Product Details


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.

"Total Destruction To Your Mind" (1970), has been called "one of the most gloriously gonzo soul recordings of all time".

The title track is a slam-bangin' chunk of rock and funk that's pushed by a great session band including guitarist Jesse Carr and drummer Johnny Sandlin, and is easily Dogg's finest moment on record. But the rest of this is great too, ranging from the consumer nightmare "Synthetic World" to the paternity blues of "Mama's Baby, Daddy's Maybe."

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.
