The CD Reissue Wish List blog has been discontinued as of October 2015, as it had served its initial purpose. Please read some posts below about my current active blogs, and other resources I maintain where you can easily find more albums that are in dire need of a CD reissue.

Lethe - s/t. 1981 M.M.P.
Following my post yesterday on Mirror, here's Lethe, the second incarnation of the band.
Lethe's album starts off rather inconspicuously with a classically oriented oboe, acoustic guitar and piano piece. But, just as Mirror before them, the band launches into a sophisticated, but highly melodic progressive rock form. And while Side 1 is good, side 2 is an absolute clinic on how to combine complexity and yet still maintain a strong melodic backbone. This is the album that Camel never made after "Moonmadness". Astounding album really.
