THE VAULTS HAVE enjoyed a good raid over the last three months, as MOJO’s favourite reissues from 2016’s second quarter span acts of scholarly archaeology to spring cleans for old favourites. There’s even a good old-fashioned best-of.
Following on from our selections from the first three months of the year, MOJO’s Editors have rounded up our favourite reissues, remasters and compilations released in April, May and June of this year, including packages from The Beach Boys, Ryan Adams, Metallica, My Morning Jacket and more.
You’ll note that for now our list is in alphabetical order, not ranked according to genius just yet (we’ll do that at the end of the year), though please do contact us on Facebook or via Twitter (@MOJOmagazine) about anything we’ve missed out that you feel would enrich the listening lives of fellow MOJO readers.
