Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.
If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)
And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

The Isle Of Deserted Pop Stars' Top 20 Albums Of 2014!
So, now that the dust has settled and 2014 is history, it is time to share my top 20 albums from last year. Though this blog is about the old school, one day these albums will be too and they should not be forgotten. There were many amazing albums released last year, too many to list them all, but these were the ones I found myself repeatedly drawn back to. Like this blog, they encompass all styles of music from house to rock to electro to soul - but all with a POP heart. Hopefully some of you will find and explore these albums. They are all deserving of repeated listens, and gave me a great deal of pleasure over the last year.
