Best Blues of 2016

Again this year I was asked to come up with a list of 10 favorite CDs that came out during the past year.

Thanks to Art Tipaldi for inviting me and the other contributing editors of Blues Music Magazine for our input. See my picks and those of the other editors here:

The discerning and iconoclastic publisher of Blues Junction Productions, David Mac, has released a new Top Ten List of Top Ten Lists. Check it out:

I’d be very interested in your reactions to the lists.

I’m going to post an expanded list very shortly. 10 is too few and often the final inclusions came down to a coin toss.
