✨✧ Jerry Williams (Swamp Dogg)Little Jerry Williams Anthology – 1954 to 1969 ... CD
SDEG, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great trip through the early years of Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams – a motherlode of early R&B and soul singles that show Williams as a really well-developed artist even before his 70s Swamp Dogg fame! The styles here are a bit more conventional than later years – less rootsy southern soul, and more urbane modes that echo the styles of Jackie Wilson, Ben E King, and other bigger-name male vocal acts of the time – no copycat mode, but a different sound for Swamp than in later years – sung with a beautifully raspy vocal style that's totally great! CD features a whopping 28 tracks in all, plus a huge set of notes penned by Swamp on his early years in music – 18 pages of biographical material that are almost as entertaining as the music itself. Titles include "HTD Blues", "I'm So Mad", "Let's Do The Wobble", "Detroit", "The Push Push", "1965 Kingsize Nicotine Blues", "She's So Devine", "Sock It To Yourself", "Your Man", "Run Run Roadrunner", "I'm In The Danger Zone", "Baby Bunny Sugar Honey", and "If You Ask Me".

✨✧ Swamp DoggI Called For A Rope And They Threw Me A Rock ... LP
SDEG/Ichiban, 1989. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
I Called For A Rope. . .is a much later effort, from the end of the 80s – finding the Dogg experimenting with drum machines and other period elements –- although his vocals are as sly and satircal as ever! Titles include "I'd Lie For Your Love", "Come To LA", "We Need A Revolution", "Shut Your Mouth" and "1958". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Swamp DoggHave You Heard This Story ... CD
Island/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Swamp Dogg on Island Records – still recording in the early 70s, but already part of the surprisingly long legacy for the alter ego of southern soul giant Jerry Williams! Williams works here with a great core band that features guitar from Travis Wammack – in a style that's a bit funky, but which mixes in some bluesy elements with deep soul – moving between tunes that have some of Swamp's heavier politics, and others with a bit more of a down home vibe. There's a few nice southern soul moments – thanks to production at Broadway Studios, in Sheffield, Alabama – and titles include "God Ain't Blessing America", "When He Was No One", "I Wanna Lifetime Of Loving You", "I Wouldn't Leave Here To Go To Heaven", "Chewed UP Grass", and "The Mind Does The Dancing While The Body Pulls The Strings".

Doris DukeI'm A Loser (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Canyon/Alive, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.99
Doris Duke's no loser at all – certainly not with a record this great – a killer set of deep soul tracks that may well stand as the singer's finest moment ever! Doris works here at a level that rivals all the best southern-tinged singers of her generation – Aretha Franklin, Ann Peebles, and others – and also gets some key help from Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams in the studio – who helps give the record a raw undercurrent, linking it to the best Stax Records material of the time. Duke sometimes brings a sophisticated twist to the vocals, which is nicely appreciated – and which keeps everything far from the realm of cliche – on titles that include "I Don't Care Anymore", "He's Gone", "To The Other Woman (I'm The Other Woman)", "Divorce Decree", "We're More Than Strangers", and "The Feeling Is Right".

Brooks O'DellI'm Your Man – The Anthology 1963 to 1972 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A tremendous singer – finally getting his due! Brooks O'Dell may not be one of the best-known names in 60s soul, but he's got a really incredible voice – one we'd rank right up there with Walter Jackson, Garnet Mimms, and other shining stars of that generation. His approach often has the same mixture of sweet and sad that you'll find in the work of Walter Jackson – but with some of the rougher edges that you might hear in the music of that other 60s Jackson named Chuck – and like both of those singers, O'Dell's backings often blend full strings with tighter rhythms, in a mode that's top-shelf professional, but still deeply personal and soulful. This much-needed CD pulls together Brooks' 60s singles for labels that include Gold, Scepter, Bell, Columbia, and Valentine – then adds in a full album recorded for Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams in the early 70s, most of which was never issued at the time! These later tracks have a bit more of a southern soul approach, but still all the maturity and class of before – and as usual for Kent, the CD comes with a huge booklet of notes that finally tells the full story of O'Dell's career. 26 titles in all – including "I'm Your Man", "Walk On By", "Shirley Remember Me", "Soul Serenade", "If I Had You", "You Better Make Up Your Mind", "The Lively Ones", "Standing Tall", "I Got What It Takes (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Now You Are Gone", "Nothing's The Same Without You", "Everybody's Friend Nobody's Lover", "Predicament #2", "Is It Real", "Got To Travel On", "Don't Want To Hear It Anymore", and "Turn My World Around".
