19. Fursaxa Alone in the Dark Wood (ATP)
20. Cheese on Bread The Search for Colonel Mustard (self-released)
21. Jill Scott The Real Thing: Words and Sounds, Vol. 3 (Hidden Beach)

(a) #1, #13 and #14 technically came out in the last six weeks of 2006, but why should they get the shaft just because no one pays attention to new releases at the end of the year?
(b) If live albums were eligible, I’d put Cassendre Xavier’s self-released Live at Tin Angel at #9 and move everything after that down a notch.
(c) #14 lives in Brooklyn now, but he lived in Philly when he made the record.
