"For the listener, this record is so clear that you feel like you are cheating, sneaking into some elite, top drawer concert where the ticket prices must be many times the cost of this compact digital masterpiece — where every note is drawn in then exhaled. MacLeod, whose compositions have been picked up and recorded by folks like Albert Collins, Albert King and Son Seals, and who has backed such headliners as Big Mama Thornton, Big Joe Turner and Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, doesn't know his way around a bad lyric or a tired note. He knows inspired.
The guess is, you're going to play "There's A Time" over and over, and each time, caught as if for the first time, in the pulse of MacLeod's authentic talking blues." — Jean Bartlett
