Reference Recordings to Release New Doug MacLeod Album on CD and Double 45rpm LP
On March 12, 2013 Reference Recordings will release a CD version and then sometime later a double 45rpm 1/2 speed mastered 200 gram Quality Record Pressings edition of a new recording by Piedmont blues specialist Doug MacLeod.
McLeod's 1994 Audioquest album Come to Find a musically and sonically superb album that has stood the test of time is being reissued by Analogue Productions and it's a musically and sonically superb album.
The new one, There's a Time was recorded at Skywalker Sound, with MacLeod backed by Denny Croy on bass and Jimi Bott on drums. Recorded by (Dr.) Keith O. Johnson, to 176k/24 bit digital, the sound should be as good as the music.
Years ago Mr. MacLeod apprenticed as a sideman with as Big Joe Turner, Big Mama Thornton and Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, among others, during which time he developed a unique acoustic guitar style and honed his soulful vocal delivery.
About the production of this new album, MacLeod says "They put Jimi, Denny and me on this huge soundstage at Skywalker Sound in Marin County and we sat around in a circle where we could see each other. We played live, no overdubs, just three guys playing some music together."
