Top 10 Albums for 2015

by | 5 Jan, 2016

RMRThe Roots Music Report lists the top albums for 2015. These lists are collected from play lists across the USA and Internationally.

While one might expect that the top singles should in some way be reflected in the top album list this is not so. I asked Roots Music Report staff about this and their advice was that not all of our stations report the singles that were played.  They only report the album.
