Dag Bøgeberg, ROCK
The Del Moroccos: "Blue Black Hair", møkkete rock’n’roll og garasjestinkende rhythm’n’blues som visker ut grensene mellom 60-talls soul og tidlig Link Wray.
Various: "Virginia Rocks!", The History of Rockabilly in the Commonwealth, en samling Rune Halland mener burde fåes på blå resept. Enig!
Deke Dickerson: "King Of The Whole Wide World", tøff og moderne rockabilly, old time hillbilly, Jerry-Lee rock’n’roll, bluegrass, rein country and western, Bakersfield-country og rock’n’roll

The Seatsniffers: "Turbulence", de belgiske rootsrock-kongenes mest gjennomførte og forseggjorte plate til nå, elleve knallbra låter
Various: "Just Around Bakersfield", 34-spors samling med undertittel "Rock Bop Country", innspillinger fra 50-tallet, i tillegg til country sorterer mye under reinspikka rockabilly
Levon Helm: "Electric Dirt", essensen fra The Band er samlet i denne hederskaren som i sitt 69. år ga ut det beste ROOTSrockalbumet på lange tider. Har fulgt meg i hele år.
