Top 10 Reissues of 2015
The Top 10 reissues of 2015 include plenty of familiar classic-rock favorites. From the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin and Bruce Springsteen, the remastered and repackaged LPs on the above list represent many of the artists during their peak periods.
We're long past the days when just a straight reissue of an old album passes off as something worth celebrating. So, most of the 10 records in this gallery include lots of extras to draw in longtime fans who've probably bought these LPs a half-dozen times since their original releases.
Whether it's the alternate takes of classic songs found on the Stones' expanded Sticky Fingers reissue and Bob Dylan's latest Bootleg Series box or the new versions of classic albums assembled on the Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac sets, the Top 10 reissues of 2015 take a specific period in time and break it down to the smallest details in meticulously crafted new collections.
The Ultimate Classic Rock staff voted on their favorite reissues of the past 12 months, we crunched the numbers and came up with 2015's Top 10 -- a sampling of classic rock's golden years updated for modern times. Not so surprisingly, all of these recordings remain timeless listens, even after all these years.
