“The soul genius that time forgot” (The Guardian), R&B singer and pianist Swamp Dogg, aka Jerry Williams, has a talent matched only by his unabashed eccentricity, which both come to a remarkable head on his 1970 masterpiece, Total Destruction to Your Mind. With a style evocative of Wilson Pickett, he’s just as well described as “some unfrozen Atlantic soul man of the sixties—his voice clarion pure, his phrasing a model of smoldering restraint” (Rolling Stone).
