2010 Year End List Mentions: Reissues/Vault Music

These are records that show up in various year-end lists, except new releases. The focus is on new releases, so the following are incidental pickups. Those in blue are ones I have in more/less final form. Those in green I have as stripped down promos or don't have but have managed to hear somehow (borrowed copies, downloads, Rhapsody). The numbers in {} are the number of mentions. An asterisk at the end of the label credit indicates that the record is all previously unreleased material (considered a new record by some, historical by others).

Note: File has been frozen as of Jan. 24, 2011.

Sub Lists

Some breakdowns by genre (initially just jazz). In many cases these are incomplete, partly because this was an added feature, partly because they're hard to verify.
