Alive Naturalsound Records is proud to bring you Swamp Dogg’s 1973 album Gag A Maggot, reissued for the very first time on vinyl since its original release. Featuring an excellent cover of Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" and the love song "I Couldn't Pay for What I Got Last Night."

"Thematically, this seems to be a fairly conventional soul LP - great cover of In the 'Midnight Hour' and lots of love and money in the lyrics. Granted, 'Wife Sitter' is as nasty as Jody songs get, mostly because Dogg plays the cuckold-making Jody with such relish. And to call your sweeest love song 'I Couldn't Pay for What I Got Last Night' is to combine the two themes more intimately than most soul men consider necessary. Nor do most soul men drive so hard - Ivan Olander's drums, Little Beaver's guitar, even the horns of the Swamp Dogg Band maintain a fierce momentum thatÍs not conventional at all." - Robert Christgau (Dean Of American Rock Critics)
