Yhe Kid Can Play
Some great covers on this one, especially Bob Dylan's "Everything is Broken". Johnny Lang and KWS burst on the circuit as kid wonders, but both had a different style: Lang's being more R&B while Shepherd leaned heavily into rock similar to Joe Bonamassa. Like its predecessor "Ledbetter Heights", this album does not feature Shepherd on vocals, but gives him plenty of room to cut loose on the guitar. "Blue on Black" is a true classic blues-rock recording. If you are missing this one from your inventory, be sure to add it. Kenny's newest stuff is mainstream rock and while it is very well done, I hope he always remembers his blues roots.
