Twelve albums that left a lasting impression

A meme on Facebook asked me to name 12 albums that left a lasting impression. I wanted to do more than just give folks a list, so decided to write a little about each one and what it means to me.

I've sort of cheated on a couple of selections, by combining two releases into one where it feels right to me. The list is also in no particular order of influence. I've also thrown in Spotify links for your convenience.



Kind of self-explanatory, don't you think?

SMWS Hammock Drams

SMWS 50.79 - Tickly, zesty and exoticThe outturn for September is a bit bigger than usual, and nicely diverse. It also promises to be expensive for many people!

Cask, wise, we seem to have it all - first and refill bourbon, several sherried drams, and a Chenin Blanc!

A Life

A Life

There's a scene in Death: The High Cost of Living, where Death takes a baby. As she walks with it into the beyond, the baby complains that it's not fair, and Death replies that the baby got what everyone gets: a life.
