So, apparently Light In the Attic Records is not reissuing The Life of Chris Gaines. Too bad, but the Seattle-based label has something better in mind: a vinyl and two-CD reissue of Public Image Limited’s debut album, First Issue. As the label’s 100th release, the album will be reissued as a double disc set, with one CD featuring a 1978 BBC interview with John Lydon, plus B-side “The Cowboy Song.” The CD version will also contain a sticker.
The vinyl version of the album will contain a fold-out poster, replica tabloid ads, and a download card for the album, which will include “The Cowboy Song.” Check out the tracklist below.
2. “Religion I”
3. “Religion II”
5. “Public Image”
6. “Low Life”
1. “The Cowboy Song”
2. “Interview With John Lydon – BBC Radio 1, Rock On, Oct. 28, 1978”
