There are so many new concepts going on in country music reissues. Two disc deluxe editions of classic albums. Box sets of an entire artist’s catalog, with the CD’s in miniature LP replica sleeves. Digital issues of concert recordings. (Wolfgang’s Vault is a thing. Check it out.) Two albums on one CD, or carefully curated collections of singles. Bear Family box sets that give you everything. Even 180 gram vinyl records are coming out at a rapid clip.
So I’m wondering what your wish list is. What reissues would you rush out to buy or download on day one?
Here’s my top five list:
- Dolly Parton, The Complete RCA Albums Collection: 1968-1986
- Willie Nelson, Deluxe Editions of Nineties Classics: Across the Borderline, Spirit, Teatro
- Shania Twain, The Complete International Remix Collection: 1995-2006
- Kay T. Oslin, Clean Your Own Tables: The Early Years
- Trisha Yearwood, Rarities and Unreleased Tracks: 1992-2012
