BEST NEW ALBUM (TIE): Gently Tender. Take Hold Of Your Promise! Sam from Palma Violets has a new band and a new album and it is killer.
BEST NEW ALBUM (TIE): The Chieftains. Bear’s Sonic Journals: The Foxhunt, The Chieftains, San Francisco 1973 & 1976. Classic Irish music recorded by The Grateful Dead's Owsley "Bear" Stanley on their first American tour in 1973, opening for Jerry Garcia's bluegrass band Old And In The Way, as well as a 1976 performance. A fitting tribute to The Chieftain's Paddy Maloney, who passed away last October.
