    AllMusic Loves 2019 Reissues

    -


    There may have been a bunch of great albums released over the course of 2019 — check out our AllMusic Loves 2019 list for proof — but this past year has also seen a ton of great older music reissued in new editions. Some of these reissues are indeed splashy super deluxe editions of beloved albums, such as an edition of Prince’s 1999 loaded with unreleased material from his legendary vaults, a box set rendition of the Beatles’ Abbey Road, and a series of expansions from Stereolab, whose 1990s catalog has now been overhauled. Elsewhere, there were weighty box sets covering Bakersfield country, the early years of Nat “King” Cole, the career of Ronnie Lane and the golden era of the Go-Betweens, excavations of unheard music by John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy, not to mention a revival of the little-heard new wave band Roger C. Reale & Rue Morgue. Then there were plenty of compilations focusing on specific scenes, sounds and eras: Japanese new wave music from the ’80s, junkshop glam and proto-metal pub rock from the ’70s, the birth of Scottish indie music, and British synth pop all were chronicled, as was a myth-puncturing complete document of 1969’s Woodstock festival as well. All of these, plus many other exceptional titles, gave us many reasons to love the reissues of 2019.
