Plenty of activity as you can see from new stuff this week, next week and some interesting additions.

An exciting group of add-ons to the entire to-come list, alphabetically speaking – Barbara Blue, Billy F Gibbons,The Black Lillies, Buck Owens, Cat Power, The Dirty River Boys, Drivin N Cryin, Dusty Stray, Elvis Costello, Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, Jordie Lane, Matthew Perryman Jones, Mountain Heart, Willie Nelson (he must spend a lot of time in the studio – this is his third release this year!), 

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 Jim showcases Elvis Costello in the header as a nod to his Look Now coming October 12 , taken at Byron Bay’s Bluesfest a while ago.  The featured image is Amanda Shires at the same event to note her new album To The Sunset in stores digital and physical next week.
