System‚Äô box set with Paul Simonon, the John Cooper Clarke compilation ‚ÄòAnthologia‚Äô and curated the Black Market Clash Exhibition.
Gordon says, ‚ÄúThe idea behind the 64 page A4 notebook is that it‚Äôs done as if Joe had designed it himself, telling his story, an insight into his workings including hand written lyrics with personal notes and scribbles.‚Äù
