A slight bias towards reissues this week, as we've been digging deep into a ten-CD box set of Philip Glass' greatest hits and, since they turned up yesterday, neat new reissues of the first six Creedence Clearwater Revival albums.

The Robert Wyatt thing is a single, by the way, which seems to have been driven by Bertrand Burgalat (Wyatt and Alfie contribute lyrics); it’s pretty cheesy French dance-pop, but this remix by Hot Chip on the flip is much stronger. And Terakaft are a feisty and reverberant spin-off from Tinariwen, that I can highly recommend.

But here’s the full list. As John Fogerty has just pointed out, keep on chooglin’. . .

2 Jolie Holland – The Living And The Dead (Anti-)

3 The Dead C – Secret Earth (Ba Da Bing)

4 Lucinda Williams – Little Honey (Lost Highway)

5 Appaloosa – The Day (We Fell In Love) (Kitsuné)

6 Solange – Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams (Polydor)

7 Various Artists – Interstellar Overdrive (free with this month’s Uncut, plug plug, etc etc)

8 Harry Taussig – Fate Is Only Once (Tompkins Square)

9 Philip Glass – Glassbox Disc Four: Glassworks/Analog (Nonesuch)

10 The Grateful Dead – Rocking The Cradle: Egypt 1978 (Rhino)

11 Terakaft – Akh Issudar (IRL)

12 Gang Gang Dance – Saint Dymphna (Warp)

13 Creedence Clearwater Revival – Green River (Fantasy)

14 Philip Glass – Glassbox Disc Nine: Symphonies Nos 3 & 8 (Nonesuch)
