Top 5 Records Volume 14 – The Color of Music Recap

Before moving on to more Tokyo Record Style fun, I just wanted to stop and recap our last “Top 5 Records” and send another big thank you to everyone who participated either as a DJ, presenter, or attendee, (or organizer!). It was heaps of fun and the theme made for some interesting musical exploration.

If you’re new here or don’t quite know what “Top 5 Records” is yet, it’s our monthly DJ event and talk show where we play records and countdown our favorite songs, albums, and artists, on various self-imposed themes in tribute to our unlikely heroes and record-store clerks, Rob, Dick, and Barry of the Nick Hornby Novel and cult classic film, High Fidelity.

I’ve actually already recapped last weekend’s 14th volume with a brief synopsis (check out the “groupie” photo from a few posts back). I also recapped in video form over on the Tokyo Record Style YouTube Channel, but I didn’t yet share photos, not the actual Top 5 lists from our hosts, Micheal Warren, bemsha (who had other obligations), yours truly, and our very special guest hosts, Doc Mike Wasabi, and Asano Michael! Thanks so much for joining us and sharing your Top 5 and music. See below for everybody’s Top 5 List on the theme “The Color of Music”

And thank you to everybody who came out and supported us! We’ll see you all back for another edition of Top 5 Records very soon!
