Discoveries 2008

This is a list of a very special variety. If you read my previous post, you may have seen that out of the 500-some albums I got in 2008, only 200 were released in 2008. That leaves 300 other albums from various times and places. That leads me to this: my favorite discoveries of 2008:

Cat Stevens - Teaser and the Firecat (1971)
Colin Meloy - Sings Morrissey (2005)
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Deja Vu (1970)
Datarock - Datarock Datarock (2005)
The Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I (1999)
Eek-A-Mouse - Skidip (1982)

The Kinks - Something Else by the Kinks (1967)
Lou Reed - Berlin (1973)
