personally, I would have loved to see a Thrill Me Up or a This Gun's for Hire reissue before this one (and New York Fever which Steve said will probably be next...) But either way, everything pre- DLTBGYD is classic and historically important, and I'm excited to get my hands on all of these upcoming reissues.
