Excellent songwriting, magic guitar playing, warm vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances make Doug MacLeod one of the best blues artists of the present. Whose Truth, Whose Lies? is the fourth album by the American label during AudioQuest Music. It is neither ground nor smooth, instead, MacLeod is based on the simplicity and sincerity of the country-blues of the 1930s and 40s, without sounding old. Unmistakable are the influences from soul, rock and folk. No album for purists, but irresistible. In the original, there is a DSD recording.
