Over the next three Fridays, ‘Spillin’ The Beans will be looking back at various things I have liked and listened to as part of my soundtrack to 2017. Obviously, this won’t be the only stuff I’ve listened to, because that would be silly, but it will be things that were released this year and cover a variety of genres. It isn’t really a review of the year and none of the tracks in the playlists will be ones that I’ve nominated for the Festive ‘Spill Ones, Twos and Threes, but some of the artists may well be featured both here and on those lists too.
Leaving aside the actual events of 2017, which, it has to be said, were generally pretty awful at a global level, musically it has been pretty varied, which some excellent music from a wide variety of sources.
Hopefully, there will be something for everyone. The first playlist is here.
Feel free to comment. I know that I have ignored a lot of things that others will have found more worthwhile, but hey, these are MY lists.
