My Favorite Music of 2015

In the end, it was a very good year for music.

Albums of a quality that last year would have made my list, went by the wayside in 2015.

I probably didn’t listen to as varied an assortment this year, for whatever reason.

There were new voices, notably Chris Stapleton, whose album I got before the bandwagon left; John Moreland, a powerful Midwestern voice, and Joan Shelley, who sounds a bit like a British folkie, but calls Kentucky home.

And, yes, in case you are wondering, several of these artists likely will appear at North Shore Point House Concerts in 2016.


Jason Isbell – “Something More Than Free.”

Chris Stapleton – “Traveller.”

Courtney Barnett – Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit.”

Joan Shelley – “Over and Even.”

Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin – “Lost Time.”

John Moreland – “High on Tulsa Heat.”

Della Mae — “Della Mae.”

James McMurtry – “Complicated Game.”

Whitney Rose – ‘Heartbreaker of the Year.”

Kevin Gordon – “Long Gone Time.”

Eilen Jewell – Sundown Over Ghost Town.”

Gretchen Peters – “Blackbirds.”

Jimmy LaFave — “The Night Tribe.”

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band — “Live at the Agora 1978” (online download).
