Last year, on Tue Feb 15, 2005 at 9:33 pm I wrote:
…What I'll do is run a monthly poll from now until the end of the year, with the album receiving the most votes each month going forward to the final polls at the end of this year (or very early 2006 Wink ).

Given that releases will happen each month until November, that will give us 11 monthly winners - the next 4 albums that didn't win a monthly poll, but got the most votes will go forward to the final 3 polls (each of 5 albums - I'll draw these 5 randomly) to give everyone a chance to vote for up to 3 favourites for the year.

The 3 winners will go into the last poll to see what the top 3 Trojan releases for 2005 were. Cool Cool Cool
Here’s a reminder of the monthly winners:
Smile January - Trojan Roots And Culture Box Set 54.84% 17
Smile February - Trojan Ska Rarities Box Set 75.86% 22
Smile March - Dennis Brown - Money In My Pocket 45.16% 14
Smile April - Trojan Dancehall Roots Box Set 41.94% 13
Smile May - Trojan Reggae For Kids Box Set 42.42% 14
Smile June - Trojan Legends Box Set 37.93% 11
Smile July - Trojan Dub Rarities Box Set 48.39% 15
Smile August - Trojan Mod Reggae Vol. 2 Box Set 39.47% 15
Smile September - Trojan Lovers Box Set 80.65% 25
Smile October -Trojan Roots Reggae Box Set 50.00% 16
Smile November - Trojan Rocksteady Rarities Box Set 63.64% (21)

The 4 non-winners that received the most votes were as follows:
Smile Trojan Eighties Box Set (April) 11 votes
Smile Hold Me Tight - Lynn Tait Anthology 65-73 (August) also 11 votes
Smile John Holt - The Definitive Collection (May) 10 votes
Smile Dawning Of A New Era (August) 9 votes

So, each Box Set released last year has made it to the final polls Exclamation

…two other albums polled 8 votes and so just missed out:
Wink Dennis Alcapone - Guns Don’t Argue (March) and…
Wink All Shook Up - A Reggae Tribute To The King (November)

In total, 349 votes were cast through the year - many thanks again to those taking the time to do this!. This averages to almost 32 votes per month.

Apart from August, when 38 people voted, the range of votes cast was pretty even, never less than 29 votes and never more than 33 votes. I wonder if it’s the usual “hardcore” of us voting.

Anyway, I will use Excel’s random number function to figure out which albums will go into which polls and I’ll put the 3 semi-finals polls up at the same time and allow around 2 weeks for you to vote.

I'll put the 3 polls up a little later on Wink
Play it nice and cool, son. Nice and cool! You know what I mean.
