“As great a blues album as you will find in 2015”

2015 Shemekia Copeland - Outskirts Of Love 300x300

Outskirts Of Love is about as great a blues album as you will find in 2015. The fact that it comes from Shemekia Copeland, one of the greatest female blues artists in the world, or is released by Alligator Records, the best blues music label in the world, should come as no surprise. […]

And the album even has a great noir cover shot. There is nothing not to like here. Every blues collection should include it. Shemekia dedicates it to B.B. King. But God willing, we will have many more decades of great blues from Shemekia Copeland. And may Alligator keep leading the way.
