From a chance meeting at a Super Bowl jam session, Stephen Stills invited Kenny Wayne Shepherd to join him for an homage to his legendary "Super Session" Album. Musically, it was close to love at first sight, or perhaps first riff! What started as a fun idea turned into a year-long project, with songwriting woodshedding and of course, explosive guitar playing by two of the all time greats with production by Talking Heads alumn Jerry Harrison. Stephen has not sounded so good since his CSN & Y glory days with "Don't Want Lies" and "Only Teardrops Fail". He also contributes "Word Game" - a vintage Buffalo Springfield politico anthem. Kenny Wayne who entered the scene as a great white hope of the blues at age 15 almost 20 years ago, has matured into the best player of his generation. He even sings and sounds fantastic. Check out the guitar interplay on "Honey Bee" (with Barry Goldberg's fabulous piano) on "Talk To Me Baby" and Neil Young's classic "Rockin' In The Free World". With Stills, Shepherd, and Goldberg joining forces to create the supergroup, The Rides, the sky's the limit!
,,Ihre gemeinsamen Leidenschaften sind alte Autos und der Blues, den sie hier mit Spielfreude und Respekt vor der Historie feiern, verpackt in einen warmen und unverfremdeten Studiosound." (stereoplay, September 2013)
,,Das Trio zelebriert Uptempo-Songs voll zackiger Gitarrensoli ebenso wie genüssliche Slow-Motion-Nummern (...). Auch der knackige, tonal ausgewogene Klang kann überzeugen - aufgenommen wurde auf 2-inch-Analogtape." (Audio, September 2013)
