Year End Series

Updated January 17, 2017

After the completion of the Decade series in 1992, I compiled an annual "Best Of The Year"
tape/disc beginning in 1993. Each tape/disc contained approximately 20 tracks
of my personal favorites of the past 12 months.
Beginning in 1998, 24 top tracks of the year became the standard.
Beginning in 2006, all entries were created on digital files.
Listed below is a track listing of each entry in the "Year End" series.
