An MP3 CDR of the year's reissues.

Once More With Feeling

To qualify for this playlist, a song had to have been originally made or released at least five years ago—that is, in 1999 or prior—and reissued in 2004. Some are tracks I already knew well, but for the most part they’re newer discoveries. As with the 2004 playlist, one track per artist, followed in parentheses by the reissuing label and year of original release and/or recording. The paragraphs represent a single CD’s worth of material; there are seven total.
