Well, where the hell did that go? Yep, somehow it’s the middle of November and 2008 only has about 6 weeks left to go. With that in mind I’ve been thinking about putting together a Best of 2008 list but because I’ve spent so much of this year buying & listening to records that came out years, if not decades ago, I’m worried that it might be a bit short.
Certainly, releases by The Streets, Paul Weller, Estelle, José James, Erykah Badu, J.A.M and Jamie Lidell have meant that I’ll look back on 2008 as a good year for music, whilst tracks by artists such as Wylie, Wicked Devil & Dizzee Rascal have made me wish that I could still go to a club without wondering if there’s anywhere I could sit down with a nice glass of wine. So, to make up for this rather poor record of buying new releases, I thought that I would invite suggestions for other albums or singles that deserve to be on my list. I’ll then try to get hold of any records suggested and listen to them before January 2009.
