The Best of 2014

Written by Stan Cocheo on . Posted in CLTLL

The Best of 2014 to me is that it’s over. It ended for too many and that’s the worst. Some great musicians, music lovers and those influenced by the music were lost this year. So many that I can’t even begin to compile a list as I’ll miss someone. I miss them all, even if I did not know them personally or very well, I do feel their influence on the music scene. So that’s my worst of 2014, it’s that so many have died.

Now, as far as music goes? What’s the best of? Nationally & Internationally:

1. David Crosby – Croz

2. Ian Anderson – Homo Erraticus

3. Pink Floyd – The Endless River

4. The Slambovian Circus of Dreams – A Box of Everything.

5. Lunatic Soul – Walking on a Flashlight Beam

6.The Ghost of a Sabre Tooth Tiger – Midnight Sun

7. Beck – Morning Phase

8. Yes – Heaven and Earth

9. Michael Stanley – The Job


My opinion is that outside of these it was a mostly bland year musically, until you get down to the local level. So, here’s my best of list from our friends and neighbors in the Charlotte region:

1. Hostile Witness – The Tribute To Chris Piegler
2. Grey Revell’s Roman Candles, The Happy Infinite,Volumes 1, 2 & 3.

3. Halden Vang – How About Now

4. Shannon Lee – Crystal Butterfly

5. Deep Sky – 7

6. Michael Tracy – Hopeful [The Atlanta Sessions EP]

7. Time Sawyer – Disguise The Limits

8. Bloody Hammers – Under Satan’s Sun

9. Avalon Steel – Ascension
