2018 Retrospective

How quickly the years go by. Today is my retrospective on the many albums we sampled together for the first time in 2018. Along our mostly alphabetical journey, I'll call out my favourite gold star releases [GS] and honourable mentions [HM]. But every album on this list would be a great contender for your collection of traditional music from the British Isles and beyond.

G'Day Colin - maybe it's just me - but in Firefox, the listen live button throws several errors and doesn't play. Fortunately, Safari works

Hi Neal, glad you're tuned in! Thanks for the report. The Windows Firefox here in the studio is working OK, but I will test a mac later.
