4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut album August 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ledbetter Heights is a very strong debut album from Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Shepherd's guitar style is very reminiscent of the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan. Most of the material here is very strong. The opening tracks "Born With A Broken Heart" and "Deja Voodoo" received extensive airplay on AOR radio and are both excellent tracks featuring Shepherd's outstanding playing. Other strong tracks include the slow blues of "Shame, Shame, Shame", the soulful "Riverside", and the driving "Aberdeen." His version of Howlin' Wolf's "I'm Leaving You (Commit A Crime)" is also an excellent track. However, the best example of Shepherd's playing may be on the slow live track "While We Cry" and the killer ending title track which sounds like it would fit in nicely on Vaughan's Texas Flood album. Other tracks such as "Everybody Gets The Blues" and "What's Goin' Down" are decent, but not as strong as the rest of the album. A great debut, highly recommended to fans of blues guitarists such as SRV as well as the new breed of blues players like Jonny Lang.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Debut March 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Although I think KWS's "Live On" CD is his most original release yet, in some ways this one is even better. In my opinion, Corey Sterling is a more natural singer, less forced or put-on than his replacement, Noah Hunt. And this one features some great keyboard work by Jimmy Wallace, who isn't even on the "Live On" release. The first half of the CD is incredible, with several songs ("Deja Voodoo", "Born with a Broken Heart", "One Foot on the Path", "Everybody Gets the Blues", & the soaring instrumental "While We Cry") rating as good as anything Shepherd's recorded so far. Also, the songwriting is actually better here than on the two follow-up releases. A couple of weak tracks, ("Aberdeen" & "Riverside") keep this one from rating 5-stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A young man with the blues August 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Kenny Wayne shepherd burst onto the scene as a young major league guitar slinger. A couple of releases later and he seems to have disappeared.Kenny Wayne earned and deserved all the accolades given him.Ledbetter Heights was and is still an excellent CD. Mostly originals with a few covers thrown in, Ledbetter Heights is his most bluesy effort.He has a solid and talented band.I have no preferance between Corey or Noah on vocals , both are strong singers.
Shame,Shame,Shame is my favorite cut, a great blues jam.Kenny has a great extended solo that hints at Stevie Ray. Born Under a Bad Sign, Deja Voodoo and Aberdeen all enjoyed radio airplay and are fine blues\rock songs.Aberdeen is a Bukka White song, it starts with acoustic sound with some slide guitar and then the band kicks in, theres plenty of slide guitar fills its a cool song.While We Cry sounds toooo much like The Allmans song Soul Shine, but it is a good showcase for Kennys deft and subtle touch. I'm Leaving You is a Howlin Wolf song played ala SRV. Let Me Up is a true blue Texas shuffle, short but sweet.Riverside sounds like a haunted night on the bayou ,very eerie.The last two tracks sound like filler material to me, not bad ,but not up to the standards set by the rest of Ledbetter Heights
My hope is that Kenny will put out a CD that will pay tribute to all the blues legends he mentions in the liner notes. Ledbetter Heights gave me a taste as to how good he can be.One day he will be mentioned in the same breathe as these greats but he will need to release more great Cds like Ledbetter Heights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its Awesome! July 1, 2000
By "mlca"
Format:Audio CD
I decided to hear this album after seeing it on my recomendations for a couple months. It is so good! The best track is "While We Cry". I didn't know so much emotion could be put into a guitar solo, its amazing. Other stand-out tracks are "Born With a Broken Heart", "Aberdeen" and the instrumental "Ledbetter Heights". This CD is put in the category of "Blues" and it is mainly blues. But I hear sort of a blues-rock-country sound, but maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about. Whatever it is, it sounds great! Kenny Wayne Sheppard is an excellent guitarist! This album rocks, now I need to hear "Live On" and "Trouble Is"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenny Wayne Shepherd walks in Stevie's shadows. February 27, 2001
By J Cox
Format:Audio CD
At the young age of 7, Kenny Wayne Shepherd met a man that would forever change his life. Stevie Ray Vaughan, one of the most influential blues masters picked up young Shepherd and placed him on his amplifier where he watched an entire show unfold. Something was passed through Vaughan to Shepherd that day, and it is very apparent in Shepherds first album, Ledbetter Heights.
Almost 9 years later, a 16 year-old Shepherd emulates his idol Vaughan in ways that even fool me. I find myself truly wodering if Shepherd himself may be Vaughans spirit on songs like "Shame, Shame, Shame". But do not be mistaken, this is not a copycat album. New territories are explored and mastered making this one of the best blues albums from the 90's. "Aberdeen" is a gripping slide-guitar jam that smokes. "While We Cry" is one of the most amazing blues instumentals since Vaughans rendition of "Little Wing". I would highly reccomend this to anyone familiar with SRV. I strongly believe something inside Shepherd was touched by Vaughan, and rightly so. If Vaughan was the king of blues, then Shepherd rules the kingdom now as his heir.
