The 2016 Vinylero Awards

Vinyl Confessions Presents: The 2nd Annual Vinylero Awards!
The show was broadcast live on House of Prog Saturday March 18th 2017

Introduction:
Vinyl Confessions is a music and talk show the Vinylereo’s are Mike The Waxman Maffei and myself Nick The Mad Platter Katona. Each one of us has chosen our 10 best releases for 2016 for a total of 20 LPs. Neither of us knew what the other DJ had picked till we were live we took turns revealing our top ten.

The Criteria for LP/Album of the Year!
A. The music must have been released in 2016
B. The release must be an LP format release
C. LP must be a full length according to the RIAA
D. No compilations
E. No live albums unless unless the live album is all new music.

How do we judge the albums?
A. Quality of the Recording
B. Quality of the Production
C. Artwork
D. Most important of all is, how often we play the album on our shows and in our personal lives.

For the show encore we played one side of each of our top three albums of the year.

The Waxman and myself would like to thank all the musicians that write, record, produce and release music each year for us to be able to play and help promote via our shows. The reality is this… there are no losers when it comes to the thousands of releases each year, when it comes to music there is something for everyone.
