Fave Reissues Of The Last Few Years - PART 3

A Listmania! list by Mark Barry "Mark Barry" (London)
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
The list author says: "Working in a secondhand record shop in London, as you can imagine, you come across mountains of CDs - and being a voracious music fiend - I've bought and loved hundreds of re-issues over the last few years.

But some just stand head and shoulders above all the rest. Many of these titles are well known, but others are obscure (I've reviewed most of them in detail).

Here's some suggestions and why they're recommended..."
Passion
1.  Passion by Peter Gabriel
The list author says:
  "A double-album and single CD when originally issued in 1989, this Realworld 2002 remaster is breathtaking - and if ever there was a desert island album you need to discover, then this is it... His masterpiece."

Songs for Beginners
2.  Songs for Beginners by Graham Nash
The list author says:
  "His 1971 debut album on Atlantic given a stunning 2008 remaster. Disc 1 is the album (with all-star cast) and a slightly superfluous to requirements DVD as Disc 2. Features DVD-Audio mix as well. See review.."

Rock Rock Rock
10.  Rock Rock Rock by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "Criminally forgotten 1st Chess LP with The Moonglows, Chuck Berry & The Flamingos providing its 12 tracks & they bolstered up by 3 more from the film. It was the 1st "Rock 'n' Roll" soundtrack and although it's short, it's a lovely evocative listen. Erick Labson remaster. See separate review and a list of the 7 titles in Universal's 50th Anniversary series..."

Duchess of Coolsville: An Anthology
18.  Duchess of Coolsville: An Anthology by Rickie Lee Jones
The list author says:
  "In the absence of any of her early Warner Brothers albums being remastered, this 3CD 2005 Rhino overhaul will do nicely. Fantastic to hear her "Rickie Lee Jones", "Pirates" and "Magazine" album tracks finally given good quality sound."

20.  Average White Band by Average White Band
The list author says:
  "Their wonderful 1974 self-titled 'white' album (with "Pick Up The Pieces") now given a 2CD 2004 remaster by Columbia in Europe. It's housed in a gatefold book sleeve and features the equally brill and entirely unreleased 10-track "Clover Sessions” on Disc 2. Hard to find, but both discs are essential to soul/rock lovers."

Second Winter: Legacy Edition
25.  Second Winter: Legacy Edition by Johnny Winter
The list author says:
  "Released in late 1969 (USA on Columbia) and early 1970 (UK on CBS) as a 3-sided 2LP set, I've always adored this bluesy/rockin’ mish mash. This 2004 2CD Legacy Edition remasters that double on Disc 1 adding two top outtakes (both cover versions). Disc 2 outdoes Disc 1 with a blistering unreleased 1970 live set from the Royal Albert Hall (which features an early "Frankenstein")."

Lovely 24-page colour booklet, Jeff Willens remasters. And cheap too. Check out the joy of "Two Can Have A Party"."

Blade Runner Trilogy: 25th Anniversary [3 CD]
28.  Blade Runner Trilogy: 25th Anniversary [3 CD] by Vangelis
The list author says:
  "2007 remaster of the 1994 "Blade Runner" soundtrack CD (film itself was in 1982). Disc 2 has Previously Unreleased Instrumentals and Disc 3 has new "interpretations" by Vangelis. Some loved this, others hated it. Personally I found the 1994 CD to be weedy sounding, so this new "Paris" remaster was welcome news."

Love You Live
29.  Love You Live by The Rolling Stones
The list author says:
  "Their 1977 stadium/clubs live double given a 2009 2CD Stephen Marcussen remaster. Side 3 was recorded at The El Morcambo Club in Toronto and has hard rocking blues. The packaging is bog standard (garish Andy Warhol images), but the sound quality is brilliant. A largely forgotten live album that deserves another look...especially with the improved sound."

Look Out! We Got Soul...Sweet Soul Music: 10 Scorching Classics from 1961-1970
30.  Look Out! We Got Soul...Sweet Soul Music: 10 Scorching Classics from 1961-1970 by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "In 2008 and 2009 Bear Family of Germany issued 10 CD compilations called "Sweet Soul Music" - a year to each (1961 to 1970). Stunning sound quality, average of 80-page booklets - genius stuff. This is the 10-track budget-priced sampler for the series. I've reviewed it and all 10 comps.
Best compilations ever made??"
