2012 lists worth keeping handy

Being inundated by “best of 2012” lists, but still a sucker for those lists?

Same here.

Therefore I developed the healthy skill of setting apart those ones that may contain hidden treasures.

I loved my university years (1988 – 1993) because of people like Luca, a liaison for music appasionatos.

Luca’s taste is impeccable, I am grateful to him for sharing some light on artists that I would probably never find.
