Rat On! — Swamp Dogg

John Morthland, Creem, June 1971

Swamp Dogg don’t fuck around. Besides writing or co-writing (many with U.S. Bonds) eight of the album’s 10 songs, he arranged produced, played piano, did the vocals and background vocals, "and everything else of any importance." What’s more, he did a really fine job in every aspect.
