    INCREDIBLE Top 11 Alan!!! Probably will end up with 7 albums from the 11 suggestions. J. Charles and the Trainrobbers takes me back to the great days of the I.R.S. label from the 80's; they had some really cool bands on that label with a country influenced sound that I really enjoyed. From there i also enjoyed Freelance Whales, The Calm Blue Sea, The Dunwells, Converge, Ultraista and Dr. Dog. This is a virtual cornucopia of musical wonderfulness you have given us this week Mr. Cross. Cheers!
