And the awards for the best reissues go to:
Various Artists, Teenage Shutdown Series (Crypt Records). Lost garage-rock gems from unknown '60s bands.
Charlie Feathers, Get with It: Essential Recordings (Revenant). Beautifully packaged and expertly mastered compendium of Feathers' rockabilly and country recordings, including commercial cuts, alternate takes and demos. Essential indeed.
