Goin' Home


"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

Product Description

The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band's previous album, Trouble is..., went platinum, topped Billboard's Blues chart for nearly two years, won 1998 Billboard Music Awards for Rock Track of the Year ("Blue On Black") and Blues Album of the Year, and was Grammy nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Live On is another milestone of rockin' blues for this phenomenal musician still in his early twenties. Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA. (2/01)

Never mess with a good thing; Kenny Wayne Shepherd certainly hasn't. There's no appreciable stylistic difference between Live On and its predecessors, Trouble Is... and Ledbetter Heights, except that Shepherd's guitar work here sounds more assured. All of the other usual ingredients are present--a full, crunchy guitar sound, a tight rhythm section, mature-sounding vocals from Noah Hunt, and the usual assortment of uptempo rockers and slower, sweeter numbers. If Shepherd seems to be edging closer to the rock side of the blues-rock genre, it's hardly surprising given that's where he's had his greatest success. And if the result doesn't seem to quite transcend genre boundaries, it is, at least, a high-octane, energetic effort. --Genevieve Williams

4.0 out of 5 stars His Best Yet October 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
To hear Kenny Wayne Shepherd's new single, "In 2 Deep", as well as "Them Changes", you might think he had abandoned his blues roots altogether. These are two smoking hard-rock tracks, bordering on metal. But there is plenty of blues on "Live On", his best, most consistent release so far. Of course there are the standard blues shuffles in "Shotgun Blues" and "Losing Kind." "Last Goodbye" is a mid-tempo blues tune reminiscent of the lighter side of the Allman Bros. "Never Mind" and "You Should Know Better" are up-tempo blues with the familiar KWS swagger, and then there's the scorching cover of Peter Green's classic, "Oh Well." Ex-Allman Warren Haynes adds some slide guitar to "Every Time It Rains." The mood mellows considerably toward the end,and this is where "Live On" shines the brightest. The title track is an anthemic blues ballad with a gospel feel. The track features great background vocals by Stephanie Spruil and Pat Hodges. "Where Was I?" is a brisk soft-rock tune punctuated by Shepherd's bluesy soloing. The cd closes with the appropriately titled instrumental, "Electric Lullaby." A new addition to the KWS Band is bassist Keith Christopher, who plays on several albums by the hard-edged country-rock band Shaver. ("Unshaven:Live" is a great 5-star cd worth checking out.) Unfortunately missing from the KWS band is keyboardist Jimmy Wallace, who contributed greatly to the band's first two releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band April 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of guitar music, especially electric guitar, this album is a must-have.
Kenny's guitar playing is hautingly similar to Stevie Ray Vaughn's and the vocals are a perfect match for the bluesy sound. The sound is very professional, but not sterile like a lot of studio recordings, it has a very "live" feel.
This album features a remake of the Jimi Hedrix tune Changes (named Them Changes on this album) off the Band of Gypsys album. I was skeptical at first, but man it rocks!
If you are a fan of the blues you must buy this album!

4.0 out of 5 stars The sound of some Rock & Roll masters "Live On" October 20, 2000
By Darren
Format:Audio CD
On the band's 3rd album, Kenny Wayne Shepherd continues to play some wicked electric guitar and prove he is a great songwriter too. Influenced by the styles of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Clapton, Hendrix, and the Allman Bros, this kid's rock & roll blues are raw, loud and generally highly charged. He even throws a few very well written ballads in the mix here. This is my type of rock & roll. Lead vocalist Noah Hunt, who has a voice beyond his years, adds to the jam, and together these guys rock throughout the entire CD. Although the CD is energetic, it doesn't even come close to the energy these boys generate in concert. (I'll reserve their five star rating for their release of a live album). Buy the CD first, THEN see them live.
The released singles "In Too Deep" and "Last Goodbye" are good but I like the intensity of the lyrics and the jam on a song called "Was" which features Kenny on a steel guitar. I'm hoping this song is the next released single.
I consider the music these guys play a tribute to some of the great rock & roll masters and Kenny Wayne certainly has the creative energy to sustain this musical blend of rock & roll blues. More studio time, time on the road and years of experience will allow their own individual style to evolve, so they can take the music where some of their influences didn't live to take it.

4.0 out of 5 stars more good ol' smokin licks November 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Kenny Wayne Shepherd has truly earned his spot in the blues world as a player and songsmith. HOT HOT playing, and slamming riffs make Shepherd shine on this record... let's see more Kenny, but let's move away from Albert King and SRV licks - start melding your own blues.... then you'd have something revolutionary and 5 starred.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blues! January 6, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Kenny has demonstrated his use of the "Wah" on his first two albums but in "Live On" he shifts his direction more towards the traditional blues with the "Slide". This album is a great balance of traditional Kenny and tradtional slide and will never get overwhelmed with all the songs sounding the same as with other blues guitarists around his age. Overall, great album!

3.0 out of 5 stars KWS is not there yet October 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
My initial impression of this disc is that KWS needs to learn the value of subtlety. Sometimes it sounds like a wall of sound. His first disc (Ledbetter Heights) sounded to me like he had a lot of stuff he needed to get out RIGHT NOW. It had a lot of tasty licks in it as well as volume. The second one (Trouble Is...) sounded like he was hitting his stride. This disc sounded like he sort of mailed it in. There's just too many needless overdubs that sound like they're there just to fill up space. I've seen him live and he doesn't need overdubs. He can fill up more than enough space by himself without overdubs. BTW, Noah Hunt can flat out sing. That boy just wails in concert. All this being said, I would rather listen to this disc than almost anything else out there. It's probably as much my problem looking for perfection in KWS and not finding it. This guy has so much talent and someday soon he will make the perfect kick ass blues record.
