Under the Radar Album 2016: William Bell “This Is Where I Live”

As the title suggests, I believe William Bell’s “This Is Where I Live” has silently gone under the radar this year and will more than likely receive no love from the Grammy’s or any other major award/magazine recognition this year. I heard a sample of this album on public radio and had to check it out.

76 year old (now 77 year old) William Bell put out his 1st major label album in over 30 years with “This Is Where I Live”. The first word that comes to mind when listening to this album is: refreshing.

12 tracks of wonderful blues music featuring an good cover of “Born Under a Bad Sign”. Bell’s voice is a perfect blend of smoky, soothing tones, complementing nicely the story telling element of his songs. Solid guitar playing, good mixture of upbeat and slower songs; I recommend this album strongly for new albums of 2016
