"Mac McAnally's "Knots" is a CD I continually pull off the shelf. No matter how hard the day, it sets your toe to tapping, puts a smile on your face & some cheer in your heart and gets you singing along. My favorite track is the hook-laden "Take It Easy (All I Know I About Love)," which has to be one of the catchiest tunes of all time. The story of the cleaning lady whose homegrown wisdom is overheard by a psychologist and turned into a blockbuster self-help enterprise always puts a smile on my face. McAnally must be cousin to Canada's Colin Linden or Texas' "Randy Weeks" with his sense of rock & bounce. "Good For Nothin'" is another tune whose driving guitar rocks you off the chart while Mac celebrates the attractions of lethargy. "The Knot" is a great midtempo country track about those who've experienced love lost, "And friends if you never knew love...turn off this song, but if you've had true love & it's come & gone, I'd have to say there's a good chance that you have a knot in your stomach to look forward to." "There I'll Be" is another catchy midtempo romantic track, "Whatever the future holds, God only knows; but one thing I can see, wherever you are, there I'll be." "Down the Road" is another midtempo country track with Paul Franklin's steel guitar adding country spice, "Her mama wants to know am I washed in the blood or just in the water; Her daddy wants to know if I make enough to take his daughter." McAnally's "Knots" shows him at the top of his game in a consistently strong body of work for numerous labels since the 70s. For as wonderful as he is, he's marvelously unknown. Don't let this gem pass by! Bravo!"
