We continue our commemoration of this week’s 25th anniversary reissue of the groundbreaking This Is Big Audio Dynamite with this seven-minute electronic press kit assembled by bandmember Don Letts that the folks at Columbia/Legacy sent out to the media on Wednesday.
The video features a mid-’80s interview with Letts and Mick Jones in which they discuss the origin and philosophy of Big Audio Dynamite, mixed in with music videos, concert footage (including a brief shot of B.A.D.’s live debut in October 1984) and other clips.
