WE KNOW, WE KNOW. It’s a dilemma. Can that new plush versh of The Velvet Underground’s 1968 classic White Light/White Heat really justify your reinvestment, unheard recordings notwithstanding? And how about those Beatles US albums? Historically important – here’s that Yesterday & Today sleeve pic: both versions – but, you know, weird. I mean, what’s with a Rubber Soul that starts with I’ve Just Seen A Face, not Drive My Car? [Apologies to our ‘more senior’ American readers, for whom this is the ‘proper’ Rubber Soul – natch!]
And what about those connoisseur classics – vintage acts whose greatness is just waiting to be dusted off and rediscovered. Are Jackson C. Frank and Brigitte Fontaine this year’s Sixto Rodriguez?
All these questions answered, and more, in the form of MOJO’s definitive list of the best reissues of the past three months, January-March 2014. See below!
