** Notable example: Music/{{Madonna}}'s first best of, ''Music/TheImmaculateCollection'', is a best of InNameOnly: all the songs on there are remixes of her hits. No song was spared; some songs ("Like A Prayer" and "Express Yourself") even had different backing music! What The Hell?

** Like Madonna, Muisc/{{KISS}}' first greatest hits album, Double Platinum, only contains remixed versions instead of either album or single versions, except for Strutter 78, a re-recorded version of Strutter from 1974.

* Music/TrishaYearwood's Greatest Hits album ''[=PrizeFighter=]'' had all of the songs re-recorded, not only because she was on another label (RCA) than the one on which she had her big hits (MCA), but also because she wanted to remove some "dated" production styles such as the reverb on "Walkaway Joe" but otherwise keep the recording close to the original.

* Music/PearlJam did this for their re-release of ''Music/TenAlbum''. It was released so that both the original version was included and Brendan O'Brien's new mixes. These weren't very different, but brought forth the instruments in many songs and allowed Eddie Vedder speaking as the bum in "Even Flow" being heard at all.

** Steve Hoffman recently remastered all of Music/TheDoors' albums for 'Audio Fidelity'. They use the original mixes (see above), but rather than completely ignore the remixes, a few tracks from each album were doubled up; once as a part of the original album, and again as bonus tracks in their remixed from! To put that into context, ''any'' sort of bonus track is a rarity amongst audiophile releases.

Added DiffLines:

* Some compilation albums, due to the label being unable to secure the rights to the original masters, have the artists re-record the song as closely to the original as possible.

* Music/RedHotChiliPeppers' "Greatest Hits" contains a remix of Music/{{Californication}} instead of the single version. It doesn't differ hugely, but probably would piss off people buying the compilation for the track. It also has a terrible remix of "Higher Ground" which may be because Warner just beefed up the original EMI CD version rather than using the mastertapes. The version of "My Friends "included is a nice surprise because it is the original unedited version of the song which had beforehand only appeared on bootlegs. The versions of the songs from the album "Californication" also appear newly mastered, sounding much better than the [[LoudnessWar infamously mastered album]] they originally appeared on.

* Music/TheDoors' 6 main albums were remixed for the bands 40th Anniversary, and were appropriately called the '40th Anniversary Mixes'. The albums also had bonus tracks, including alternate takes and unreleased songs. General response has been average.
* When Music/AyumiHamasaki released A COMPLETE in 2008, her biggest hit M suddenly lacked its guitar solo, which had been replaced by synths. Aside from that the song was exactly the same, slightly remastered maybe.
* Three of Music/OzzyOsbourne's albums have been remixed:
** The '02 reissues of 'Blizzard Of Ozz' and 'Diary Of A Madman' had the original drums and bass parts replaced. This was so Ozzy could avoid paying royalties to Lee Kerslake (Drums) and Bob Daisley (Bass), who sued him for unpaid royalties back in '86. Many fans were ... 'displeased'.
** Bark at the Moon was also remixed in 2002. Some guitar parts are missing. [[FlatWhat What?]]
* Music/JohnLennon's entire catalog has been remixed, along with some bonus tracks on each album, and in some cases different artwork was used. That was all supervised by Music/YokoOno. Her reputation, as well as rumors that the mixes were brickwalled, means that this was never gonna please fans.
** Update: In 2010, all of John Lennon's albums were remastered (by the same team who remastered the Beatles in '09), and have used the original mixes, which are now the standard again!

* ''Music/PetSounds'' by Music/TheBeachBoys was originally released in Mono. It has been remixed several times:
** A new stereo mix was made in 1997, originally as a part of 'The Pet Sounds Sessions'. It was later released separately in 1999.
** The album was re-released in 2001 with a new stereo mix, the original mono mix and a bonus track. This remix is based on the one in 1997, but with a few differences; certain vocal parts that were missing from the original multi-tracks were 'extracted' from the original mono mix and integrated them into the stereo mixes.
** A new mono mix was made in 2006 for the 40th Anniversary Edition of Pet Sounds (CD + DVD). The DVD also contains stereo and surround sound mixes.
* Two of Music/TheBeatles records (Help! and Rubber Soul) were remixed in the 1987 by George Martin. He did this because he considers the original stereo mixes of these albums experimental, and [[GratuitousPanning not very good]]. He had intended to remix the first four albums as well, but was not given enough time to by EMI. When Music/TheBeatles' catalog was remastered in 2009, the 1987 George Martin remixes were used for the stereo version of the albums; the original stereo mixes showed up as 'bonuses' on the mono discs.
* Music/IggyPop remixed 'Music/RawPower' by his old band The Stooges in 1997. This was particularly divisive - Raw Power was originally supposed to sound over-loud, crunchy, and ugly, [[BrokenBase and a lot of people think Iggy's remixes of the album are much more like how the songs were supposed to sound.]] [[LoudnessWar Others, including two of Iggy's bandmates criticised the mix.]]
** The brickwalling is so bad that no one remembers how muffled and awful the original released mix was. It sounds like heaven in comparison. The original tapes were themselves poorly recorded by Iggy (all the instruments were on one channel and the vocals on the other; Music/DavidBowie said that the only real thing he could do was "push the faders up and down a lot"), rumor has it that cocaine is to blame. It's sad, since the songs are [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome the best The Stooges ever did]].
** Thankfully, when the original mix was issued on the Master Edition of ''Raw Power'' in 2010, they remastered it and improved it considerably.
** The 1997 remix got remastered for 2012 Record Store Day and it's also a surprise improvement while being free of clipping.

* Starting in 2009, Music/KingCrimson's albums are being reissued, with new 5.1 and stereo mixes where possible (some of the original multitrack recordings, such as for "The Devil's Triangle", are missing).
** Also, similar to the Ozzy Osbourne albums mentioned above, the compilation ''Frame by Frame: The Essential King Crimson'' had a remix of "Cadence and Cascade" with Gordon Haskell's vocal part replaced by a new part sung by Adrian Belew and a remix of "Bolero - The Peacock's Tale" with Haskell's bass part replaced by a new part played by Tony Levin, due to a royalty dispute with Haskell (which has since been resolved). However, these remixes were ''not'' used on reissues of the original albums (the ''Frame by Frame'' mix of "Bolero" is included as a bonus track on the newest reissue of Lizard).

* Music/{{Ayreon}}, who rerecorded a good chunk of the instruments for Actual Fantasy Revisited, due to tape loss, getting Gore to drum, thinking he could do it better, and an epic 5.1 release, and again to get Dawn of A Million Souls on the Rock Band Network.
* The Music/FlamingLips' ''The Soft Bulletin'' is mainly produced by Dave Fridmann, but as potential singles, "Race for the Prize" and "Waitin' for a Superman" were given somewhat different mixes by Peter Mokran, who mostly mixes or engineers for pop and R & B artists like R. Kelly. They couldn't decide which versions of the songs should go on the album, and ultimately ended up including both versions of both songs by tacking on Fridmann's mixes of "Race For The Prize" and Mokran's mix of "Waiting For A Superman" at the end of the track listing. Oddly, the Mokran version of "Buggin'" is listed as a "remix" on the packaging despite the fact that the original mix was only released on ''The Soft Bulletin 5.1'' in 2006 - more than 16 years later. Also, the band made "stereo mixes" of a few songs from ''Zaireeka'' (an album consisting of four discs meant to be played simultaneously) and used them as ''The Soft Bulletin'' b-sides.
* Music/PorcupineTree's records ''Voyage 34'' (1992), ''Up the Downstair'' (1993), and ''The Sky Moves Sideways'' (1995) were remixed in 2003-2005, in order to replace the original drum tracks (made with a drum machine) with new ones played on real drums. Also, ''Stupid Dream'' (1999) and ''Lightbulb Sun'' (2000) had new 5.1and stereo mixes released in 2006/2008.
* Music/ThePolice GreatestHitsAlbum ''Message In A Bottle: The Classics'' includes a "New Classic Rock Mix" of "Message In A Bottle" alongside the original: the most noticeable difference in the remix is that the guitars are a bit louder and the bass is a bit quieter.
* A huge portion of the EMI Capitol Collectors' Series, Legends of Rock and Roll Series and Legendary Masters Series compilations from the early 1990s are a TropeMaker of this phenomenon as much of these remixes were done to create stereo mixes of songs from the multitracks that were previously released only in mono or rechanneled stereo.

While the 2010 Special Edition of ''Music/StationToStation'' went with the original analogue master, those who sprung for the Deluxe Edition also got a DVD with two new stereo mixes (one 5.1) and an additional CD of the master from the album's first CD release in 1985.

''Tres Hombres'' and ''Fandango!'' had their original mixes restored for individual re-releases - if you buy a new cd copy of any of the other early albums, chances are you're getting the 1987 remixed version.
