Lazy-i Best of 2006 Compilation
Here it is again, the
annual year-end "best of" compilation. This one counts as Vol.
12, and while I usually give away a hundred to friends, family, business
acquaintances -- people on the scene and in the know -- I'm only giving
away around 60 this year. As I said in the liner notes, with the advent
of digital download, comp CDs are becoming a thing of the past (or so
it seems). Regardless, there will still be a Vol. 13 next year.
As always, the comp is a recap
of the best stuff I had a chance to hear throughout the year as part of
my work with Lazy-i.com and The Reader. There are even a few guilty pleasures
thrown in for good measure. Thanks as always goes out to artist/genius
Donovan Beery (eleven19.com)
for his usual stellar
job of package design.
