20 Recommended LP Reissues

I asked one of our favourite, always sharing, always exploring music happy customer,  Matchy (not his real name) to list his top 20 LP reissues. The criteria is no box set, nothing expensive, nothing rare but titles that has great content and really good to stellar sound quality. Also the vinyl should still be in print (ie. as of this article). Not long, he text me this list including 2 originals. So here it is, a tested, approved takeaway list should you be bored by the usual suspects like Kind of Blue, Take Five, Brothers In Arm… 

How come no metal, no blues or big symphonies, I again asked. It is because Matchy was feeling mellow lately. That means there is an opportunity for  20 more (part II?) when he is feeling hyped up 🙂
