Best album reissues of 2013

Here are my top reissues of 2013.

These titles are definitely worth shelling out the extra bucks for, even if you already own them on CD. Most are digitally remastered, with deluxe (or in some cases, super deluxe and box set) editions containing live performances, B-sides, remixes, rarities, etc., plus ample liner notes and photos.
