Raunchy, satirical, political and profane, Swamp Dogg is one of the great cult figures of 20th century American music. The creation of Jerry Williams, Jr., an R&B producer and songwriter of the '60s, Swamp Dogg fit no tidy category. In sheer musical terms, Swamp Dogg is pure Southern soul, anchored on tight grooves and accentuated by horns, but the Dogg is as much about message as music. In 2013, Swamp Dogg received a considerable boost in profile when two of his albums, Total Destruction to Your Mind and Rat On!, were reissued.
