The Frames mark their 20th anniversary this year by re-releasing extended versions of their two best-known albums, 1996's Fitzcaraldo and 1999's Dance the Devil.

Even small-time Irish acts are at it. Miriam Ingram's Trampoline album came out in 2006 and a year later a version called Trampolonica -- featuring electronic remixes of her songs -- was released.

Last year, Patrick Kelleher's debut album was released; this year a version featuring other artists reinterpreting the same songs came out.
