BEST ALBUM: Outlaw Radio: Compilation Vol. 1 To me, it’s controversial to put a compilation on an all encompassing award. (My review here) But this cd still in my stereo and I like it so much, I bought a few more and sent them out to friends. It gave me gifts of new songs by artists I already know are awesome and introduced me to bands that I had no idea were awesome. Thank you Jashie P. for putting this out there. My favorite album as a whole is Jayke Orvis: It’s All Been Said. Jayke is one of the best our movement has to offer and he brings all his friends with him. More

I happened upon this cd at my favorite used cd shop, Last Vestige’s blues section. Never heard of him but it’s new and it’s put out by Lost Highway. I fell in love in within minutes! He is the love child of old Stax and Motown.
UPDATE: They’re ON TOUR http://www.blackjoelewis.com/tour/ and will be in NYC on the 25th!
