Thank you, and goodnight...

Last one of the year, then, and my last one for Uncut, since I’ll be leaving the magazine today. Housekeeping: I’ve updated my 2017 albums list with a few late discoveries; and a few more new 2018 things have snuck in here, especially the next Prana Crafter tape. Also my final Uncut will be on sale mid-January, and I can promise that those of you who’ve stuck with this playlist may well be interested in the free CD Tom’s compiled to go with it; I’m very proud of it, as I have been of most things we’ve done in my time here.

Thanks for all your support over such a long time, and all my best wishes for the season. You can probably guess how this is going to end…
