review Doug MacLeod / Washington Blues Society

this review was published in the latest BluesLetter of the Washington Blues Society:

Doug MacLeod – Live in Europe

Doug MacLeod’s latest release on the Netherlands- based Black and Tan label captures the two-time Blues Music Award-winning acoustic bluesman live in 2006. While his most recent release on California-based Reference Recordings have certainly garnered “Dubb” some well-deserved recognition, Live in Europe features 11 songs from an out-of-print DVD, The Blues In Me. This is the first digital-only release I have reviewed in the Bluesletter, and while I miss holding a CD in my hands and reading the liner notes and story behind the production of this release, I think that Live in Europe represents the future. A future that distributes music on a number of digital platforms, such as Amazon Music, iTunes and Spotify. Continue reading review Doug MacLeod / Washington Blues Society

review Doug MacLeod – Live in Europe in Rootsville (Belgium)

rootsvilleNaast de talrijke albums die deze storyteller al op zijn conto heeft staan bracht ‘Black and Tan Records’ ook nog eens in eigen beheer een serie uit van  studio albums van deze Doug MacLeod tussen 2002 en 2008. De missing link was in deze verzameling misschien wel deze ‘Live In Europe’.

Doug MacLeod (new release)

B&T 954 – Doug MacLeod – Live in Europe

We are preparing another great release ! Between 2002 and 2008 we released four great studio CD’s by Doug MacLeod on Black and Tan Records. But since the real magic comes out during his shows we also recorded a live concert in 2006. These live recordings were released on a limited edition concert DVD (The Blues In Me). The DVD is no longer available and we think it is time to make this great music available on other platforms. We edited the recordings and extracted eleven complete songs from the two live sets. This will be the first official (audio) release of Doug playing live as a solo artist.The release will only be available as stream and download on all the platforms. Scheduled release date is March 3, 2016.

review Boo Boo Davis from Brazil

Escutem One Chord Blues do Boo Boo Davis

O Boo Boo Davis é um daqueles músicos de Blues que estão bem escondidos no coração do Mississippi, mais exatamente na cidade de Drew, a cidade da ativista Mae Bertha Carter e do pai dos irmãos Manning da NFL. Boo Boo tocou por décadas em St. Louis e teve a oportunidade de servir como banda de apoio a diversos músicos que por lá passaram, B.B. King antes da fama foi um deles. Ao contrário do que você pensa, esse não é um Delta Blues, o som dele é eletrificado, mas ainda é possível encontrar o Delta em suas canções.

review Boo Boo on RifRockerz (Spain)

Boo Boo Davis “One Chord Blues”

Imos con uns cantos álbumes recomendados antes do fin de semana. De primeiro, o novo de Boo Boo Davis. Nos últimos anos estase a converter no meu bluesman favorito, xa vos comentamos noutras ocasións pinceladas da súa vida e carreira, pero ahí segue, con 72 anos e publicando un álbum tras doutro desde o mesmo delta do Mississippi. O seu novo traballo é “One Chord Blues”, que inclúe material novo e outras pezas xa coñecidas a modo de pequena revisión de temas dos seus últimos anos, algúns deles están incluídos tal cual estaban recollidos en álbumes anteriores, outros grabados de novo, e algunha peza que non fora publicada, e todo grabado en directo de estudio para recoller toda a forza da súa harmónica e a voz rasgada, só acompañado John Gerritse na batería e Ene Mittendorp coa guitarra. Son 16 cortes, alternado temas novos e vellos, revisando pezas propias e tradicionais, todo pasado polo seu particular blues eléctrico, pero sinxelo, directo e contundente. Perfecto para quen queira comezar con Boo Boo Davis. Eu podería escoitalo hipnotizado durante horas.
