Not eligible since I think the Iguana lists are from a single person.



You can see the logo from the magazine and the lists from previous years since 1991 here:


(Go to list by publications and you'll find it)


I know the logo very well, but the publication does not exist.


Henrik: I think "Iguana" is the name of a fanzine, published by Xavier Valiño, a Spanish journalist and music critic. In his personal website "ultrasonica.info" Valiño has released its lists. You can check that both are the same:



The ultrasonica site is where I found out about this. From the page http://ultrasonica.info/index.php/enlaces.html

- Listas con lo mejor del año: Recopilación de las listas de lo mejor del año desde los 50, de todas las publicaciones musicales que puedas pensar. Y lo mejor de todo es que tiene las listas de Campus Galicia desde el año 1991 camufladas como si fueran las propias de la revista "Iguana". http://www.rocklist.net

I'm not sure, but it seems likely that the lists are by Xavier Valiño alone.
