It has been a Jim Lauderdale kind of week!

Not only have we had details of his new record Time Flies which is due out August 3, but on the very same day a collaborative album he recorded with Roland White way way back in 1979 will finally see the light of day.  Compare the Jim album photos down below.  The other good news is Kevin Gordon‘s new album Tilt & Shine (which we have been playing with great glee at Listening Through The Lens) has also been outed.  Aside from these, our list of newbies is very scant this week with just Joe Fiddle and David Haerle added.

The updated list shows albums recently made available and those in the pipeline, now stretching to September 2018 – album cover, artist, title and release date, with the last category in chronological order for your viewing ease.  Where we have written more detail about a particular collection or have reviewed it prior to, or after, its public issue, you can click on the album title and you will be magically transported to the relevant article.

If you click on just about every album cover, you will go the Amazon purchase page – in case that is your preferred method of acquisition – you will also find more details there as well.

Some album covers have not been made available yet.  We’ll keep on checking back and including them as soon as we can.

Listings should roughly fall into the roots music category (as widely defined as you like) and only full collections – we do not want to clog up this space with EPs and singles.

With each update we include a header and feature image from our own Jim Jacob.  The picture may have something to do with the new material, or just chosen at random.  In the latter case, they will be mostly ones we haven’t used before from our extensive live music image archive.  This week on the header is the fiery and inventive blues man Gary Clark Jr captured at Bluesfest 2014, Byron Bay Australia.   The featured image is also from the same event – a passion bolt delivered by Pat Wilder of the Music Maker Blues Revue.
