Public Enemy deluxe reissues


Public Enemy‘s second and third albums will be reissued as a deluxe editions early next month as part of the Def Jam 30th anniversary celebrations.

1988’s acclaimed It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back will be a 2CD+DVD set adding a bonus disc of remixes as well as a DVD, Fight The Power…Live. The Hip Hop group’s follow-up was 1990’s Fear Of A Black Planet and that comes as a more modest two-CD package, although the second disc is packed with 18 remixes.

There will be a vinyl reissue of  Fear Of A Black Planet that comes with a special ‘fade-to-black’ 3D lenticular cover that, when turned to the left or right, turns black, with just the band’s iconic cross-hairs visible. A nice collector’s item.

Both reissues are out next week in the US and on 8 December in Europe.
