End of year top 20, 2017

Since it is 1st December and nothing new of any note likely to come out between now and end of year thought I would be first up to post a top 20. This in no particular order but probably fair to say those at very top of list are my favourites:-

Hiss Golden Messenger – Halleleujah Anyhow Conor Oberst – Ruminations Baxter Dury – Prince of Tears Four Tet – New Energy Kevin Morby – City Music David Rawlings – Poor Davids Almanac John Moreland – Big bad Luv Zara McFarlane – Arise Jason Isbell – The Nashville Sound Ray Davies – Americana Penguin Cafe – The imperfect Sea Chuck Prophet – Bobby Fuller died for your sins Blue Rose Code – The water of Leith Curse of Lono – Severed Randy Newman – Dark Matter Lucinda Williams – Sweet Old World (2017) Ian Felice – Kingdom of Dreams St.Vincent – Masseduction Rodney Crowell – Close Ties John Murry – A short history of decay.
