Paul McCartney / Tug of War and Pipes of Peace reissues

Garbage / debut album box set
Garbage‘s 1995 debut reissued in two separate vinyl packages and a two-CD deluxe. Bizarrely demos and remixes are digital only.
The Sound of McAlmont & Butler reissued
A post-Suede Bernard Butler bounced back with the collaborative The Sound of McAlmont and Butler featuring the singles Yes and You Do. Three-disc and five-disc deluxe available.
Janet Jackson / Unbreakable
Janet Jackson returns with a new album Unbreakable. This limited edition is rather silly. It contains the same 17-tracks as the standard album but with ‘eyes closed’ artwork. Whatever will they think of next, a limited edition ‘finger up nose’ cover art?

Suede / Dog Man Star (Edsel classic)
There have been many expanded reissues of Suede‘s Dog Man Star, but the 12-track album stands alone as one of the best long-players of the 1990s. This ‘Edsel Classic’ version is simply a budget ‘album-only’ reissue but done with some style (see this post for pictures of similar sets).
