What was it Chuck Dickins said, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”? Well maybe so but while this nasty little bug put Live music on hiatus (and continues to do so), for many artists it didn’t stifle creativity; pushed a few release dates back (Steven Wilson & Kaleo - we’re still waiting…) and one in particular, Troy Redfern out bonamassa-ed Bonamassa in terms of prolific output. And even the old warhorses seemed to come good with late surges that bolstered, rather than tarnished their legend.

So, here’s my pick of the best from 2020:-

Troy Redfern - This Raging Heart
Wishbone Ash - Coat of Arms
Beau Bowen - The Great Anticlimax
Silverthorne - Tear The Sky Wide Open
Troy Redfern - Island
Jack J Hutchinson - Who Feeds The Lockdown
Rick Wakeman & The English Rock Ensemble - The Red Planet
Pretenders - Hate For Sale
Deep Purple - Whoosh
Lynne Jackaman - One Shot
Benjamin Bassford - Blood Orange Tangerine
King King - Maverick
Jon Amor - Remote Control

Jeremiah Johnson - Heavens To Betsy
Mapache - Liberty Street
The Sleep Eazys (Joe Bonamassa) - Easy To Buy - Hard To Sell
Victor Wainwright & The Train - Memphis Loud
Robert Jon & The Wreck - Last Light On The Highway
Eric Johanson - Below Sea Level
Joe Bonamassa - Royal Tea
Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown - Pressure
Steve Hill - Desert Trip

Sari Schorr - Live In Europe
Elles Bailey - Ain’t Nothing But
Hawkwind - 50 Live
Kenny Wayne Shepherd - Straight To You LIVE

There’s probably a slew of others, download only, in the world of Bandcamp etc, but I don’t buy “air”, only physical media….
