    Glenn Christense Foremost Beatles expert... on my block

    My most played artists of 2017 are probably the same as my most played artists of 1967, with a few exceptions .

  4. Eleventh Earl of Mar

    Eleventh Earl of Mar Somehow got them all this far.

    Location:

    REM - 497 plays (first year I got into their albums)
    The Beatles - 404 plays (got into them this year actually)
    Genesis - 332 plays (no surprise...)
    Talk Talk - 250 plays
    Kate Bush - 240 plays (new to me this year too)

    Really a case I'm moving away from prog year after year - only one pure prog band and two art rock groups which is only a good thing. I love a ton of obscure prog bands but knowing I haven't shoved myself into a genre is good for sure. Genesis would be higher if bootlegs counted though, I listen to the live boots half as much as the studio tracks even.

    Runner ups are

    Ultravox
    OMD
    Renaissance
    Strawbs (an achievement since I have two albums by them lol)
    The Enid

    So... still prog but lots of synth pop and 80s stuff, hope next year gives a different list.

    I have no way of determining a specific number or even saying for sure who tops the list, but I'm gonna guess my top 5 is:

    Guided by Voices (I've been binge-listening to their two superb 2017 studio albums and revisiting the "classic era" Matador stuff, which I had been burned out on for a long time)
    U2 (in anticipation of their wonderful new studio album I spent a lot of time listening to all of their previous albums, including all the live and "deluxe bonus outtake" stuff I have)
    Samiam (listened to nothing but Samiam in the car for most of the year; my work commute was far less painful than usual this year)
    The National (was a casual fan for a long time, but this year I became a fanatic)
    My Morning Jacket (went on a MMJ bender a few months ago; it turned my frown upside down)

    Definitely Miles Davis. I probably cycled through the existing 1960 European Tour recordings a couple times. But if you're buying the upcoming Bootleg Series release, you're getting the cream.

    I'd guess my most played is probably Melanie de Biasio, with three really nice records I've been playing constantly all year, No Deal from 2013 (bought the vinyl earlier this year), Blackened Cities EP from last year, and the new Lilies. Yea, she would be hard to top for number of plays, at least on the turntable.

    Maybe Broadcast too, have been pretty fixated with their first three records for most of the year.

    And Virginia Wing too, their Forward Constant Motion was one of my big favorites last year, and has continued to get a lot of plays this year, along with the great Measures of Joy debut, which I really came to love this year, and the Rhonda EP, and the new Tomorrow's Gift with XAM Duo has been in near constant rotation for a couple weeks, including for the second time today. So yea, big Virginia Wing year for me.

    Based on listening to all three records with the Red Elastic Band, or just the latest? Listening to Michael Head records constantly isn't a bad habit to fall into at all, there's been times when The Magical World of The Strands is all I really needed for days on end :)

    The new ones with TREB, thats the only new stuff this year for me, oh and The Olde Worlde but that was bit of a let down.

    Spent the year with usual suspects, Kinks, Fred Neil, Matthew Sweet, Jason Falkner, XTC, Velvets etc
