Great CD
Barry Elder | Tell City, Indiana United States | 06/20/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have had this disc for a couple of weeks and have been playing the crap out of it! Not a bad song on the disc. One of the better disc I have listened to for quite a while, everything from traces of swing, blues to jazz influences. A very versitle artist and great guitar player. I recently was lucky enough to catch him live and the band is tight! Don't pass up a chance to catch his live show and for sure don't pass up this disc. It is excellent!"
Mark is one of the best

"After having toured with Mark in the Dickie Betts Band, and having recorded with him on "The Doll Maker" I can honestly tell you that this CD is worth picking up...... Mark has a guitar style that can only be described as "on fire" .......When we were on stage, some of us would light an imaginary match when Mark would take a guitar solo... When you listen to any track on this CD you will feel the fire in Mark's and Dickie's guitar playing. It was an honor to have worked with them, both live and on "The Doll Maker".......Jr. Ortiz"
Own this CD!

"Mark has clearly grown as a player, singer and writer, and although I love all of his recordings, this is the best so far! It has elements of blues, blues-rock, southern rock (a big nod to the Allmans and especially Dickie, on "Place Your Betts", an awesome instrumental in the "Jessica" vein) and even Santana's influence is showcased. Despite the obvious nods to familiar influences, Mark retains his own sound and can burn with the best of them - the guitar work here would do Carlos and Dickie proud anytime. Dickie Betts guests on a track as well, and is in top form.Having talked enough about the Santana and Allman influences, now just let me say that the OTHER 10 tracks are fantastic as well, showcasing Mark's versatile writing (exception: Albert Collins' "I Ain't Drunk", delivered by bassist and party animal extraordinaire Danny Cooper) and effortlessly burning guitar chops. There are plenty of precision dual leads and occasionally blinding runs, as well as a wide pallette of monster guitar tones, and all is laid out with soul and passion to spare - no shred-fest or mindless noodling here, and the musical content will be accessible to non-guitar-freaks and guitarists alike.If you like blues-rock, with some funk, Southern and Latin influences thrown in, you can't do any better than this! Mark deserves a LOT more exposure, and YOU deserve a lot more Mark May! So get yourself a copy of this one, and have some fun!"
