There's something about listening to deep rooted blues there's no faking it even if you're not to familiar with the genre. These are artist feel the music, and you can sure tell by their pain while wailing of certain notes. I really enjoy listing to Doug MacLeod, Whose Truth, Whose Lies, and all of the above comes through on the Stereo Sacd disc. The guitar playing by Doug is pretty amazing, the hits of the guitar come out clean, making me feel I'm smacked middle of some little hall somewhere in the out shirts of the south...I can feel the damp summer night while listening to Saint Louis on My Mind Track 6
Doug's lyrics are clever, and humorous while genuine like a great parent giving you life lessons about just everything, but never preachy though. I love these types of songs, makes me feel glad I'm a man, not shameful like most of todays commercial try to convey us to be. Listen to Rise up Track 9
, just great plain lyrics, conviction on his voice come through clean while guitar flows clean, you just can't help but tap your feet..I respect these of artist for their rawness take it or leave it attitude, no apologies here no Sir..
I only wish they would have use the rear channels for more atmosphere feel, other than that I'm a happy camper. If you like, folk, country, or blues, or even if you like to dabble in these genres this is great album to start with, thanks to guys at the Hi Res thread in recommending this one.
Thanks Daniel JAttachment 235982
