*On John Denver's first 2 Greatest Hits album, he re-recorded any song that was not a major hit, and in the case of the first volume of Greatest Hits from 1973, the re-recordings are often much preferred by many fans over the originals. Only the 3rd volume of Greatest Hits consisted of 100% original recordings. The original recordings that appear on the first 2 volumes of Greatest Hits were the major hits.

* In 1987, Music/ZZTop released a BoxedSet titled ''Six Pack'', featuring not-remixes of six of their first seven albums[[note]]''Degüello'' was not included[[/note]] - The band opted to remix the songs and add drum machines and occasional guitar effects, with the intention of making their early work sound more in line with their more commercially successful 80's material. Fans of their more straight blues-rock 70's sound were not happy. ''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, unless you buy "The Complete Studio Albums" boxed set on Rhino which consist of all original mixes of everything.

* 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 and some of the re-recordings even include updated for the time arrangements. Examples of this include Gordon Lightfoot's 1975 best seller "Gord's Gold" which features half re-recorded United Artists material and half original Reprise material, and Donovan's best selling "Greatest Hits" from 1969 which included updated for the time re-recordings of his Pye/Hickory hits "Catch The Wind" and "Colours," until the 1999 remastered and expanded reissue which reverts to the original Pye/Hickory recordings of those 2 tracks.

* The Warner Bros. CD issues of Peter, Paul & Mary's 1960s catalog is remixed from the multitracks by Lee Herschberg and Peter Yarrow to make the music sound more "current" for the time with added reverb, etc. in 1989. The "Very Best Of" compilation and the "Carry It On" boxed set on Rhino revert to the original mixes and audiophile labels have issued some of their albums on SACD using the original mixes.
* Gordon Lightfoot's 1975 best seller "Gord's Gold" which features half re-recorded United Artists material (such as Canadian Railroad Trilogy, Early Morning Rain, etc.) as not only does UA/Universal still own the 60s catalog, the sound of the 60s material didn't match the 70s catalog in style, and half original Reprise material including "If You Read My Mind," "Sundown," "Rainy Day People," "Carefree Highway" among other tracks. The 1988 compilation "Gord's Gold Volume 2" contains the bulk of the material in re-recorded form, including "The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald," with the 4 original recordings of classic recordings being "Make Way (For the Lady)," "Ghosts Of Cape Horn," Baby Step Back," and "It's Worth Believin'." The "Songbook" boxed set and the "Complete Greatest Hits" compilations on Rhino revert to 100% originals including the UA material being licensed from EMI.
* Donovan's best selling "Greatest Hits" from 1969 included updated for the time re-recordings of his Pye/Hickory hits "Catch The Wind" and "Colours," until the 1999 remastered and expanded reissue which reverts to the original Pye/Hickory recordings of those 2 tracks being licensed from Sanctuary and adds 4 more songs that charted after the compilation originally came out. This compilation is also notable for including the full length "Sunshine Superman" in stereo at 4:32 while the original mono single, which appears on the "Sunshine Superman" album, is 3:15.

* {{Feeder}}'s "Shatter" was remixed for single release to be more radio friendly, less distorted and have wider panning.



* Music/SimpleMinds were fond of these remixes in TheEighties. Not so much anymore, though.

* Music/SimpleMinds were fond of these remixes in TheEighties. Not so much anymore, though.Last used on 'War Babies' from 1998, it made a comeback a decade later in the 'Graffiti Soul' and 'Lostboy' periods. To satisfy fan interest the band usually releases the remixes on iTunes.
* TheB52s "6060-842" was remixed for single release to make Fred Schneider's vocals more prominent in the mix than they are on the album version (this is immediately noticeable in the intro). When releasing the album on CD, Island accidentally included this version on the album instead of the album version. The original mix is only available on that on the Warner CD.
** In 1990, the band remixed "Party Mix" and "Mesopotamia" as they weren't happy with the original mixes. Whilst Party Mix is a simple case of bringing up the percussion, 'Mesopotamia' is a more pronounced case of this trope. There is a notable difference in 'Deep Sleep', as they turned off some of the delay. Elsewhere there are a significant amount of panning differences (notably, the harmony vocals will be panned to different channels to hear them separately and Ricky Wilson's guitar jumps to different channels). They were planning to do this with other albums but the project fell through. Fred Schneider did however remix his own first album 'Fred Schneider And The Shake Society' around the same time.

** 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.
