Archival releases by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Bob Seger and Tom Petty made Rolling Stone's list of the "10 Best Reissues of 2018."
The Beatles - 50th Anniversary White Album: "Three CDs of studio rehearsals and outtakes further explore the innovative, if divisive, energy of The Beatles’ most eclectic album."
Bob Dylan - More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series, Volume 14: "Dylan’s elliptically confessional 1975 classic, Blood on the Tracks...[on] six CDs devoted to the New York sessions in September 1974 at which he initially completed that record -- until he decided to re-cut five tracks in Minneapolis. (They are here too.)... We know how the story ends. This is how he got there."
Bob Seger - Heavy Music: The Cameo Recordings 1966–1967: "In the late '60s, before he ascended to heartland-Springsteen fame, Seger was Detroit’s Jagger-Richards, scoring regional smashes with raw, thrilling originals ('East Side Story,' 'Heavy Music') fusing Rolling Stones–style R&B with Motown-style songwriting and Midwest factory-life attitude. Half a century, these 10 A and B sides from Seger’s teen-beat era -- including exuberant pastiches of James Brown and Bob Dylan -- are still among his greatest hits."
Tom Petty - An American Treasure: "These four CDs are the late rocker’s career in deep cuts... Issued just a year after his death, this set is a life lived in full, more than you knew."
And on Rolling Stone's list of the "50 Best Songs of 2018," Paul McCartney came in at number-eight with "Come On to Me" off of his last release, Egypt Station.
