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.

KWS have exceeded even my expectations with this release with Kenny looking back to his blues (and R&B) roots to serve up a brilliant new album. Having recently seen the band in far from ideal conditions (in genteel quintessentially English Cheltenham!!) and heard a couple of the tracks , I was keener than ever to get my hands on the cd. I was not disappointed! "You done lost your good thing!", the BB King number is my particular favourite and shows Kenny's deft guitar touch excellently, but then the very next track "You can't tell a book by the cover" is an upbeat contrast again brilliantly delivered.
Seriously, for blues fans, get this album! You won't be disappointed. And non blues fans? Still buy it, you may well become a convert to this still young master blues guitarist.

Is this one of his best recordings? There seems to be a bit more variation in his music with added extra brass in some of his songs
but it adds a lot of extra light and shade to his material, this may sound a little surprising each track has it's own identity in which Kenny Wayne Shepherd proudly presents his blues influences throughout the whole album. A stunning album!! If you have the blues
or need the blues this one will definitely do the trick.

American blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd has done exactly as the title of his seventh studio album suggests and returned home, to Shreveport Louisiana, to record his seventh studio album.

It’s also a return to the very roots of Shepherd’s music.

Goin’ Home is a traditional blues album featuring songs associated with or written by many of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s blues heroes including B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the latter a major influence on Shepherd’s desire to play guitar and in the sound of his earliest recordings.

But since those Ledbetter Heights debut days as an 18-year-old Kenny Wayne Shepherd has gone on to establish his own gritty and authentic blues identity – Goin’ Home may be faithful to the feel of the original material but that vibrant Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band sound is stamped across the 12 track (15 on the Deluxe Edition) album, aided and abetted by a number of guest musicians.

A punchy rendition of Freddie King’s 'Palace of the King,' featuring The Rebirth Brass Band and a great vocal from long-time band Shepherd member Noah Hunt (whose low tenor and vocal sympathies are perfectly suited to the material) sets the classy blues tone right from the off.

There’s a double helping of Muddy Waters by way of a great version of 'I Love The Life I Live' (with The Fabulous Thunderbirds Kim Wilson on harmonica and fat, bluesy solos from Kenny Wayne Shepherd and guest guitarist Joe Walsh) and 'Still a Fool,' featuring blistering guitar exchanges between Shepherd and the brilliant pedal steel player Robert Randolph.

After hearing a track of Kennys new cd Goin Home on Planet Rock and seeing a review I had to have it. It like his previous cd but thus us fabulous.
Some great guests and a fabulous brass section on some tracks coupled with Kennys exceptional guitar playing make this a cd you must have if you like the blues.
