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’. . .

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)
