Power pop from a former member of the Raspberries plus two country-flavored duos and a blues guitar prodigy.
A terrific final statement from the Loud Family. Also, a previously unheard concert by Delta blues legend Son House, and CDs from Bailey Bigger and Bart Davenport.
Noe’s fine sophomore album recalls John Prine. Blues guitarist Robillard, whose career has spanned more than half a century, serves up 18 high-energy tracks.
Collins’s 55th album is the first to consist entirely of self-penned material. Also: a reissue of Cole’s tribute to her father’s music and new releases from three up-and-coming acts.
A great live set from an underappreciated artist, a reissue from a British Invasion group, and a pair of noteworthy folk/rock releases.
