I was curious about what albums everyone really enjoyed from here this year. I really felt like I was introduced to a lot of artists that I'd never heard of, and ended up exploring a few of them much further. So, I thought I'd do a High Fidelity style question for the end of 2018. What were the top five albums you bought from VMP this year? Mine were: 1. Toots and the Maytals "Sweet and Dandy" 2. James Booker "The Lost Paramount Tapes" (wouldn't mind more James Booker as an exclusive maybe) 3. Gary Chandler "Outlook" 4. Lafayette Afro Rock Band "Soul Makousa" (put me on an Afrobeat track for few months) 5. Novos Baianos "Acabou Chorare" (Is it just me, or does the song "Um Bilhete Pra Didi" remind anyone else of a Brazilian AC/DC when the electric guitar picks up). At any rate, I'm interested in hearing what you guys really got into. Cheers!
