Hello friends. Its been another year, and while perhaps no one will miss 2009, it of course had a great deal of fantastic music.

Best of 2007 podcast

Welcome again for that holiday tradition, this year, everything pretty much is a reissue of stuff from 1971, so who knows what the music world is all about. Play this on your new ipod/iphone though, I dumped .mp3 for .m4p and put in artwork, and all that jazz. It rolls in at about 50 meg, so consider this a early christmas present. Cheers! 10.

Best record of 2005 – Sufjan Stevens Illinois

Best record of 2004 – Ariel Pink The Doldrums

Tough to pick one, Animal Collective was a great revelation, mash-ups like The Grey Album and Go Home Productions put a great spin on old tunes, Joana Molina Tres Cosias was fantastic, and the concert of the year. But nothing is dearer to my heart than the sonic craziness of Ariel Pink – The Doldrums

Best record of 2003 – bonnie prince billy Master and Everyone

Bonnie Prince BIlly is a tough one to pin down, certainly prolific and somewhat dodgy, but Master and Everyone gets my vote for best of

Best record of 2002 – Horace Andy meets Nagoo Morris

Its a joy to see the fine reissues of previously impossible to find gems that gushed out of Jamaica in the 74-80 period. But what about the gems produced on these shores? In Brooklyn for example with Bullwackie Barnes? Thanks to the Rhythm and Sound German guys we have a chance to reawaken a great period in our own history. Showcases like Horace Andy meets Nagoo Morris top my list [&hellip
