Firstly, I would simply like to say how much I appreciate the hard-working labels that put out consistent quality and invest the appropriate time and care for their reissues.

Darker Than Black ... I'm looking at you ... THANKS for what you do. I love the Ancient Records CDs that you are making available.

Svart's work on the Demilich reissue ... what a fantastic job.

I would like to know, hopefully from some of the labels themselves, what aspect of the reissue process is most rewarding, and also the most challenging?

There are some reissues I feel like I would fund myself at this point, if it could only be done.

What are some reissues on your 'most wanted' list?

Challenging: summoning the motivation to tie funds on an old release instead of something fresh

Rewarding: Easier money than first press, assuming the demand is there

The idea of reissuing something in a revised or updated packaging never crossed my mind but you are right. Good point.

The above practice also has to do with two other issues very commonly:

1) Rights to the original art can't be obtained.
2) The original art is lost.

That has happened in a fair number of cases.

Oh and 3) Sometimes the bands grow up and get really embarrassed about art they chose, art they let someone else choose, art they sloppily put together in five seconds just to get the album out.

These things really do happen in a good number of cases.
