20 Best Reissues of 2014
20

Reissues are now, more and more, like airplane flights: an à la carte experience. Historical releases this year by Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young came in multiple iterations, with the level of bells, whistles and deep tracks varying according to price. The best scholarship of 2014 ran the same gamut, from monster boxes of encyclopedic detail (Chuck Berry, King Crimson) to single-disc primers on the Seeds' classic garage-rock 45s, Sly Stone's missing-link productions and David Bowie's taste in covers. In short, something for every taste and paycheck.
