I would guess it is the standard version. Apparently the sleeve was designed by Paul and the proceeds went to charity.

So if you're a fan of Paul's art...

I'm kind of thinking "I'm Not Down" is my favorite Clash song now.

It's the 3/4 time moment on the second verse that sours the song for me. I thought my record was jumping when I first heard it. It just sounds contrived and trying to be over-clever. Otherwise what a great song.

That's my favorite part of the song because it's a modified soca beat.

It shoulda just formed its own song. It just fuses in awkwardly for me.

Quite.
In the 'Armagideon Times' (vol. 1) Mick said that bridge was a Shirley Bassey cop.

No. I only really know her James Bond things, though I've seen some live footage and think she's great.

Good call. Might be some other ones too, as those staccato stop and start horn lines seem very common for that era of big band charts.
