After the demise of The Clash, Joe Strummer engaged in several other musical productions including one with his The Mescaleros assembly. They released a few albums before his passing in 2002. From those years, a collection of demos, demos, and other rarity tracks alongside the band’s three albums have been treated with care and will now find a home in a new set.

On September 16, Dark Horse Records will release several iterations of a collection to be called Joe Strummer 002: The Mescalero Years. The sets will be sold in 4CD and 7LP box sets that will produce 46 tracks complete with the original albums and their extra tracks. The 4CD box will include a 72-page book that details every aspect of the band’s existence. The 7LP includes a 36-page 12″ x 12″ book. All three albums are newly remastered for the set.

The Mescalero Years will be released, as described, in 4CD, DD, and 7LP box sets. A track from these boxes is presented below.
