This Week's Interesting Music Releases (November 23rd, 2009)

As the year winds down, the number of new releases dwindles but reissues and box sets are definitely gaining momentum. A handful of box sets are the highlights of this week's music release list.

Miles Davis: The Complete Columbia Album Collection 71-disc (70 CDs and 1 DVD) dwarfs even the recently released 16-disc Beatles Stereo Box Set. This collection combines 52 of Davis's albums (with bonus tracks) along with a 250-page booklet and a 1967 live DVD.

Other box sets in store this week include:

Pixies: Minotaur, a 17-CD box set that includes all 5 studio albums of the band on CD, Blu-ray audio and DVD audio, as well as the band's 1991 Brixton performance on DVD and Blu-ray.

Kraftwerk: The Catalogue, an 8-CD box set that includes remastered editions of the band's eight studio albums.

Alan Lomax in Haiti, a 10-CD box set which collects the folk music of the country.

Reissues this week include four remastered Neil Young albums on vinyl (After the Gold Rush, : Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Harvest, and Neil Young).
