The AllMusic editors are recapping the year in recordings with well over a dozen posts in which they present their favorites within specific genres and styles. Right now, on the AllMusic Blog, they provide a list of their favorite various artist compilation reissues of 2010. These collections excavated unheard wonders that spanned from the disco underground of the late '70s to oddities from '60s Thailand, but once again there was an abundance of great discs from Ace, who added Van McCoy to their songwriters series, while offering collections of Phil Spector's early productions, more early songs by Randy Newman, and selections Sly Stone produced and played in the late '60s.
