Insanity, Bohemian-Style

Legacy recently hipped their Facebook fans to the pre-order page for the double-disc Legacy Edition of This is Big Audio Dynamite, the 1985 debut LP by Big Audio Dynamite. Led by Mick Jones, who was at the time recently fired as guitarist of The Clash, BAD was quite the stylistic melting pot, fusing punk with reggae and club music and garnishing it with samples aplenty. The new edition, released for the album’s 25th anniversary, includes an extra disc of rare and unreleased remixes.

Have a look at the track list after the jump, and place your orders here.

  1. Universal could learn a thing or two from these Legacy Editions and their $15.98 MSRP.
