“Linda’s book is just incredible. It is a massive piece of artwork. The photos not only tell a story, but they’re gorgeous. The book is epic. She caught a very special part of music history at a time and in a way that will probably never ever happen again. Our band is probably the closest you can get to that feeling of Mad Dogs and Englishmen. I feel really lucky to have been together for the reunion, to have made friends with everybody from Rita to Leon to Chris to Chuck Blackwell, Matthew Moore, Bobby Jones, Pamela, and Claudia. I was blown away by how much love there was, and really there was no ego, which is rare nowadays. All this, Linda documented beautifully. I’m so glad that people will get a real feeling of what happened and how special it was. To have her record of all this is really a gift. ”
— Susan Tedeschi Trucks
“From the beginning of Mad Dogs, Linda Wolf was there present and aware, not only of the journey about to unfold, but ready to document those precious days with her brilliant photographs. We always trusted her, then and now, to be true to her art, and our hearts, in the most intimate and musical moments. This book will give you a look into those magical times. ”
— Rita Coolidge
Ron Wood (Not that Ron Wood) –
Watched the live steam this afternoon. It was really informative. I was wondering where to order the book, and now I know. I never got to see Mad Dogs and Englishman in concert (I was only 7) but have seen the Tedeschi Trucks band multiple times. Its obvious some of the synergies between the two bands. Glad to see my kind of music continuing on. Can't wait to get the book.

I know this goes against every financial principle of creating and releasing a book but... I feel so protective of the legacy that unless you’ve really loved this album for a very long time and feel a genuine connection with the universal spirit that is MD&E you really don’t deserve to look at this glorious book let alone own it!
But do yourself an immense favor and gets this book...It's literally a trip through space and time...
Fantastic job Linda....one of the best Rock 'n Roll documents I’ve ever had the priviledge to experience.
Very excellent book and photos by Linda ! Was a little young but not too much for seeing Maddogs , but , LOVE the music ! Damn , Joe and the band did one hell of a fantastic job !!
