So, first ever recording back home in Shreveport, Louisiana - sounds like a good excuse to raid the influences and heroes archive, and that's exactly what Kenny & the band have done here; and invited some friends to sit in, friends like Warren Haynes, Joe Walsh, Robert Randolph.
But, this isn't self-indulgent, nor is it another mere covers album; the tracks have been recorded "live" in the studio, the old fashioned way, on tape with the original feel & vibe of the tracks coming through, though with the KWS stamp all over them. Kenny even takes on a few of the vocal duties, noticeably on the Muddy Water's selections, and while he doesn't come close to the power, he catches the phrasing almost perfectly.
The Deluxe version of the album has 3 extra tracks, the latter 2, Trick bag & Can You Hear Me revisiting his Louisiana heroes, Earl King & Lee Dorsey & Howlin' Wolf's 300lbs of Joy.
In short, this album is as much fun to listen to as it probably was to record.
