The May/June 2022 issue of Living Blues Magazine features a rave review for Doug MacLeod’s A Soul To Claim:
“A Soul to Claim builds on MacLeod’s skillful, expressive acoustic guitar work, supported here by Dave Smith on bass guitar, Rick Steff on keyboards, and Steve Potts on drums. The arrangements are subtle, with lots of spaces between the notes and a warm, intimate character. The bass, drums, and keys are often felt more than heard; sometimes the band sits out altogether, as on Dodge City. …everything about A Soul to Claim—from its understated instrumentation to MacLeod’s insightful and incisive words—has that effect, warmly inviting the listener into the world of this masterful blues songwriter.”—Bill Kopp, Living Blues
