"I happened upon Dougie Maclean's music quite by accident when I spotted him on a tv show about Celtic music. I ordered my first cd and have been collecting them since. Just when I think I've gotten the best cd ever, I order another one and it becomes my new favorite. Such is "Riof". What sets this cd apart is the sheer poetry of Dougie's always thoughtful lyrics. Each track gets better and better and as usual, he closes his album with probably the strongest song. I truly regret not being aware of Maclean's music on my trip to Scotland, it would have been a joy to stop by Dunkeld. But his songs bring back wonderful memories of that amazing land and it's people. I cannot recommend his music highly enough and "Riof" is a great way to start. If you enjoy beautiful music sung extraordinarily well you will not regret buying this cd."

"This is my fav Dougie LP...Absolutely brilliant folk music, that happens to come from a Scots man...gorgeous melodies, wonderful lyrics and a great voice to bring it all home!!!
What is with the comparisons to James (Coo-Coo) Taylor???- the only similarity perhaps, is they both play accoustic guitars...Dougie is far superior in all aspects of songwriting (and live performances) and one listen to this record will hook you to this guy's music!!..."

"I ran into Dougie MacLean when Folk Alley played "Scythe Song" and I knew I had to have it. When the CD arrived I realized that I'd gotten much more than I expected. This is a gem! I recommend it to anyone who is a "folkie" or even close."
