Guitar World's Top 15 Blues and Roots Rock Albums of 2012

This year, with no Allmans-related albums filling up the new-releases bin, the blues, blues-rock and roots-rock vacuum has been filled — rather handily — by top Texans ZZ Top and Gary Clark Jr., habitual favorites Robert Cray and Bonnie Raitt and and the powerful, exciting trad blues of the late Michael "Iron Man" Burks, who died of a heart attack earlier this year at age 54.
