A huge improvement in sound on the original CD! Plus, it has 7 extra tracks and a video of 'Mea Culpa'. It must be noted that the 'new' cover (a reinvention of the old one) is just a slipcase, and the original is on the booklet, thankfully. Personally I like both - they suit the fresh poppy sound of the album.
The album itself has not aged, a remarkable feat. In fact the integration of vocal samples has hardly been bettered since.
Without wanting to get on the Eno-worship bandwaggon, it's interesting to note how subsequent world events have coloured this new hearing - the distinctly ethnic samples sound more chilling than ever (in this musical context).
What of the 'new' tracks? Well worth it, and an upbeat end that thankfully doesn't grate after the original closer 'Mountain of Needles'. Some great textures; a winsome alternative to 'Jezebel Spirit'; a beautiful guitar-only closer. The only dubious inclusion is a 39 second section of backing vocal from an earlier track - it's plain enough on the original and reminds me distinctly of ex-Goodie Bill Oddie (listen if you don't believe me!).
The thick booklet is most informative, and has lots of nice pics. But somehow they managed to miss off listing the sources of all those vocals - a remarkable oversight.
On the whole, a lovely repackaging of a supremely entertaining album.

Both Eno & Talking Heads have benefited from remastered reissues the last few years, so it's great news that the classic Eno/Byrne LP appears in this form shortly after 'Remain in Light' - which is a relative of this record. This reissue comes with a remastered sound, a clutch of bonus tracks (...likely to be of academic interest like the RIL bonus tracks) & a horrible new cover - why have they nixed the classic original? I hate it when people do that with reissues - as irritating as those Japan reissues where Sylvian got Orwellian with the past...The original cover is as great as Eno's cover for the original of Don DeLillo's 'White Noise'- the cover was partly the reason I bought it in the first place!!
The territory Byrne & Eno developed during 'Fear of Music' was the impetus for this album - two tracks on FOM 'I Zimbra' & 'Drugs' were key. The former veered off into ethnic directions (the 'Fourth World Music' coined by Jon Hassell) and world music rhythms; while the latter took some zoo-samples and layered a song around these. Eno & Byrne began work on 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts' shortly after FOM - most of the album was recorded in 1980, though released in 1981 on EG records after 'Remain in Light.' There are guests - Talking Head Chris Frantz (on 'Regiment'), Bill Laswell ('America is Waiting') & live Head band member Steve Scales ('Help Me, Somebody'). For the most part Byrne and Eno play everything here and dispense with vocals - choosing to use samples from public radio of preachers set to the zeitgeist of the Iranian revolution, the invasion of Afghanistan by Russia, the fall out of Cambodia, the rise of Reagan & the Iranian hostage crisis.

I'm biased and love this record on a couple of levels - the first being that its David Byrne with Brian Eno, together have created some of my favourite talking heads records. The second being I've read the book from which the title is derived.
This is quality with a splash of extra for an updated release.
