This is Big Audio Dynamite - Legacy Edition

Before the rap-meets-rock cultural phenomena of the Beastie Boys and Run DMC there was Big Audio Dynamite. BAD was formed in 1984 by the ex-guitarist and singer of The Clash, Mick Jones. The group were noted for their effective mixture of varied musical styles, incorporating elements of punk rock, dance music, hip-hop, reggae, and funk. This Is Big Audio Dynamite was the debut album and it was originally released in 1985. The album's punch was commemorated last year with THIS IS BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE - LEGACY EDITION. The 2-CD package presents a newly remastered version of the original 8-song album, plus a second CD of 12 bonus tracks comprising rare U.S. and UK 12-inch remixes, edits, dub versions, outtakes, and B-sides - five of them previously unreleased on CD. Columbia/Legacy has done an excellent job with this ultimate version of This Is Big Audio Dynamite. If you liked The Clash, but missed out on B.A.D. back in the day, do yourself a favor and check this one out.
