Exactly Like This200 Gram Double LP Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings
"Understanding the importance of restraint to the blues, he skirts the predictable with fresh imagery in lyrics and his music is barb-wire sharp." - Down Beat Magazine
Doug MacLeod is a unique, powerful guitarist with a rich and soulful voice, singing original songs based on his own life and experiences. This is "Genuine Original Acoustic Music" at its very best.
His new album Exactly Like This is his third release with Reference Recordings. It's MacLeod at his very best, in a richly detailed recording by Grammy-winning engineer Keith Johnson, made at Skywalker Sound in Marin County, California.
In live performance, Doug MacLeod assures his audience "This song is going to go exactly like this." It's presented just for them, not a repeat of any performance he's ever given or will ever give. He records the same way, each of his original songs are offered with a fresh voice. Exactly Like This contains 11 new MacLeod originals reflecting and paying tribute to some of his diverse musical influences: Louis Jordan, Wes Montgomery, Jerry Reed, Tony Joe White, John Lee Hooker, and even a little Duke Ellington. In his previous 19 studio albums, several live records, compilations, a blues guitar instructional DVD and a live performance DVD, MacLeod has consistently earned raves.
His songs have been covered by many artists including Albert King, Albert Collins, Joe Louis Walker and Eva Cassidy. He has co-written songs with Dave Alvin and Coco Montoya. MacLeod's songs have been featured in many TV movies and the hit show "In the Heat of the Night." Two of his songs are on Grammy-nominated albums by Albert King and Albert Collins.
Doug MacLeod isn't just a blues guy, he's a singer/songwriter/storyteller and serious guitarist. He is one of the few modern artists doing all original material and traveling the country like a troubadour. Just Doug, headed down the road in his Honda, baseball on the radio, Siri by his side and a trunk full of music!LP1

There's A Time (Out Of Stock)Reference Recordings LPs: The Reference Mastercuts Series, Pressed By Quality Record Pressings
Double LP Set In A Gatefold Jacket, 45 RPM, 200-Gram Vinyl
"I did compare this double 45 cut half speed by Paul Stubblebine and pressed on 200 gram at QRP to the CD version and even comparing on a relatively inexpensive vinyl set-up and mega buck digital one (names omitted to protect the innocent) the vinyl exudes an openness and resolution of spatial and transient detail muffled by the CD. The opening track tells the story. On the CD MacLeod and the others are 'there.' On the LP they are there!. QRP's 200-gram pressings were dead silent too.
