Top 50 Albums 2020

2020 isn’t the sort of year any of us want to experience again. Through the death, pain and suffering music kept many of us going. With virtually no live gigs after March we had to make do with listening to music; mostly alone at home. This list represents the 50 albums that we have listened to and enjoyed the most this year.

Dylan may well be towards the end of his life and “Rough & Rowdy Ways” reflects that. It is a culmination of a lifetime of writing and performing and no other track resonated with us as much as ‘Murder Most Foul”.

The New Year beckons and we cannot wait to hear some of this music live at gigs in 2021.
