ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/Songwriter/Producer, Swamp Dogg has had a varied career, during which his work has resulted in hits for other artists but rarely for himself.

Recording at first as “Little Jerry,” Jerry Williams began in the ‘50’s as a soul singer. By the middle of the next decade, he had scored a couple of minor hits, “I’m a Lover Man” and “Baby You’re My Everything.” In 1970 he became chief producer for Wally Roker’s Canyon Records, where he was encouraged to stretch out musically, and therefore became Swamp Dogg. Under that name he released Total Destruction To Your Mind, a psychedelically eccentric soul album influenced by Sly and the Family Stone and the Mothers of Invention. “Mama’s Baby, Daddy’s Maybe” was a minor hit (#33 R&B, 1970), and Swamp Dogg began incorporating touches of bayou style a la Tony Joe White. Williams then signed with Elektra, but Rat On! Was was a commercial and artistic failure. In 1972 he moved to Cream Records and released Cuffed, Collared and Tagged which included a tribute to Sly Stone called “If It Hadn’t Been for Sly” and the John Prine song “Sam Stone.” Soon after the album's release, Cream went out of business.

As a producer, Jerry Williams fared better. He wrote Gene Pitney's 1968 hit "She's a Heartbreaker" and produced the Commodores'
first single, "I Keep On Dancing," while an Atlantic staff member, and Doris Duke's Top 10 soul hit, "I'm the Other Woman to the Other Woman," in 1970. In 1971 his song "She's All I Got" was a Top 40 pop hit for Freddy North and a #1 country song for Johnny Paycheck. Williams also had soul hits sung by Z.Z. Hill, Irma Thomas and Charlie Whitehead.

Still Swamp Dogg struggled, although he released several records through the '70's. In the late '80's he formed the S.D.E.G. label and management company, which had a measure of success with the rappers M.C. Breed & DFC, whose self-titled album made the R & B Top 40. Dogg continued to release his own material as well, most notably The Re-Invention of Swamp Dogg, a calypso album recorded in Trinidad. The Swamp Dogg sound found new ears as well when Kid Rock, on his multiplatium Devil Without a Cause, sampled Dogg's "I Got One For Ya."

It's March 2007 and Swamp Dogg has just released a new CD masterpiece entitled, "Resurrection." Columnists, reviewers, and music programmers who have heard this album have hailed it the "greatest album of his career" since "Total Destruction to Your Mind," his first release.

Swamp Dogg Rules!
Swamp Dogg is the king if you ask me. He'll take you places you've never been before.

Graham Simmen

Excellent CD, Swamp's high standard is surpassed!
Excellent CD with song writing quality that we expect from Swamp. Good rhythm section and a horn section too which is so rare and very welcome nowadays.At about 78 minutes it is great value and it is good to see Swamp exceeding expectations. Whatevever Next?!?

Rudolf

...and on the third day he rose again...
The Dogg has risen! Unmistakable vocals, piano and backing arrangements make the wait well worthwhile. Songs such as "They Crowned An Idiot King", "Resurrection" and "America Is Bleeding" show that his outspoken political comment has lost none of its bite. The controversial cover art is the icing on the cake.
The Dogg has risen, long live the Dogg!
