I love to buy records. I’m the guy who’d much rather purchase the album on wax instead of adding the album to my iPod or computer, but these reissues seem to stir an inner debate with my bank account. Does the purist in me stick with the album the way it was originally recorded and presented, or do I want all of the new bells and whistles? The new art work, the remixes, and alternate recordings? It all seems like somewhat of a cash grab. I have a copy of Houses Of The Holy that I bought for $5.00 at a garage sale. The “Super Deluxe Edition” box set is $139.99. And that settles that.
