My tastes generally steer far away from the mainstream, so I always find it weird to list my top releases, knowing that I’m probably operating with a vastly different list than most folks do. With that said, here’s my Top 5 of Early 2021 list.
One of the best things about the ongoing vinyl revival is that there are a ton of great records seeing quality reissues or box sets. There are quite a few really good ones out recently that deserve your attention.
Sometimes you hit the jackpot when you have a record store. Used albums come in all the time, but occasionally the motherlode walks in the door and that’s what happened recently. Along with a myriad of other titles, there are some all time classics setting on the shelves that really need a good home.
Nashville gave up on country music years ago and now just churns out twangy pop music that has more akin to boy band music than country, folk or bluegrass music. Personally, I can’t stand what is considered country music now, but there are artists out there that still do make real country music and it’s fantastic.
