Festive 50

And so as we run down the clock on what has been for me personally, a strange and unexpected year which diagnosis’ aside, has been an excellent year for music. My only regret being that for the best part of the time, we’ve felt a little behind the curve always playing catch up with the reviews and for that we apologise, we will try harder next year I promise, I hope that those I have let down will fully appreciate that at times, matters were out of my hands. At this point I should also like to extend my thanks for all the support and kind words throughout the year, I feel most humbled and indeed touched by the concern and love, fear not, I’m not one to roll over and hopefully the imminent scans due in early January will indicate some kind of continued improvement or at least a holding at bay of the symptoms. All I know is that whatever fate has in store that I’ll do my damnedest to continue to litter your inbox with these badly written critiques. And so moving along, by way of a tribute of sorts, Christmas time for me was always highlighted by Mr Peel’s Festive 50 and so this year to satisfy our own nostalgic want, and I hope yours, we’ve compiled our own Festive 50, the chart being assembled by individual hits to various reviews. Okay not the most original idea, but what we can say is that in the days leading up to its compiling there was a certain amount of jostling in for places 41 – 50 with Pye Corner Audio, A Year in the Country and I am Voyager 1 all ultimately just missing the cut, as to the top two – just 4 views separated them while 6 views further back was third with a sizable drop to fourth. And with that I’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks and wish you all a wonderfully peaceful Christmas and New Year.
