A-ha / Hunting High and Low & Scoundrel Days vinyl reissues
A-ha‘s 30th anniversary celebrations get properly underway with vinyl reissues of their first two albums. 2CD deluxe editions and a super deluxe of their debut to come later in 2015.

Great value two-CD Donna Summer set that is peppered with edits, remixes and extended versions to keep things interesting.
Jethro Tull / Aqualung – The 2014 Steven Wilson Remix (vinyl LP)
The 40th anniversary stereo remix of Jethro Tull‘s Aqualung is made available separately on vinyl, having previously only been available via the pricey box set. Single CD version also available.
Electronic vinyl reissue
New 180g vinyl edition of Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr’s Electronic debut. This uses the 2013 mastering.
Jah Wobble / Redux: Anthology 1978-2015
Six-CD Anthology that spans nearly forty years and features 92 tracks representing Jah Wobble in various guises, including his time in Public Image Limited.
Ultravox / Quartet (vinyl reissue)
Ultravox‘s sixth album (produced by George Martin) is reissued as limited edition 180g white vinyl, with initial copies also including a bonus seven-inch white vinyl single.
Bob Mould / Workbook 25
Omnivore’s Bob Mould reissue from last year wasn’t officially released in the UK, so Edsel have picked this up and are putting out their version this week.
Thomas Leer / From Sci-Fi to Barfly
With the Act Love & Hate compilation just around the corner this could be a good time to check out Thomas Leer‘s 2007 album. The Scot only made it available for download so this is its debut on CD.
Jethro Tull / Benefit – Steven Wilson Stereo Remix
Another Jethro Tull reissue. This is effectively disc one from the 2013 Collector’s Edition of Benefit, so you get the five bonus tracks as well, including US and UK single versions of Teacher.
