Episode 178: Best of 2015 – the best of the rest, part 1

April 19, 2016 at 10:09 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 178th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. The show is also available via Mixcloud here and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This latest show is a return to my review of the musical year of 2015 – you’ve heard my countdown of my 31 favourite albums of last year, but now here’s a chance to hear the best of the rest – some great albums, EPs, singles & tracks that didn’t make the top 31 but still deserve to be heard. We have a feature album, ‘John Barleycorn’ by The John Renbourn Group and you’ll hear three tracks from that as we reflect on the great talents of John Renbourn who sadly died last year, plus you can expect a typically eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
