"Two years after his last release, the lauded Brand New Eyes, troubadour Doug MacLeod returns with a set of thirteen tunes that emphasize his versatility and expertise in singing, acoustic guitar artistry, and storytelling. This album is proof that MacLeod’s seven nominations in the last eight years by the Blues Foundation for the Blues Music Award as Acoustic Artist of the Year are well deserved...
"This CD was recorded live, without overdubs. The sound is crisp and the instrumentation is pristine, without frills or pretention. The liner notes include informative biographies of the three musicians and MacLeod’s brief but enlightening descriptions of the provenance and tunings of each song.
Even if you have never heard MacLeod before, you will end up delighted by the breadth and skill of this CD, and its intimacy will probably induce you to think of Doug MacLeod as a new friend. We old friends are equally delighted. If this album isn’t acclaimed by many as best acoustic album of the year, I will be stunned." — Steve Daniels, BluesWax
