Reprises are common in musical theatre, where earlier songs are often repeated, usually with slightly changed lyrics to reflect the development of the story.

 TAXI A&R Interview: Rob Cavallo, Reprise Records
You get your record played because it's a good record; because you know that the content of that record is going to be something that is going to work.
If that record doesn't respond, if the kids aren't buying it, if the kids don't call in and say they really like it, and if it doesn't research or whatever it is they do to figure out what radio knows, you're not going to have a hit, no matter what.
The only thing that brings kids and music fans into the stores to actually buy a record is that they are interested in what the band is saying, and doing, and playing, and what that's about.

I've made mental and physical notes, gone back to excavate past records for their similarities and differences, discussed and argued the many facets of this monumental work.
And I've come to the conclusion (based on my scientific methods of analysis) that Mastodon just might be the greatest living American metal band and that they have given us the best record thus far for 2006, and certainly of their career.
Longtime fans will ferociously argue that either of their previous proper full lengths is far superior for a laundry list of worthwhile and specious reasons.

 DJ Soul Sister > New Orleans > The Meters
Unfortunately, they are so great, their old records are now considered hip and trendy and many new listeners either feel that they were all New Orleans had to offer in terms of funk music, or that any band that doesn't sound just like them is no good.
The sound of the Reprise records was different, yet still funky and heralded by critics and fans alike.
I think that's why I prefer the Reprise records over the Josie stuff, for sentimental reasons, though I think both bodies of work are wonderful.

Klein's knack for spotting progressive talent nabbed him an eight-year gig as a vice president at Sire during the heyday of Madonna and the period of k.d.

In the UK at this time, Reprise albums were pressed and distributed by Pye Records, but they apparently would not have anything to do with this unmusical freaky racket.
By the time of Burnt Weeny Sandwich, Reprise had got a new deal with CBS (who also released the Straight albums from 1969 / early 1970 - the GTOs' Permanent Damage, Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica etc.) and the label copy that read "Manufactured by Pye Records" was fled out.

The last ten odd years have been a chaotic time for the band, with absences on recordings, first by Lindsey Buckingham, then Stevie Nicks, then both.
If the DVD-A folks continue to offer simultaneous releases of both formats (as will be the case with Steely Dan's "Everything Must Go" on June 10) this will be a big boost for the format.
I only hope Lindsey's and Stevie's conjunctive Goodbye songs which close the recording are only lyrical license and not goodbye to their fans.
