Album Notes
Remastered in 2016 for full cd audio, Into The Blue is MacDonald's 6th studio album, and his first after moving to south Florida in 1995. Featuring MacDonald's rich tenor and solid guitar work, the bouyant music floats along on an array percussion, ranging from congas to kalimba (which MacDonald plays himself) to ankle bells worn while singing Sun Dancer. Yet the songs have his customary depth: "Deep Down In The Everglades" examines the 1996 Value Jet crash in the Glades, while the Aucilla River Song is a hymn to an underground river "hiding from human hands," and "Fear" asks "I live in the country with the greatest military in the history of the world...why can't it protect me?" A sample lyric describing the changes in MacDonald's life comes in the second song, "No Problem," as he sings "I was talking to my wife the other day....wait a minute, when did I get a wife?" Gin and Evi Weintraub, better known in south Florida as Inhouse, lend gutsy harmonies to the vocals, and the production has clarity and musicality throughout. If you want beachside music with some great songs, this is the cd for you.
