At the very start of August we were still away on our holiday – so when we returned it was all about hunkering down, and albums-wise I caught up with a few from earlier in the year (and even last year) as well as a few brand new things. Found lots to like of course – there always is. Instrumentalists, singer/songwriters, reissues of classic funk and jazz, live albums, soundtracks, there really is something for everyone here – an eclectic line-up across the month of reviewing.
So click here for the best albums I reviewed in August.
You’ll find reissues, compilations, EPs and live albums – as well as full-length studio releases. Most of the material here was released in 2015/16 but in some cases it was released in 2014 and only made it to me this year – or I only (finally) got to it this year.
