and

One compilation.

BLAK AND BLU

by Gary Clark Jr.

Great Rockin' debut from Austin gunslinger Gary Clark Jr. If you like Hendrix, Kravitz, Clapton, or all of the above.

WRECKING BALL

by Bruce Springsteen

Great, songs, great production, classic Bruce.  

Touching, heartfelt, inspiring and the last recording

from Clarence Clemmons.

PSYCHEDELIC PILL

by Neil Young with Crazy Horse

The long, long, long player. Classic jammin' doin’ what they do best. Some songs are over 10 minutes, some are over 20!

LONESOME DREAM

by Lord Huron

Debut record from Lord Huron.

Like an Americana Arcade Fire.  

Cool videos as well.

SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN • Original Soundtrack

by Rodriguez

Like a black Cat Stevens mixed with Donovon.

I had never heard of Rodriguez before.

And I have NOT seen the movie.

So the songs had to stand up on their own.

BANGA

by Patti Smith

One of the all time greats!

Great lyrics, great band with Lenny Kay and recorded at

Electric Ladyland in New York. What more do you want?!?

BOYS & GIRLS

by Alabama Shakes

Great voice, great band!

IT TAKES A THIEF.

by Thievery Corporation

Normally I wouldn't include a compilation on a Best of list

but, it's been a slim year for full length LP's.

#1 in my car right now!

BLUNDERBUSS

by Jack White

Jack White's debut after so many side projects.

Through and thru all the way Cool.

REBIRTH

by Jimmy Cliff

Classic Jimmy Cliff. 'nuff said.

CHANNEL ORANGE

by Frank Ocean

This didn't grab me right away, but due to it showing up on so many other Best of lists I gave it a 2nd, 3rd and 4th listen.

Like a modern day Curtis Mayfield/Marvin Gaye.

PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

by Poolside

Cool for a dinner party, before going out, or getting back and chilling. Great electronica cover of NY's Harvest Moon.

Every time I spin this at a party, someone will come up and ask, “Who is this?”, It’s Poolside.
