In the meantime we encourage followers of the weekly online Blues twitter forum #BluesHour to post their opinions especially with regard to the extremely broad choice option of Best Album/Recorded Session. There is also the option of emailing a suggestion but as this is not yet the voting process we request that a single message will do. At this time of year we also stress we cannot reply to all individual emails but everything sent will be read and taken into consideration by the team. We look forward to another fantastic vote and thank everyone for their continued and highly valued support.
