2014 was the year of the DJ for me. I DJed more places, more often than ever before and I loved it. It is the best justification of all for buying more records. Here is a list, in roughly reverse chronological order, of 120 LPs I bought last year. Almost all of these were released in the last two years. I bought more vinyl than this, an awful lot of old country, reggae, soul, and african LPs, but who’s counting past a hundred or so anyway? Don’t say there isn’t any good music coming out these days.
