Classic 1971 Album On Limited Edition Clear Blue Vinyl LP!

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.

Total Destruction To Your Mind (1970), has been called "one of the most gloriously gonzo soul recordings of all time." 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, and Gag A Maggott (1973), is one of Swamp Dogg's favorite records.

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.
-Richie Unterberger, AllMusic.com, 4.5/5 stars
