Just when we thought the vaults must, at long last, be exhausted, we find more extraordinary music that’s never before seen the light of day – blinding revelations that force us to reconsider received rock’n’roll history. Like the great tracks that never made it onto the final Led Zeppelin album – until now. But in a rich quarter for reissues, the latest and most surprising tranches of Zep remasters weren’t the only coups. Overlooked music by pioneer singer-songwriter Jackson C. Frank; a reminder of the consistent awesomeness of The Isley Brothers; the scrappy, early-’80s singles on which Alan McGee’s Creation empire was built; Bert Jansch on stage at his best: music we’re already wondering how we lived without.
