On the Right Side of 2023

 Apologies for the delay in posting, but I had a few technical issues.  It was another great year for music, with Al Green's sublime cover of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" being a personal highlight.  I'd also especially recommend the John Cale, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Lana Del Rey albums. 

As always, I only included artists who weren't on the two previous years' compilations (unless they were singing backup on another artist's song).  Also, all of the previous year end compilations are also available (200920102011201220132014201520162017, 2018201920202021, 2022).

Hope everyone has a great 2024!!
