Sound Salvation

As usual, there were way more good or great records released than anyone could hear in a year’s time. So admittedly, this is just a representative sample of the albums that received the most play. There are some better; there are a whole lot worse.

Elvis Costello & the Imposters / ‘Look Now’ / Concord

Mary Gauthier / ‘Rifles & Rosary Beads’ / Proper

Billy F. Gibbons / ‘The Big Bad Blues’ / Concord

Angelique Kidjo / ‘Remain in Light’ / Kravenworks

Bettye LaVette / ‘Things Have Changed’ / Verve
