Yahadanai... i second that point... giving also a big shout to African Brothers great return with their "Mysterious nature" 2LP/CD which for authentic roots lovers can be missed I think. In modern Roots give it to Yahadanai, in UK Roots to Kenny Knots "Gimme di Music" along with Lyrikal Benjie "Rastaman Style"...
On the Dancehall scene, double title for Gentleman & Capleton each giving a very very good album although lower in level than each ones earlier release that were both anthology pieces.

But altogether, if there should be only one I second bredrin Neeko in Yahadanai hailing up for being the refreshment, the new discovery... great album !

Not sure if I should have put a "none of the above" option. I should have made it 10 straight issues so we could get a definite result. Personally I went for Hudson but could easily have voted for either Aquarius Rock or the Bitty McLean instead.

I voted for the Gaz Mayall album despite the terrible sleeve notes and the mis-crediting of Teardrops.

Great great comp that has had more plays than anything else I've bought this year.

Nickbug, you took the words out of my mouth. I am the other person who has voted for the Gaz Mayall ska collection so far (hope some others will; it deserves more than 7% of the vote imho). Superb release so the sleevenotes can be forgiven. So come on folks, get voting. Over 500 members and only 27 votes.

Double LP of the Year
I too go for Studio One Funk. There are so many out of the way killer Studio 1 titles on this it's almost like having a new release.

Single LP of the Year
If the repress of 'Jucks Incorporation' (Part 1) with the extra tracks was released this year it would get my other vote.

Pity the Gaz one isn't on vinyl - or is it? I love the Trojan 10" from it.

No I don't think the Gaz's release is on vinyl Jackie, only the 10" as you noted.
