Be­tween heaps of over­priced reissues of LPs still clog­ging dis­count bins are some true gems. Robyn’s much-loved Body Talk Vol. 1 gets pressed on vinyl for the first time ever. Five of Missy El­liott’s ground­break­ing al­bums ( Supa Dupa Fly, Da Real World, Miss E… So Ad­dic­tive, the Cook­book and Un­der Con­struc­tion) are back on wax, as are all eight of Ri­hanna’s stu­dio al­bums. Trent Reznor is of­fer­ing “de­fin­i­tive ver­sions” of Nine Inch Nails’ Bro­ken, The Down­ward Spi­ral and triple-LP be­he­moth The Frag­ile, while Brian Eno’s four “rock” al­bums ( Here Come the Warm Jets, Tak­ing Tiger Moun­tain (By Strat­egy), An­other Green World and Be­fore and Af­ter Sci­ence) are back as limited edition half-speed-master dou­ble-LPs. Nineties in­die he­roes He­lium, fronted by Ex Hex’s Mary Ti­mony, see their en­tire cat­a­logue back in print for the first time in years; so are the first four al­bums from Tim Kin­sella’s ex­per­i­men­tal emo crew Joan of Arc. Cana­dian pop punk fans can re­live their glory days with Sum 41’ s in­fec­tious de­but, Half Hour of Power. Be­fore he re­made him­self as a Nashville-lov­ing cow­boy, Daniel Ro­mano fronted Wel­land, ON punks At­tack in Black; their de­but, Mar­riage, is back for its tenth an­niver­sary. And Van­cou­ver’s sem­i­nal proto-grunge leg­ends Slow are reis­su­ing their de­but Against the Glass for the first time since its orig­i­nal 1986 re­lease. Fea­tur­ing bonus tracks, liner notes and pho­tos, in­clud­ing shots from the band’s in­fa­mous ap­pear­ance at Expo 86, this is a must-have for any CanRock fan.
