Plenty to see here this week.

Highlights this week are the new announcements from Blue Water Highway, AHI, Jon Cleary, Birdtalker, Billy Price, Tony Joe White, Michelle Mandico, Jason Isbell (deluxe reissue), The Watters. 

The updated list shows albums recently made available and those in the pipeline, now stretching to October 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 we’ve gone with two unrelated photos.  We could have used Jon Cleary, Tony Joe White or Jason Isbell as they have all announced new material this week, BUT we have used images of them in past weeks so on to something new – on the header is Celtic band The Apparitions performing in a suburban church in Melbourne last May.  The featured image shows Zydeco legend Terrance Simien performing at Byron Bay Bluesfest a few years past.
