CD Review - Kenny Wayne Shepherd's 10 Days Out (Blues From The Backroads)
By Brian Williams: 2007-01-24 08:55

There’s a classic rock station where I live that tends to play the same songs over and over, and one of those is Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s 1998 single “Blue On Black.” As it just so happens, ole KWS has a brand spankin’ new album called Ten Days Out: Blues From the Backroads, so now I guess I have at least one more new song to eventually get tired of. On second thought, maybe not, as right from the get-go Ten Days, a 15-track disc with accompanying DVD, sets itself apart from Shepherd’s other three releases--it has the same signature blues-rock riffing, but with a more vintage styling compared with his previous works.

The album is supposedly a culmination of songs Kenny has wanted to cover for some time, including tracks by some prominent artists who may be lesser known outside of the blues community. Most notable is the rhythm section of former Double Trouble bandmates Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris Layton (drums) who, of course, made their money backing Kenny’s main influence, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.


Hot House Florida will be listening to the blues by Kenny at the South Florida International Blues Festival!
