Public Enemy / Live from Metropolis Studios / super deluxe

Last August hip-hop legends Public Enemy performed an intimate show at London’s Metropolis Studios, giving 125 lucky fans a chance to see them up close and personal. Inevitably, this was filmed and recorded and this September will be released across five different formats including a super deluxe edition box set.

Public Enemy Live From Metropolis Studios features almost 120 minutes of the band’s biggest hits, including Shut Em Down, Bring The Noise, Fight The Power and 911 Is A Joke and will be issued on high definition 1080p blu-ray and DVD (both with 5.1 surround) and as a 2CD ‘soundtrack’ set. A 2LP black vinyl will also be released.

However, what you really want is the limited edition Super Deluxe Edition box set! This brings together the blu-ray, the 2CD, and an exclusive double vinyl LP specially pressed on clear vinyl. The box also comes with a 12-inch booklet and an MP3 download voucher.

The good news is that while the double black vinyl in the UK is £30 on its own, if you purchase the super deluxe box from Italy, the price is just under £38 at the time of writing. So £8 extra gets you the blu-ray, the double-CD, the clear vinyl and the box and all the packaging! That’s an amazing deal. Even better, if you live across the Atlantic because the Italian price equates to about $49 US or around $65 CA plus shipping. This box is not available on Amazon US at present but price on Amazon Canada is $170 CS so that’s a clear saving of over $100 CA.

Public Enemy Live at Metropolis Studios is released on 4 September 2015.

Mr Paté

A question :
Is it really the deluxe edition (2xClear vinyl + Blue ray – 2xCD) on amazon itlaly?

Mr Paté

I think ordering too.


Amazon’s Deluxe Set is all sold out by the looks of things but UK Universal has it for £45.


It might be cheaper, but I’d rather pay the extra few quid and not have it kicked around Europe for a few days first!


With Simon F on this one. Glad to see they’re still alive and kicking given how what they’ve always had to say still rings true more than ever. Sad but true. Can’t overstate the Bomb Squad production values from back in the day – how could they possibly be expected to sustain such utter brilliance?


bomb squad was the right production for the time, quite right. but things move on- sampling costs big money now and it’s no longer the wild west in that regard, TX no longer the D.J. etc.. chuck is still writing great lyrics so no, I don’t think they just rest on their laurels. there is always things that need to said and this is a political band that addresses ongoing problems. but like most old school bands of any genre, when they do concerts it is a heritage thing. no-one will want to hear all a new album in full- which they currently have out. they want the classics. the recent HITS, VIDS and DOCS box -1999-2009 showcases superb post DEF JAM material. the quality is certainly there, both in beats and words. let’s face it hip hop is largely a busted flush, there are some decent underground artists but the commercial side- which P.E. crossed into and did well in on their own terms, is finished. I for one always look forward to new P.E. material and support the projects they do. so I am quite happy to disagree.

If this was 1987/8 I would of jumped on this LAMF. But in 2015 it’s just another once great band trading on past glories. Shame. Good looking box though…


so you don’t rate any of the recent output then? ok, righto.


Saw them last year … they are certainly *not* cranking it out for the cash

Not sure whether I need this, but for some reason I ordered it.


so, if you order the “Live From Metropolis Studios (Dlx Box Set)” from amazon.it on Audio CD format, you get the vinyl as well?

It says that you get three discs, but is that the CD and DVD or CD and vinyl?


it comes with 4 discs, not 3… my bad.


had the deluxe on order in the UK for 59 – so cancelled. great info. on the Italy deal. great price. de-Montfort hall Leicester 88 (with Run DMC) – shook hands with flavor! – docklands 90 (with EPMD) – great memories and one the greatest bands in history of any genre. still banging out the quality and telling it how it is.
