“I’m Not Selling Out, I’m Buying In” by Swamp Dogg - album review

TJR says

LOL! Check that cover! Swamp Dogg, black man standing tall on a boardroom table, bedecked in resplendent white suit, complete with matching top hat and cane. Once again he’s looking down on the bemused boardroom’s natural inhabitants, all of whom happen to be white men dressed in dark suits. I guess these are the “low Friends in high places, just a bunch of devil’s wearing angel faces” that he sings about in the album. Any wise words (and he has quite a few) completely lose their impact on me, entirely due to the lame brand of funky session pop that’s on offer. Dire starter “Swamping Salutations” sets a fake Rock n Roll tone. Ouch. He seems to have turned into Meat Loaf. Any recovery from thereon is slight and not a single track packs a punch. It’s a sad day when the best thing about an album is its cover…
