Frank Sinatra / London (box set)
Four disc Frank Sinatra box highlights live performances at famous venues in London over four decades and includes a DVD with a previously unreleased film of a 1962 concert at the Royal Festival Hall.
George Harrison / The Dark Horse Years 1976-1992
A “limited manufacturing re-run” of the original 2004 George Harrison box set, this eight-disc collection picks up where the Apple Years box left off, compiling the studio albums from 1976 to 1987, including the hit album Cloud Nine. Live in Japan from 1992 is also here along with a DVD. This has just dropped in price significantly on Amazon UK so might be worth grabbing.
Aretha Franklin / Aretha (2CD reissue)
Reissue of Aretha Franklin’s 1986 album is primarily of interest because the bonus CD includes all the remixes of her George Michael duet I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me), three of which are previously unreleased on CD. 1989 follow-up Through The Storm is also reissued.
Sparks / Kimono My House (2LP Vinyl)
Double album reissue of Sparks’ 1974 album includes a bonus LP of previously unreleased demo recordings. Fans should check out the still available deal on their Music For Amnesiacs box set.
The Moody Blues / The Magnificent Moodies (50th anniversary 2CD deluxe)
This welcome focus on the early Denny Laine era (1964-66) of The Moody Blues sees their 1965 debut album newly remastered from original analogue sources and massively expanded with singles, radio sessions and 29 previously unreleased tracks, including nine that were recorded for a never-released second album.

Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor created this superb soundtrack with songs from the likes of Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, The Cowboy Junkies edited together in a superior sound collage. This Music On Vinyl 2LP reissue was available on red vinyl if you were quick.
Pixies / Doolittle 25 (2LP vinyl)
This double vinyl version of the Pixies Doolittle reissue arrives slightly later than the three-CD version. Interestingly, this omits the original album completely (although it is available via download code) and focuses on the bonus material including B-sides, Peel Sessions and the whole album in demo form.
