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 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 ( for his usual stellar job of package design.
