Reissue Of The Year
All bands of a certain vintage need to take note: we simply won't accept pointless and lacklustre reissues any more.
That means no more substandard remasters. No more re-releasing of an old album with just one or two bonus tracks.
We have become spoiled in the past couple of years with some lovingly produced reissues which give fans the complete picture of their favourite albums and bands and this year's shortlist for the Reissue Of The Year is simply spectacular.
Have a look at the shortlist below and then vote at the following link.
