Albums By The Year: 1965

Welcome back to this special retrospective music-posting feature. The gimmick is simple — each week, you post your favorite 25 (or whatever) albums of a given year. We are now moving backwards until we run out of either albums or years.

Don’t know about anyone else, but i for one am sure running out of years. That’s why after next week, i will be stepping down as host of this feature. It will continue without me, though i don’t know how or for how long. All i ask is that you show my successor the same gracious courtesy you have shown me. See you here next week for my last sign-off.
