“What an incredible year of the blues! […] It wouldn’t have been such a great year for blues without the 50 quality releases that we’ve selected as the best of 2015, which you’ll find on the following pages. Unlike previous years, this time we’ve numbered them in descending order and, for the first time, selected an album of the year,” wrote The Blues Magazine‘s editor Ed Mitchell in December. And for the British magazine, this album of the year was Shemekia Copeland’s… Outskirts of Love!
