Jerry Williams recorded several hit records in the 1950s and 60s, before re-christening himself Swamp Dogg at the end of the latter decade. His albums, starting with 1969's "Total Destruction to Your Mind" merged social concerns, humor and the psychadelic spirit of the times into a beloved chapter in soul music history. When Swamp wasn't recording himself, he wrote hit records for artists like Betty Wright and even country star Johnny Paycheck. His new album, "Resurrection," has received rave reviews in The New Yorker and Rolling Stone.
