The Best of Echoes 2010 & Diliberto’s Best

The Best of Echoes 2010 Poll is LIVE!

We’ve plugged in the Best of Echoes 2010 Poll.  It’s been an interesting year  for music and we’d like to know what put a buzz in your ears from the Echoes soundscape.   You can pick your five fave Echoes albums and you ‘ll be entered a drawing to win a one year Echoes CD of the Month Club Membership, a one year Echoes On-Line Subscription or Dream Logic – The Echoes Living Room Concerts v.16.

We haven’t compiled our personal 25 Essential Echoes CDs yet, but I have compiled my Top Ten overall albums and songs for 2010.  Our Philadelphia affiliate, WXPN always requests my year end bests about a month before I’m ready, but it gets the thought process moving.  Since it’s my personal favorites, I don’t limit it to Echoes material but draw from all the music I listen to, especially with the songs list.   You can see my original list at WXPN, and while you’re there, you can vote in their poll which has a nice prize.  But since I change my mind all the time on these lists, I’ve already altered that one.  So here’s my list from this moment in time.

John Diliberto’s Top Ten Albums for 2010
1 Carbon Based Lifeforms – Interloper
2 Arcade Fire – The Suburbs
3 Portico Quartet – Isla
4 Robert Rich – Ylang
5 Ulrich Schnauss – Missing Deadlines
6 Hammock – Chasing After Shadows… Living With the Ghosts
7 Willie Nelson –  Country Music
8 Nakai/Eaton/Clipman – Dancing Into Silence

    I enjoy listening to your program on WUWF when I’m at home in Santa Rosa County. It’s not just the music that makes me tune in, though. Your voice is so soothing, and it’s obvious that you are passionate to share what you know about the artists and their work.
