OK - GUILTY - I am A Kenny Wayne Shepherd devotee!
What I don't understand, however, is why this man remains still the "undiscovered" talent that he is?
So, here we are, getting on for 4 years since his last album, "10 Days Out" (in itself a superlative bit of blues), with a live album that knocks spots off many contemporary live albums - and again with several of his heroes turning out in support. And, what we have here is one very well recorded and classy album with Noah Hunt providing sublime vocals (per usual) and KWS throwing in lick after lick on self penned numbers like Somehow, Somewhere, Someway, Kings Highway, True Lies, Deja Voodoo and Blue On Black, and with the support of Hubert Sumlin, Bryan Lee, Buddy Flett and Willie Big Eyes Smith, we are treated to classics in the form of Baby Don't Say That No More, Eye To Eye, How Many More Years and Sick And Tired - how much more can a blues afficianado want?
Even if you are not really into the blues, then this album rocks too, all anchored by the well-oiled rythmn section that is Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon of Double Trouble fame and Scott Nelson and Riley Osbourn of Kenny's regular band - all in all a galaxy of excellent support to produce one glorious noise.
If you don't buy another blues album or another live one - just make sure that you catch up with this cracker and enjoy what is without doubt, one of THE albums of 2010!
