5.0 out of 5 stars Louisiana to Chicago - KWS Live (and well worth it!!), October 16, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live! In Chicago (Special Edition) (MP3 Music)
I had the privelege of being at one of the two live performances at the House of Blues in Chicago in 2007 that produced this excellent collection of songs. The concert was without question the best I've ever been to, over 3 hours of GREAT live blues and blues/rock. The audience was electric. We all knew that what we were witnessing was a once-in-a-lifetime show. The performers seemed to know and appreciate that they were participating in something very special as well, and having a grand time doing it. Hubert Sumlin, Willie Big Eyes Smith, Bryan Lee, Buddy Flett, and of course Kenny Wayne Shepherd with his longtime compadre Noah Hunt (oh yeah, and Double Trouble!!!) were there and in full force. This album is an excellent representation of that performance, and I highly recommend it for any blues fan. The breadth of styles and the generational span of the performers alone should give you some idea of what you are in for. There are grinding, Chicago-style blues numbers, upbeat and flavorful Louisiana-style blues (Bryan Lee), and of course, KWS own unique brand of driving blues-rock that he has made all his own. This recording is taken from the concert tour in support of Kenny's "10 Days Out: Blues From The Backroads". Check out the description of that item and you'll get a feel for this item as well. This is that, live, highly electrified, well-produced, and extremely satisfying. "King Bee" is alone worth the price. This is the first KWS live album to be released in his now 15+ year career, and the wait for this album has been worth it. Bottom line: Get it.

I didn't realize the concerts date clear back to '07. It's puzzling why it took so long for them to release it--informative review...thanks!
