Favorite Reissues, Compilations and Ep's of 2012

I had planned on getting this one up earlier in the week, but time has not permitted this until today.  After putting so much time into my "Favorite Albums of 2012" list with barely any comments or feedback, I have decided to scale back this post to feature a numbered list of my favorite compilations, reissues, box sets and ep's from 2012 without descriptions. Most of these records will speak for themselves, but if you want to know anything further about them, drop me a line in the comments.
