Before I get into my 2012 Favorites List for real, there are some preliminaries I need to deal with.
First, I want to give a shout-out to a few of the records that I had hoped would make the top 100, but which to my surprise just didn’t make the cut.
In no order:
- Replacements – Let It be
- Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited
- Alison Krauss & Union Station – Every Time You Say Goodbye
- Buena Vista Social Club – Buena Vista Social Club
- Digable Planets – Reachin
- The Sundays – Reading, Writing and Arithmetic
- David Bowie – Hunky Dory
- Sam Prekop – Who’s Your New Professor
- Rogue Wave – Out Of The Shadow
- Sunny Day Real Estate – Diary
All fine records. Definitely in my Favorites list. But the Top 100 was just out of reach for them, this time around.
And now the boring technical stuff…
