Swamp Dogg :: The White Man Made Me Do It

by

swampdoggthewhitemanmademedooit-coverSwamp Dogg is terug! En hoe! Met The White Man Made Me Do It verbreekt hij op imponerende wijze een decennia-lange stilte. En de oude man is in topvorm. Strijdbaar, soms zelfs ronduit militant, maar ook ongekend grappig. Jaren zeventig funk, Southern soul, het is er allemaal. En de teksten over het lot van de zwarte man, geld en liefde zijn weer uitgesproken en gedurfd. Een meesterwerk dat nog extra kracht krijgt door de bonus-CD met hoogtepunten uit het vroege werk van de Dogg als solo-artiest en producer van onder andere Doris Duke, Irma Thomas en Z.Z. Hill. Hij bouwt met deze release een standbeeld voor zichzelf.

“The White Man Made Me Do It” is Swamp Dogg’s new album, and his first soul record in decades. Over the course of 14 songs, and with the help of a cast of veteran soul greats, the idiosyncratic performer re-captures the spirit of his 70’s cult recordings. “The White Man Made Me Do It” mixes classic Southern soul grooves with pointed, poignant lyrics, reflecting upon race, love, and money. As usual Swamp demonstrates his savage sense of humor and his instinctive aversion to hypocrisy.

Swamp Dogg is currently in the midst of a resurgence of interest in his work, coinciding with a new series of remastered reissues of his vintage albums, along with a selection of some of his most noteworthy production projects, including cult-classic releases by Doris Duke, Irma Thomas, Charlie Whitehead (aka Raw Spitt), Z.Z. Hill, Lightnin’ Slim, Wolfmoon and Sandra Phillips, all currently available on Alive Naturalsound.
