Kenny Wayne Shepherd Reviews Centennial Edition

Guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd has reviewed Robert Johnson’s “The Complete Original Masters: Centennial Edition,” noting “the clarity on this new collection is not to believed. The improvement is one of leaps and bounds. … The richness, raw emotion and pain that was in Johnson’s voice and the sound of his guitar playing – it’s all right there. Such a spooky vibe. Sonically, it’s a wonder.”

Shepherd wrote, “For a guy like me, listening to Robert Johnson is always quite humbling. When I pick up an acoustic guitar and I try to play the blues, the first guy I think of, always, is Robert Johnson. And it’s not like I’m trying to copy him; I’m just inspired by him. Truthfully, I’m not capable of copying him.”
