What a long strange trip it’s been…

Another BIG thank you to JC, l’inventore dei 45 45s at 45, che ha pubblicato sul suo blog The Vinyl Villain un post di imbarazzante apprezzamento: http://www.thevinylvillain.blogspot.it/2012/12/45-45s-at-45-italian-style.html

La sua storica lista del 2008 si trova, per le posizioni dalla 11 alla 45 (ordine non cronologico), qui: http://thevinylvillain.blogspot.co.uk/2008/04/45-45s-at-45-number-11.html

…mentre i post delle prime 10 posizioni cominciano qui (e proseguono consecutivamente): http://thevinylvillain.blogspot.co.uk/2008/06/45-45s-at-45-number-10.html

E’ stato bello essere il n.2 di questo gioco… speriamo arrivi presto, da qualche parte nel mondo, il n.3…!

E poi, Merry Christmas… Qui ci vuole una B-side d’epoca.
