""Poor boy don't need 'lectronics to make no Rock 'n Roll...Poor boy got Boogie-Woogie born right in his soul..." and the lyrics (from "Poor Boy Boogie") goes to tell us that you'd only need sticks, spoons and friends to make good music. This was in the early 70's...when most of us young folks were listening to heavy electrified UNDERGROUND!...But (believe it or not) Mac Davis could, at that time, divert our attention from Henrix and Grand Funk Railroad to his kind of music....Good deep voice, catchy tunes and the lyrics made us feel that, well, we belonged! With the exemption of "Baby Don't Get Hooked on Me" which is everybody's favourite...nice melody....but the words can be dangerous....just don't sing it to your sweetheart....! Get this CD! These songs will last for many years to come...good to listen to while drivin' too!"
Through his songs, I have felt every tear of his life.

"Mac is a wonderful entertainer as well as writer. He brings you into his life with each word. I felt as if I was there during relationships, breakups and the joy of his children. He has no idea how much joy he has given to us as we listen and laugh and cry with him."
