Following close behind at No. 27, Danny & The Champions Of The World.Our friends over at one of our favourite record shops, Rapture, have awarded Danny & The Champs 2nd place in their overall Top 10 of 2010. Take a look. If you're ever anywhere round Oxfordshire way, make sure you drop in and say hello to them at their great little record shop in Witney.Head on over to Bucketfull Of Brains and you shall see that both Danny & The Champs and Duke & The King make it onto yet another top 10 list. Wonderful.Brighton's Gilded Palace Of Sin place Streets Of Our Time at No.3 on their list, with a fantastic little review, referring to Danny  as "the Neil Young of New Cross, Springsteen via Surbiton"."Timeless" says  Magazine's Rob Gannon, when describing Streets Of Our Time, which he places at No.20 in his list.Finally, here's a good one from the Black Powder Smoke blog over the other side of the pond - "A bunch of Brits put out one of the best Americana albums in recent memory". Fantastic. Coming in at No.6 in that list.

“there’s always been a sense of a tasteful restraint to the studio albums but unleashed on stage with their raspy vocals and heartland rock and soul, they’re like a power station on steroids.”


“This is a proper old school live album, makes you want to go to a gig”


“songs like This Is Not a Love Song and and Stay True which come at you one after the other; are destined to make ‘new fans’ wonder why these kids aren’t topping the bill at Glastonbury with their magic formula and bittersweet songs.”
