Synthetic World by Swamp Dogg – Modern Soul 45

Synthetic World b/w Total Destruction To Your Mind by Swamp Dogg - Modern Soul 45 on Canyon Records #53 "Hey You! I'm up from the Bayou, where wildlife runs free. You could say that I'm country, but let me tell you what I see. Your world is plastic, can see through to the other side." Jerry Williams Jr., also known as Swamp Dogg, may not have the best voice, but he makes up for it with his lyrics. Musically it's very pleasing to the ear with funky horns, nice mid-tempo drums and smooth rhodes piano or organ. I love how he cuts through the b.s. and says "So you see, my patience is growing thin, with this synthetic world we're living in". Lyrics that were definitely ahead of their time!
