A full-throated blues-belter with a relentlessly rhythmic keyboard touch, Katie Webster kept true to her Texas/Louisiana roots until her untimely passing in 1999. After a lengthy absence from performing, she roared back onto the concert circuit in the '80s before cutting her stellar comeback Swamp Boogie Queen. Never the shy type, Webster comes on strong with a batch of sweat-drenched, tear-stained R&B-boogie tunes. She bares her heart for torchy readings of "Try a Little Tenderness" and "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)," then vamps with a vengeance on "Whoo-Wee Sweet Daddy" and "Sea of Love." Lending support is an A-list of guest-stars, including Bonnie Raitt (her duet partner on "Sombody's On Your Case"), Robert Cray and the Fabulous Thunderbirds' Kim Wilson. Swamp Boogie Queen is the work of a rejuvenated artist who transforms the blues into pure musical joy.
