Hollywood, California – August 10, 2009 – Put the needle in the groove! Capitol/EMI’s high quality “From The Capitol Vaults” U.S. vinyl campaign continues November 3 with the limited edition, 180-gram vinyl release of 11 classic, standout albums from EMI Music’s celebrated catalog.

Capitol/EMI launched its “From The Capitol Vaults” campaign on September 2, 2008 with 13 classic titles, all previously out-of-print on vinyl.

So if I already have the original LP and the 1991 CD of these, (with bonus tracks) what makes these different and worth buying?

"So if I already have the original LP and the 1991 CD of these, (with bonus tracks) what makes these different and worth buying?"

This is the same feeling I got while looking through the racks at a local record store today.  They had a brand new reissue pressing of a Chicago LP for $30.99, or I could settle for a nice original pressing for $1.95. 

It is neat to see the two LPs back in print though...

Modern repressing usually are with much thicker vinyl than the original release.

Very nice. I would love to see Endless Harmony, Ultimate Xmas, and Hawthrone on vinyl. Not to mention the two boxsets.

Hadn't thought of Megadeth in quite a while. Ew.

I'm probably going to check out the Sunflower reissue first and if I like it consider buying a few more.

I think the only advantage of this would be to replace a well-worn copy (like my mom's Summer Days LP) with a new, less scratchy copy. Personally I'd be afraid to listen to a new Sunflower without Desper's approval!!! Grin
