Reissue Updates: The Latest & Greatest 2010

Sometimes it can be hard keeping up with all the different reissues being......Reissued! so heres a list of some of the best.

With the closure of so many of the great reissue labels over the last few years like Blood & Fire, Makasound, Greensleeves, Motion, Tabou, Hot Pot etc it seems that only Pressure Sounds is left to continue releasing music in the album format along with some recent CD/LP reissues on the Dug Out label.
Heartbeat seems to be dead or dormant, Soul Jazz seem to have stopped releasing reggae albums & Trojan seem happy to reissue the same tracks over & over again.

Luckily it seems that since the demise of the CD/LP releases,  a plethora of 7" 10" 12" repress's have sprung up to take there place.
