Re-released for the first time on vinyl since its original release in 1973!
“This album is so funky that it’ll gag a maggot and drown a drop. Due to the fact that a maggot is the funkiest thing on earth; if this LP can make him gag which it already has, no telling what it’ll do to your funny ass …”.
“Thematically, this seems to be a fairly conventional soul LP — great cover of ‘In the Midnight Hour’ and lots of love and money in the lyrics. Granted, ‘Wife Sitter’ is as nasty as Jody songs get, mostly because Dogg plays the cuckold-making Jody with such relish. And to call your sweeest love song ‘I Couldn’t Pay for What I Got Last Night’ is to combine the two themes more intimately than most soul men consider necessary. Nor do most soul men drive so hard — Ivan Olander’s drums, Little Beaver’s guitar, even the horns of the Swamp Dogg Band maintain a fierce momentum that’s not conventional at all.”
