Siberian Siren: The 2017 Platinum Vinyl Awards 1st Qtr - The Megapost

We have come to the end of the first quarter for #PlatVnyl8. Things are really moving fast. It was a pretty lightweight quarter this year, which was propped up by a heavy number of Christmas Releases. As is our custom here at The Night Beat, we begin by grouping the genres that had less than 5 entrants in a quarter into a single or multiple posts. There were 7 such groupings and we will put them into two megaposts. Let us begin.

Folk/Folk Rock

Gospel/R&B

Alternative

Live Recorded Album

And so it begins. Only one comment here in introduction to this quarter's "cutesy" title. I don't mean siren as in police, but in female singers who lured mariners to their destruction with their enchanting voices. So this quarter is dedicated to Natalya Rose Piette, Georgia Napolitano, Lisa LaVie, Autumn Guzzardi, and Kayla Reeves. They are the lovely "sirens" of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. What voices. But no, I don't expect they are leading anyone down to perdition. One more thing. Since VaShawn Mitchell appears twice in this post alone, I have put the regular album link on Gospel and the Deluxe one on Live. One more megapost to go. Until then, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
