KMA2619 Kenny Wayne Shepherd – Trouble Is

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 18: Sonic Boom #4: Kenny Wayne Shepherd  – Trouble Is

Here’s another one I rescued from the Sonic Boom clearance bin. Shepherd is another who, like Jonny Lang, started out in his career young (he was 20 when this, his second album, was released. He was 18 for his first album). The hit here was Blue On Black. Others were Slow Ride, Somehow, Somewhere, Someway, and Everything Is Broken, a cover of Bob Dylan. He also covers Jimi Hendrix with I Don’t Live Today. Interestingly, this album went gold and platinum by 1999…

… which is interesting, to me, because I struggled a bit with this album. It was recorded like a wall of sound. I had some good headphones on, and I struggled to seperate the instruments sometimes – and usually I can distinguish things easily. This is a production issue, though, no comment on Shepherd’s blues attack. It still sounds good, don’t get me wrong. Lots of strong songs here, I just wish it was simpler, and balanced differently.


Hit It Or Quit It? Hit for now, will see if I go back to it in future.
