Thanks going out to Joel Hartse of Times-Standard for the Best albums of 2005 article. I was late (as usual) reading the e-mail Joel sent but was able to make the deadline. Joel spelled my name wrong but he did list 6 of my picks (he only wanted 5) so it was a fair trade-off. Everybody gets the spelling wrong. In fact most people are a little freaked by my name so I have taken to using CJ.
I usually make a list of my favorite LPs of the year so I had been thinking about them. I try to pick at least 10 to 15 albums so look for that list soon. I wish more folks had taken Joel up on his open offer to list their favorites. Maybe next year I can help pimp it, if I read my e-mail in time. Stay dry. CJ
