Light in The Attic to reissue Public Image Ltd's First Issue, do a pretty good job of actually making a re-release interesting

Whenever I hear about an album being reissued, my first question is always “why should I buy that?” Even if it’s an album I love and it’s been remastered, I’m always hesitant. Only when I feel like my experience or understanding of the album can be enhanced do I indulge in one of the endless string of reissues that get brought out every month.

Well it seems like Light in the Attic is trying to grab the attention of discerning music buyers such as myself with their reissue of Public Image Ltd’s album First Issue. They’ve reproduced the original LP sleeve and included extras like a poster, news clipping, and stickers. A little more bang for your buck. Tack on that this is the first time this album has been properly released in the US and it sounds quite nearly like the perfect storm. The LP and 2CD editions are both up for preorder on Light in the Attic’s site, so they can be delivered straight to your doorstep upon June 18 release.

First Issue tracklisting:

01. Theme
02. Religion I
03. Religion II
04. Annalisa
05. Public Image
06. Low Life
07. Attack
08. Fodderstompf
