Listen to the song.
| Swamp Dogg is really Jerry Williams, a soul and R&B singer, musician, songwriter and record producer. Williams is one of the great cult figures of 20th Century American music.
After recording as Little Jerry and Little Jerry Williams in the 1950s and 1960s, he reinvented himself as Swamp Dogg, releasing a series of satirical, offbeat, and eccentric recordings, as well as continuing to write and produce for other musicians. He debuted his new sound on the TOTAL DESTRUCTION TO YOUR MIND album in 1970. Williams' new direction apparently followed an LSD trip, and was inspired by the radical politics of the time as well as by Frank Zappa's use of satire, while showing Jerry's own expertise in, and commitment to, deep soul and R&B music.
In the 1980s, Jerry helped to develop Alonzo Williams' World Class Wreckin' CRU, which produced Dr. Dre.
In 1999, Swamp Dogg’s SLOW SLOW DISCO was sampled by Kid Rock, sparking a revival of interest in Swamp Dogg, who began performing live gigs for the first time. Several other of his recordings have been sampled. And Swamp Dogg continues to release music.
