#albumsoftheyear playlists

I’ve been enjoying the weekly album of the year and decade polls, run by the amazing Richard Shaw (@richards7370 on twitter). The list so far is here. We’ve reached 600 plus people taking part. They’re all collected under one hashtag each week e.g #3albums74.

It’s great way to delve back into your collection, music chat and banter, and stretch into some new albums as well. I’ve discovered albums like Nina Simone’s Wild is the wind, which I can’t believe I’ve missed all these years.

For some of the weeks I’ve taken part I’ve compiled Spotify playlists with selected tracks from that year. I’ve linked them below and some other playlists that have been shared by twitter folk.
