Re-issues as a catalyst for comeback

While your post makes way too much sense, Jack, I just thought I'd point out a few cases where a re-issue has resurrected the band who recorded it. Shooting Star, Signal, and FM (Canada) represent cases when re-issues tested the waters for whether or not there is an audience for new material. (FM would fit tidily into your "dated pomp... from 1979" file, Jack! :) Hopefully, Prophet and Bronz will follow suit.

Skagarack....watering dead trees is no substitute for planting new ones. And the labels shouldn't necessarily take the blame for "weak, generic" material. That responsibility lies in the artists making the music. Then again, for every weak Survivor clone (as you put it), there is an amazing band like Raine or Kharma on the roster...

By the way, you forgot CMC International, and how about One-Way Records? Better "re-issue" your last post with the appropriate revisions... ;)
