Top 50 new releases found in 2002     HOME


This year saw a lot of very good compilations (20 in this list) and reissues (8) and also some releases were cd-only. The six movie-related entries this year are 49, 40, 38, 36, 29 and 28. I haven't included the promo-cd's I received the last few months, because the albums are not yet released (the evil thingies, big john bates, ...), So maybe next year they'll be on my hot hot fave fifty list next to the new Cramps album "Fiends from dope island" due out Spring 2003. This Top50 was broadcasted live in two parts on December 22 and 29 on Radio Centraal 103,9 FM during UNGAWA. To see the playlists click on "playlist" on top and go to the December 2002 listings.
