Over at Jimmy Page's Sweater Vest, there is a link to a great article about remixes of songs done by the original artist for some reason or other. Here's a sample:
What got redone: What hasn't gotten redone?
Why this is wrong: In 1978, Kiss remade 1974's "Strutter" with disco hi-hats, and they haven't looked back since. It has now been five years since they've even trifled with writing new songs, preferring instead to trot out ever-repurposed versions of 30-year-old classics. 1988's Smashes, Thrashes & Hits featured completely rerecorded versions of all their best songs, and a version of "Beth" featuring then-drummer Eric Carr replacing Peter Criss' vocals on the group's highest-charting hit, a song Criss wrote. Last year Kiss re-re-re-infinity-rerecorded most of the same songs with an Australian orchestra. Perhaps in this coming year they will send out robots to tour so they can save money on per diems.
