Well, I know this ain’t a big deal if you are MCA or Sony Records or some other declining giant, but this year, while we were not paying any attention, we passed the 100 releases mark, we are currently at 105. The first forty-six of those were during what I refer to as Mach 1 – basically 1983 to 1991. Fifty-nine of those are Mach II, basically since August 2009. Not too bad for a little art project that has got out of hand. Of course you can go to our AotM (Album of the Month) page if you want to see most of the Mach II releases. If you are curious about the old stuff, go to our Discogs page – it is all there (Sort on the date column to get them to line up by release date – the numbers are a little goofy).
So who made all this racket? I thought it would be most appropriate to list them here. So in order of appearance, here we go:
