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 '70s he even made the famed Nixon's Enemies List.
Alive Naturalsound Records will bring you Swamp Dogg's first two albums, newly remastered and re-released for the very first time on vinyl since their original release in the early '70s. Total Destruction To Your Mind (1970), has been called "one of the most gloriously gonzo soul recordings of all time," while 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 to this day.
The two remastered reissues of Swamp Dogg's early '70s albums Total Destruction To Your Mind and Rat On! will be available on Black Vinyl and CD on March 5th. In addition, there will also be a very limited pressing of Colored Vinyl for both albums exclusive to mailorders through Bomp.
