Doug Mosurock Favorites, 2014
Is there an order to this? Not really; first thing in each grouping is the top tomato, and the rest are also favorites. Did I follow the instructions? Nope. 30 LPs, 20 EPs, 15 reissues/archival sets, seven live bands, even five exemplary records I missed the boat on last year. Too many to narrow it down, and yes, all of these are totally fantastic and must-owns. As ever, I encourage everyone to take a good, long look at everyone’s lists, use the Internet to discover the bands you haven’t heard, and as always, buy more music and support the musicians that make it.
