A few years ago, writer Jimmy
Guterman produced The
Sandinista Project, in which 36 performers each covered one song
from the Clash's Sandinista! Jimmy writes to tell us he's doing
something with it online today:
"It's Joe Strummer's birthday, a good day to give Clash fans a
present. The Sandinista Project didn't set any sales record and
of course the number of copies shared on the Net was greater than the
number we sold. We didn't undertake the project to make ourselves any
money (it was a charity record) so I didn't mind that it was available
everywhere for free. But it did bother me that so many of the
torrented versions sounded like crap.To rectify this situation, for
one day only, we're offering, without charge,the full record in good
quality, as well as one bonus cut and PDFs of the CD booklet and
packaging. And hurry up: this is a 24-hour offer. At midnight Pacific
Time tonight, it's gone."
Project: free for one day only!
