Kenny Wayne Shepherd's Got A 'Spoonful' Of Blues

And he's got Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble rhythm section and producer Jerry Harrison along for the ride. has all the action on their site.

Then be sure to whirl on over to Barnes and Noble's Exclusive Version of the album featuring 2 bonus tracks.

The Blue on Black bluesman duets with the legendary B.B. King as well as other progenitors of the genre in surefire flair and roughness. And since we're all about music and righteousness here on AtD (both in the Bill and Ted as well as charitable sense) read on:

The historical significance of the project is pointed up by the fact that six of the musicians featured here have subsequently passed away, including Etta Baker (whose "Knoxville Rag" is one of the set's most affirming cuts), Townsend, and Wild Child Butler, all of whom are represented by their last recordings and video footage. 10 Days Out is more than just an "important" collection, however. It's a palpably visceral experience, one that perfectly captures the battle between the sacred and profane that rages within the best blues music. The B&N Exclusive version of the package is rounded out by a two-song bonus disc highlighted by the late Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's spry, sneakily stinging "Dollar Got the Blues." A portion of the proceeds from 10 Days Out will benefit the Music Maker Relief Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps southern musicians gain recognition and provides for the artists' day-to-day needs. - David Sprague
You really can't go wrong with that. Rock and roll til' ya can't feel no more pain 'nmore.
