New Music: My Best Of 2010 List

It is always a challenge to put together a "Best Of" list. My list is usually driven by money; albeit, no one sends me these discs free and I have to put out my hard earned cash for the tunes. Given the nature of working for my money, I am careful. I only buy albums that I know I will enjoy. Long gone are the days of random purchases and taking chances. Therefore, you will notice that many of my favorite artists show up on the list.

There are plenty of albums that I have not had the opportunity to purchase yet, and I look forward to reading other people's lists as the new year begins. If you care to suggest albums that I have overlooked and/or would like to send me copies, contact me at amcrhpfan@hotmail.com.
