"Jerry Williams, Jr. was a successful R&B and soul songwriter and producer who was relatively content with a behind-the-scenes career...until he sampled LSD toward the end of the '60s. His mind blown by psychedelics, Williams decided he needed another outlet for his creativity, so he became Swamp Dogg, a gnarly alter-ego obsessed with sex, class, drugs, politics, and anything that was crude. All the various undercurrents of the counterculture of the late '60s and early '70s, then, but the twist on Swamp Dogg's 1970 debut Total Destruction to Your Mind is how he channels all these obsessions into the framework of deep southern soul. Sure, there are elements of rock, funk, even country -- wah-wah guitars whack away over hard four-on-the-floor beats, and Dogg covers an inordinate number of Joe South songs -- but all this flair essentially functions as an accessory on hard, gritty, southern soul in the tradition of Muscle Shoals." - All Music Guide
