Have you seen "10 Days Out"?
I'm guessing that you would really like it.

    Yup.      the 10 days out dvd is a must-see.     Great blues by largely unknown musicians teaming up with KWS.
There are some exceptional moments and lots of good guitar playing.    Surprisingly, the portions with the more well-known musicians like BB King and Gatemouth Brown are not the highlights.  Seeing  Etta Baker is a treat.   But the best moment for me was the little number with KWS and Buddy Flett;  "Honky Tonk Blues" .  I'm a sucker for a tasteful slide lick and Buddy doesn't disappoint.

 +1 I actually have both the CD and DVD. I just love Honky Tonk Lynn!! (Buddy Flett's voice reminds me of a very bluesy John Fogerty)

I will have to check out 10 days out.  Led Better Heights is a great album, I haven't listened to KWS in years since his lame 2nd album.  I'm sure he's matured since then.  I did see him twice, once opening for BB King and another in a bar in Providence.  He was very good both times.  If you like Led Better Heights, you will also like the Chris Duarte Group's 1st album, Texas Sugar Strat Magic.  I prefer his playing over KWS but everybody holds a candle to SRV.

Yeah - he actually does a song with BB King on "10 days out" too. I've also got "Trouble is" and "Live on" - Love it and Noah Hunt's vocals is just great.
Boy, you guys are really fortunate to be able to see these artists...    drool

I saw him recently at Guitar Center, it was very intimate setting.
Personally I like Robben Ford for blues, but he was very good.

Saw K.S in Flint , MI in the spring....watching him makes you want to work really hard to improve ones guitar skills....or make you quit.
