A big milestone for my musical journey during lockdown – week 30! Never thought I would still be typing this by October.
The whole week covering 12 to 16 October is totally devoted to the year 1992 which was the subject of a weekly Twitter poll hosted by Richard Shaw with the hashtag #3albums92.
I previously covered this on my previous post #3albums92 Twitter poll which you can read here. This blog just gives the breakdown of what I was listening to each day as I tried to come up with my top 3 albums for that year. Quite a task considering that this was one of my favourite years of music.
It would be easy to just go through your collection and single out what you thought was best. But the whole purpose of listening to a weeks worth of music is to see if something else might get your attention to make the top 3. I must admit before these CDs were played I had an idea what my top 3 were going to be but felt every album played this week deserves a chance to be heard.
