Top 45 Albums of 2014

‘Tis year end and that means best of 2014 lists time. Earlier Adam posted his Top 45 albums of the year (I’ll post a link to his list at the bottom of the page). So, here’s my Top 45 (I think). I’m sure there are going to be songs come up on my MP3 mix over the next week or so and I’ll be kicking myself for not including that album in the mix.

Like Adam, I’m simply going to list these records, you can find more info on them on social media…☮~Mark ♫♬’
