Gang of Four Reissue

According to, Gang of Four's "Entertainment!" is being reissued, with extra stuff added. Here's the story:

"Out of print since 1997, Gang of Four's seminal 1979 debut album 'Entertainment!' will be reissued on May 17 via Rhino. The original 12-song track list has been bolstered with the four-track 'Yellow' EP and four additional previously unreleased recordings. 'Entertainment!' has also been re-pressed on 180-gram vinyl for a May 10 release. Among the new additions, perhaps of most interest are alternate versions of album tracks 'Contract' and 'Guns Before Butter' and live versions of the unrecorded 'Blood Free' and a cover of the Velvet Underground's 'Sweet Jane.'"

Reissue, live recordings, Velvet Underground cover. Sounds like Gang of Four are starting to see the light. I hope they'll put out a trip-hop record next.
