This November, Universal Music will reissue a deluxe edition of Present Arms, UB40‘s second album.
The British reggae/pop band’s 1981 long player peaked at number two in the UK album charts and featured two top 20 hits in One in Ten and Don’t Slow Down/Don’t Let It Pass You By. No track listings are currently available for the reissuse, but Amazon UK have this listed as a three-CD set. While that is hardly gospel, the slightly-thicker-than-normal digi-pack shown in the image above suggests it’s probably accurate.
We can assume the companion dub album Present Arms In Dub (release shortly after the main set in 1981) will be part of the bonus offering along with some remixes, instrumentals and perhaps some live tracks.
Present Arms is reissued on 3 November 2014.
