Top Reissues of the past 10 years

I love new music! But, let’s face it. They don’t make it like they used to. Also, some of those original pressings are just stupid hard to find. In the spirit of saving record collectors thousands of dollars and in a nod to 10 yrs existence of this blog, please enjoy my favorite (vinyl) reissues of the past 10 years. I am numbering these, but they aren’t really in a specific order, just as I think of them. Some of these I actually own the OG copy, however so I’m kinda saying its a historical list, a list of records you should own either the OG or the reissue.
