Today would have been the great Joe Strummer’s 60th birthday, and his former label Hellcat Records is commemorating the occasion with a new digital compilation. Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros, The Hellcat Years complies all the tracks from his three studio albums — Rock Art and the X-Ray Style, Global A Go-Go, and Streetcore — along with rare b-sides and never before heard live recordings with his band The Mescaleros from 1999 and 2002. Of particular highlight is the inclusion of three live tracks taken from the November 2002 reunion between Strummer and his Clash bandmate Mick Jones at a benefit concert for the Fire Brigades Union in London. Strummer would die a month later.

As a first listen, Rolling Stone is streaming an unheard live recording of the track “Johnny Appleseed”.

Along with the compilation, Hellcat will reissue Rock Art and the X-Ray Style, Global A Go-Go, and Streetcore as standalone releases on September 25th.
