Notes

Lovable Katie Webster had some high-profile help for this impressive comeback album — Bonnie Raitt shares the vocal on “Somebody’s on Your Case” and plays guitar on “On the Run”; Kim Wilson duets with Webster for a cover of Johnnie Taylor’s “Who’s Making Love” (a track that Robert Cray contributes crisp guitar to). Throughout, Webster’s vocals are throatier than they used to be (she soulfully covers one-time mentor Otis Redding’s “Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa [Sad Song]” and “Try a Little Tenderness”), while her driving left hand still lays down some powerhouse boogie rhythms.
