USA Today wants you to listen up to Kenny Wayne Shepherd. In their weekly round-up of, as they put it, "spin-worthy current albums bubbling beneath the hyped hits" they've written a 3.5 star review on the KWS band's brand new live album.
Here's what they had to say: "Recorded on one lightning-struck night during Shepherd's 2007 tour, the first official live album from the platinum-selling blues-rock guitar slinger is generous in its combustibility, length (70-plus minutes), and contributions by esteemed blues vets — Hubert Sumlin, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Bryan Lee, Buddy Flett and Double Trouble's Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon. Five Shepherd originals (especially opener Somehow, Somewhere, Someway) mostly stack up against the covers of B.B. King, Jimmy Reed, Howlin' Wolf and others, and his band holds its own alongside the guest stars. Sure, there's some note-flurry excess, but it's furious, glorious excess."
