I finally return to the mission.
This is the version of Sean Flynn found on the original version of what was to become Combat Rock, namely Rat Patrol From Fort Bragg (hence RPFFB). RPFFB is essentially the Combat Rock songs produced and mixed by Mick Jones plus a few songs that were cut from end product.

This particular song, Sean Flynn, is here on RPFFB several minutes (191 seconds to be exact) longer than the Combat Rock version, and, personally, I find very, very good, as the music is utterly beautiful, and I could listen to it forever and ever.
Though not too beautiful of course, as it is also very serious. Appears to be another Clash song at least somewhat inspired by Apocalypse Now (Charlie Don't Surf would appear to be the other song obviously influenced by that amazing movie released in 1979), and the sparse lyrics talk about photographer and actor Sean Flynn who dissapeared and was most likely killed by the Khmer Rouge in the djungles of Cambodia 1970 during the Vietnamese war.

But, I digress. Let us just all instead enjoy the wonderful music.
