Charlie Whitehead

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, August 1975

YOU CAN never keep a good man down and that old saying certainly applies to ol' Swamp Dogg! Over the past decade, there's hardly been a moment when you can honestly say he's quiet. It may not be Jerry Williams himself (that's the man's real name) that's hitting the headlines, it can be any one of a bunch of faithful followers whose name is attracting attention. And right now it's one of Jerry's most faithful disciples who can be found generating chart interest on both sides of the Atlantic – Charlie Whitehead.
