Home-grown artists love to play it again

U2 are not the only Irish act to reissue choice albums from their back catalogue.

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.

And Paul Brady fans got the pleasure of being able to buy his 1978 debut all over again a few months ago when Welcome Here Kind Stranger was re-issued.
