Boston Concert Reviews Listens to Exactly Like This

Nelson Brill of Boston Concert Reviews isn't just listening to Doug MacLeod's Exactly Like This, he's listening for what's coming next:

“The blues are storytelling personified and there is no one as agile and wily in telling the blues as Doug MacLeod, 2014 winner of the Blues Music Awards for Acoustic Artist of the Year and perennial favorite here at bostonconcertreviews. Macleod has just released his latest recording on Reference Recordings, entitled Exactly Like This. And it is exactly, precisely, what we expect from this gifted minstrel of sass and deep blues spirit plying his expressive vocals in the rollicking company of his National acoustic guitars. … Every bold guitar stroke and vocal is heard propulsive and resonant in this stellar recording, with Reference Recording’s legendary recording engineer Keith O. Johnson at the controls. … Macleod is a great storyteller with his guitar in hand: from the comic and cruising “Vanetta” … and “Raylene” … to the flashy punctuations of “Ridge Runner”…With all of these high and low tales, it’s a wonder where Macleod’s brilliant narratives and craft will take him next. For sure, we’ll be listening.” —Nelson Brill, Boston Concert Reviews
