Biography

"It was definitely an emotional experience, and it was the most fun I've ever had making a record," Kenny Wayne Shepherd says of his aptly-titled new album, Goin' Home, scheduled for release May 19, 2014 on Concord Records. "I felt like I was retracing my steps back to where it all began." (International release dates may vary)

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This "back-to-the-roots" road-trip documentary CD/DVD from blues-rocking guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd can be viewed in two ways--it's either the culmination of a long-held desire to promote and play with some unheralded blues veterans before they pass away (as six had already done since the recording was made, 2½ years before its early 2007 release) or a way to regain the blues audience Shepherd all but alienated on his artistically and commercially disappointing 2004 hard-rock release, The Place You're In. Ultimately, it succeeds on both accounts. Regardless of the project's inspiration, the results by and large justify whatever the means might have been to get this show on the road--literally and figuratively. Shepherd hit the highway for a week and a half along with producer Jerry Harrison (ex-Talking Heads), a portable studio, and backup musicians including the rhythm section from Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble. He searched out blues artists both obscure (the late guitarist Etta Baker, who plays in her kitchen, is a highlight) and better known (Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and B.B. King) for a series of acoustic and electric jams, all of which feature Shepherd--who, to his credit, generally keeps his hot-dogging tendencies in check. A closing concert featuring members of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters' bands never quite generates the heat it should, but country bluesmen Cootie Stark, Neil Pattman, and harmonica ace Jerry "Boogie" McCain provide plenty of sparks. Shepherd seems sincere enough, but the real stars are the ageing musicians who have maintained their chops and intensity through a lifetime of performing music that clearly comes from the soul. --Hal Horowitz

Product Description

Kenny Wayne Shepherd's reverence for his musical roots are center-stage on Ten Days Out...Blues From The Backroads, a CD+DVD package that features the guitarslinger and Double Trouble rhythm section of bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton performing with some of the greatest blues players of our time as well as lesser-known but historically significant bluesmen. Traveling to their hometowns to record everywhere from juke joints to front porches, from New Orleans to Kansas, Shepherd celebrates and becomes part of blues history with Ten Days Out...Blues From The Backroads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a "star turn" February 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes these collaborations between famous rockers and old bluesmen don't turn out so well. Some do, such as Jimmy Rodgers' Blues Blues Blues, and Hubert Sumlin's About Them Shoes. In any case, the famous rockers too often take center stage. Kenny Wayne Shepherd takes a different approach on the brilliant 10 Days Out. Shepherd, his bandmates, and the Double Trouble rhythm section are the supporting cast to the real stars of this CD and DVD, weathered bluesmen (and blueswoman!) both well-known and obscure. From acoustic backwoods jams to live electric performances, this has it all. And even better, Shepherd took the audio and video crew to the hometowns of the blues musicians and jammed in kitchens, the backwoods, living rooms.... wherever the magic appeared. Even B.B. King performs in a juke joint in his hometown of Indianola MS. If you love the blues, you must own this CD!

POSTCRIPT: The DVD is absolutely a gem! Professionally produced and worthy of broadcast, the blues musicians talk about their lives and and the blues. And like the music, Shepherd stays in the backgroud. The DVD is not about Kenny On The Road, it's about the blues and the musicians who create the music. It's interesting that this package is marketed as an audio CD with a bonus DVD. It could have easily been packaged as a DVD with a bonus CD - it's that good!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the DVD February 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is being sold as a "CD/DVD" which it is, but it is the DVD which needs to be promoted and praised. The CD is a nice bonus to have to play in standard CD players like in your car. The DVD really deserves some awards. The Grammys are a shallow and overly broad presentation of popular music and I am usually less than enthusiastic about the annual event. Still, I hope that this CD/DVD receives recognition there and in other venues throughout the year. The only thing left out by other reviewers who [like me] loved this production is more credit to Kenny Wayne's dad Ken Shepherd who as a co-producer supervised and contributed a lot to this magnificent documentation of the blues.

I know it's a bit more cost-wise than a normal cd, but if you even remotely like the blues you really need to check this out. The music is incredible and the movie (unlike some dvd's attached to cd's) is fantastic. A great trip through history and interviews with some really talented bluesmen. Hopefully some of the proceeds of the disc go to these talented men because as you'll see many live in impoverished conditions even though their music has inspired many of todays very successful musicians. Its definitely worth the purchase price!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rolling Stone Drops the Ball on this Review! February 25, 2007
By T. Rose
Format:Audio CD
I can not disagree more with the RS Review. I feel that a different reviewer should give this CD/DVD combo a second look. This is for the Blues enthusiast and not the show-boating KWS we have seen in the past. Kenny lets the Blues greats enjoy "their moment". As it should be. The RS reviewer could not possibly have and heart felt appreciation for the history of the blues or have watched the DVD. Remember when SRV was told BB King was opening for "him". He told his management this is to NEVER happen again! KWS wanted to make this CD/DVD to capture some of the blues greats that were getting on in age to preserve some of there talent and stories for all time. In fact three of the people that were featured on these recordings past away even before it's release. This is probably one of the top 5 CD's I have ever purchased and I own thousands. Granted it is probably not for people looking for a new pop album or a top charting hit. The live lessons learned on the DVD alone are worth the price for admission. As Cootie Stark sings "I searched and I searched and I searched and I searched but I ain't never found no U-Haul behind no Hearse" RS just got this one wrong. This is a must buy for any Blues enthusiast period.

5.0 out of 5 stars All music fans should be required to watch this January 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you're a Kenny Wayne Shepherd fan you'll love this. If you're a blues fan you'll love this. If you're a fan of real music played with heart and soul by real musicians, you'll LOVE THIS. This is finally a blues documentary that nails it dead on. He introduces you not just to blues legends (BB King) but lesser knowns, who are just as talented and endearing, such as Etta Baker.

It's not just a documentary, it's history. Since its recording SIX of the artists have died. Do yourself a favor and buy it today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent February 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A few weeks ago, I walked into the music department at my local media store, and heard a classic, driving blues number playing. I instantly asked, "Who IS this?" and the clerk held up 10 Days Out, a CD / DVD combo by Kenny Wayne Shepherd. I did not know Mr. Shepherd, and the price tag was a bit daunting, but I made a mental note anyway.

A few days later, I walked into the same store, and heard a great version of a blues song I know well, The Thrill Is Gone, and again, I instantly asked, "Who IS this?" Much to my surprise, the clerk again held up this CD / DVD combo, and I knew immediately that I had to get it.

Upon further perusal, I realized that there were some very good reasons why it caught my attention. Two of them are guest artists B. B. King and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, two of the most respected blues artists in the genre. Since taking it home, I have discovered there are at least a half-dozen more good reasons for liking it, all in the form of the many special guest stars who show us what the blues are all about.

Despite a lukewarm review by Rolling Stone (and their website is ablaze with fans complaining that the reviewer for R. S. missed the boat on this one) I have to say it's one of the more accessible and enjoyable blues jams I've yet acquired, and that's saying a lot.

What's Happened to Noah Hunt's vocals?
I just saw KWS do a show in San Francisco in May 2007, and Noah was with him, and sang on every song. So, they're still working together.
