OTB and AYSO

Now that the Top 50 countdown has been completed and my fingers have regained mobility I have decided what I would like to do with this blog from now on.

OTB

Anytime the above acronym is used in the subject line of a post it denotes the content will be a discussion of albums and artists that were ON THE BUBBLE of the Top 50 countdown. Some will be albums that, quite frankly, should have been included in the countdown while others were excluded for one reason or another. It will also be an opportunity to discuss in more detail other great releases from the artists that were included in the countdown.

AYSO

When the above acronym is employed it will be to denote ALBUMS YOU SHOULD OWN be probably don’t. These are independent, long forgotten, limited released but phenomenal albums. These are from artists that never quite broke through, were self-released or simply poorly marketed. My hope is to introduce or, in some cases, remind the reader about some wonderful hidden gems. Many were also “ahead of their time” and were not widely available at their release and are possibly more popular now than when they were first released.

I hope the reader enjoys this new direction…especially all those Steve Scott fans  🙂

    Why were the following artists omitted from the top 50?

    Johnny Cash
    P.O.D.
    Evanescence

    All three (well, maybe not Evanescence) had major impacts on the industry and the culture.

    I was wondering the same thing about Johnny Cash.
