    In the post-Otis Redding R&B world of the early 1970s, Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams emerged as one of the true originals of American soul, with a left-of-center, often political bent that still left plenty of room for impassioned vocal performances. But before he became the Dogg, Williams was a producer for a variety of labels in the `60s, and BLAME IT ON THE DOGG cherry-picks some of the finest examples of his work in that capacity, including tunes by icons like Gene Pitney, Gary U.S. Bonds, and Z.Z. Hill as well as more obscure artists (Tommy Hunt, Eleanor Grant, Little Charles & the Sidewinders). Put these alongside some early (mostly pre-Dogg) cuts by Williams himself, and you've got a captivating portrait of the Dogg's early career on both sides of the microphone.

    Record Collector (magazine) (p.93) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[H]ighpoints are many and include the belting anthemic C & The Shells' 'On Your Way Home' from 1969..."
