At last, the end of a month-long road, and the long-awaited (by some) finale to my little venture. I have to say that I feel JP would have approved of this poll, despite the fact that none of his beloved African music was voted for. Each and every stage has provided its own surprises, and this top 10 is no exception to the rule.
I would like to thank everybody who has been involved at some stage in the production: the ones who voted, the ones who sent me the sessions I didn’t have, and the ones who downloaded and listened: the first podcast has now gone into treble download figures, which in my books, being double the figure of the BOTBOTB podcast of last year, spells a resounding success. A full list of the top 50 will make its way here by next week, but until then, if you want to know which reggae act made the top 10, which band had TWO entries, or just want to be astounded by the sheer variety of the acts that you claim were the best sessions you ever heard, download and listen at your leisure.

And by the way, Adam, you can breathe easier now…AC/DC didn’t make number one. That’s the only clue you get, mind….
