SWAMP DOGG - I Need A Job... So I Can Buy More Auto-Tune - In 1954, 12 year old Jerry Williams, then performing under the name Little Jerry Williams, made his first recording for Mechanic Records, a blues stomp with a shockingly mature vocal performance. Through the 60's Williams' career developed with a number of successful singles, including "I'm the Lover Man" and "Baby You're My Everything", as well as writing and producing hits for Dee Dee Warwick, Doris Duke, and Patti LaBelle and the Blue Belles. - At 78, Swamp Dogg is as sharp of a singer and songwriter as ever. His raunchy yet charismatic sense of humor takes a more forward role on I Need a Job... So I Can Buy More Autotune, with earnestly delivered lyrics about all day sex and an entire song dedicated to the perils of "Cheating in the Daylight." Many of the record's most charming moments emerge from the juxtaposition of Swamp's left field humor with genuine messages of love, such as "She Got That Fire", which weaves descriptions of imagined sex acts, including but not limited to an encounter involving edible underwear, in between relatively wholesome proclamations like "she must be an angel on earth, " and "when she looks at you, it's like sunshine from her eyes." I Need a Job... does more than prove that Swamp's still got it, it proves he's still getting better.
