Jason Warburg's Deluxe Edition

by The DV Staff

In an era when the big labels—those few still in existence, that is—are increasingly reliant on recycling their own catalogues by issuing “deluxe” editions of classic albums featuring newly unearthed obscurities as bonus tracks, it seems only fitting that we follow suit.

Before Jason Warburg joined the Daily Vault staff in October 1997, he cut his teeth as a music reviewer for a semi-weekly arts-and-entertainment tabloid called On The Town in Sacramento, California. While a handful of those early reviews have been republished on the Daily Vault over the intervening years, most had not, until this feature launched.

From October 5, 2013 through June 28, 2014, every Saturday featured a review from Jason’s own personal vault, freshly scrubbed and updated for modern times. Many of these filled in holes in our DV database of more than 8,000 reviews; others simply added to the range of opinions represented on this site about notable albums like Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride, as everything old becomes new again—again.
