With newly spiffed up album releases to suit every taste, we're excited about this week's latest group of vinyl reissues (and a few CD reissues for good measure). The albums hitting our shelves this week include old favorites from Bright Eyes, a legendary Pink Floyd album, classic Aerosmith, some essential Stevie Nicks, expanded versions of releases from the Blind Boys of Alabama, and more Bon Jovi than you can shake a stick at.
Here's what's on our radar:
Two career-defining albums from Conor Oberst have been remastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig, and are now available individually in both CD and vinyl formats after coming packaged together as part of this year's earlier The Studio Albums 2000-2011 box set. Both albums have been featured in roundups of the Best Albums of the 2000s -- Lifted by Rolling Stone and Fevers & Mirrors by Pitchfork, who called it "Bright Eyes' defining LP."
