Swamp Dogg, Bobby Patterson, Vera Lee

Swamp Dogg and Bobby Patterson are two wild cats whose tag-team billing represents a funk-soul summit of rare and arousingly apocalyptic proportions. Swamp Dogg, of course, has been flipping lids since the late 1960s with his brilliant, biting brand of psych-funk philosophizing, while esteemed Texas soul shaman Patterson has been raising temperatures and stopping hearts for just as long. Even more appealing, each roars in with a superb new album: Dogg’s characteristically provocative study on matters of race, The White Man Made Me Do It, and Patterson’s penetrating, achingly perfected I Got More Soul. No one’s resting on any musty old laurels, and when you mix in a special appearance by Vera Lee, Swamp Dogg’s 91-year-old mama, this gig assumes unparalleled, triple-whammy proportions.
