I apologise if this thread has come up before, but it’s hard to search for terms like ‘CD’ here.
Anway… this was sparked by the fact I just managed to pick up a copy of the great Neil Young record On The Beach, which has only finally made it onto the 5" shiny format almost thirty years after being released, and almost twenty years after CD became the format of choice for rock music.
I was wondering if anyone could nominate important, forgotten or otherwise valuable records which have yet to see the light of day on CD (officially - there’s probably quite a few that are only on bootleg CD). With everything from the Godz records for ESP-disk to the back catalogue of seemingly everyone else making it onto remastered, repackaged discs (worthless bonus cuts optional), I’d like to hear what the record companies have overlooked.
My nomination is for the mass of DIY/post-punk tapes from the early 80’s, which I’d really like to hear (check the last couple of issues of Ugly Things magazine for details). From Danny and the Dressmakers to the Homosexuals - I want 'em all!
How about yours?
