Summary

Maverick soul artist Swamp Dogg (aka Jerry Williams) has been described as the "soul genius that time forgot", and "a strange combination of Sly Stone's progressive funk with Frank Zappa's lyrical absurdism". In the seventies he even made the famed Nixon's Enemies List. Here's how Swamp Dogg tells it: "Commencing in 1970, I sung about sex, niggers, love, rednecks, war, peace, dead flies, home wreckers, Sly Stone, my daughters, politics, revolution and blood transfusions (just to name a few), and never got out of character."

We are proud to bring you Swamp Dogg's first two albums, re-released for the very first time on vinyl since their original release.

"Rat On!" (1971), was ranked as having one of the top ten worst album covers of all time, an achievement that Swamp Dogg is rightfully proud of.

Vocally, Swamp Dogg sounds like a cross between General Johnson (of Chairmen of the Board) and Van Morrison; as a songwriter, he's his own man. With the exception of Sly Stone, no other soul men of the period were investigating controversial topics with such infectious musicality and good humor.
