Unsurprisingly, Little Freddie King pays homage to his idol Freddie king throughout Swamp Boogie. Little Freddie King hasn't recorded an album since the mid-'70s, but Swamp Boogie illustrates that he didn't spend the ensuing two decades just sitting around. While he doesn't stray far from the original Freddie King blueprint, he does play with grace and a bit of personality. The album isn't necessarily energetic, but it has its moments, even if during those moments you wish that he would let loose just a little bit more.
