Under The Radar music group artist: Doug Macleod - Live In Europe - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Live In Europe, from Doug Macleod and it's a quiet, up close and personal concert with a super performer. Opening with acoustic boogie, I Want You, Macleod hammers on his resonator and belts out the blues. If you don't know Macloud, this is it man. On Black Magic, we hear more of a modern delta style with acoustic slide. More dramatic, Ain't The Blues Evil, has a modern feel but dark delta roots. With understated vocals and Muddy Waters like guitar riffs, this is one of my favorites on the release. The New Panama Ltd. is a cool folk blues track with great train guitar action and over 14 minutes of spoken story lines. Very cool. Home Cookin' is a really cool blues rumble along the lines of Sweet Home Chicago. With Macleod's witty delivery and gritty guitar work, this is a crowd favorite. Cold Rain is a real nice blues number with traditional resonator blues riffs. Macleod's slide playing and vocals are true to history and heartfelt. Long Time Road is a strong blues driver with free wheeling guitar and vocals. A prime blues number, it is lively and raw. Turkey Leg Woman has a distinct sound of Mississippi country blues with a lot of rhythm. Energetic finger picking and fan strumming brings this track to life. Wrapping the release is Masters Plan, a simple ballad. Solid vocals and rudimentary rhythm guitar makes this a concrete closer for a solid release.
