More or less. In some kind of vagueish order for the first quarter then much of a muchness after. I'll do a relevant 8tracks for it too. Large Hearted Boy has the definitive list of end of year lists.
The Good Life -- Justin Townes Earle
Rattlin' Bones -- Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson
Gurrumul -- Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu
Virtual Landslide -- Pete Molinari (will talk about later)
Just a Little Lovin' -- Shelby Lynne
One Kind Favour -- BB King
Little Honey -- Lucinda Williams
Crossing the Field -- Jenny Scheinman
Trouble in Mind -- Hayes Carll
Harps and Angels -- Randy Newman
Waylon Forever -- Waylon Jennings (last recordings, classic songs, produced by son Shooter)
Same Old Man -- John Hiatt
Venus on Earth -- Dengue Fever (Cambodian-Californian psychadelic south east Asian surf rock)
All is Yes -- The Blessing
Como Now: The Voices of Panola County, MS -- Various (acapella gospel from the Daptone label)
Backwoods Barbie -- Dolly Parton
Recovery -- Loudon Wainwright III
Honky Tonks and Cheap Hotels -- Whitey Morgan and the 78s (outlaw country)
The C.P.T Theorem -- Greydon Square
Recapturing the Banjo -- Otis Taylor
Modern Hymns -- Darrell Scott
Seeing Things -- Jakob Dylan (it grew on me very slowly)
Honey Songs -- Jim Lauderdale
Akh Issudar -- Terakaft (Tourareg "desert rock")
Umalali -- The Garifuna Women's Collective (Afro-Belizean)
Mother Earth! Father Sky! -- Huun-Huur-Tu (alt.tuvan Like many people I find the whole throat singing thing pretty fascinating without actually wanting to listen to it while nursing a Strongbow out on the balcony at a summer's dusk. This one I would. Very jaunty! Turkic bluegrass! And they have a girl singer who breaks up the throaty stuff.)
Additional list: some more 2008 jazz I liked in addition to the Jenny Scheinman and The Blessing above.
Treat Me Gently -- Dale Barlow, George Coleman, Mark Fitzgibbon, Sam Anning This is Australian. John Shand just happened to review it in the Herald last week, and it just happened to be on eMusic and it just happened to have seven tracks and I just happened to have seven credits left so I got it. And I liked it a lot.
De Cuba y de Panamá -- Billy Cobham and Asere
The Coalition of the Willing -- Bobby Previte
Roll With It -- Corey Christiansen
This is a jazzy, funky, rocky one. No country because my country Chrissie songs are in a format not supported by 8 tracks so I'll do a twangy one when I've done some conversion.
Here or here:
White Christmas -- Bobby Timmons
You're a Mean One Mr Grinch -- Aimee Mann
Christmas is Coming -- John Denver and the Muppets
Do You Hear What I Hear -- Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra
Stone Soul Christmas -- Binky Gripite & The Dee-Kays
A Christmas Duel -- Cyndi Lauper and the Hives (a bit NSF kiddies)

Jingle Bells -- Ed Calle, Arturo Sandoval and Jim Gasior

The Oxford American music issue is out. Always worth it, if you can find it here. If you can. tell me where. If not, or until you do, there are some free articles on this here website.
As Zoe snarkily pointed out in comments, now I have these tickets all I have to do now is not forget the show is on. True, I have only really done that once this year but I have already committed to two different parties next Saturday night so such muck ups are never far from happening. So, I made a list of things I am doing so I can obsessively check it every day for the next two months to reassure myself.
