John Wendland

There were so many releases in 2013 and I know I only heard a small fraction of them. In my relatively small overall sampling of 2013 album releases, I found a whole lot to like, and it was difficult to narrow them down to a list of 10.

This first edition of "Beginning to See the Light" launches what I hope will be a semi-regular series of things I have heard, read or saw that have sent me down a whole myriad of different musical journeys and probably have cost me a lot of time and money in the process. Who cares? I'm better off for it.

I thought 2012 was a really strong year for new music releases and I found the same to be true for reissues and compilations.

Listed below are 15 of my favorite compilations and/or reissues from 2011. So much to choose from. I believe any of the following will provide hours of rewarding listening.
