At the corner of Honky-Tonk Highway and Bump 'n' Grind Boulevard, you'll find a churnin' urn of burnin' funk bubbling over with [i]file[/i] fever and Cajun cool; we call it swamp rock. Right on the swamp gas bubble between jump blues and early rock, Bobby Charles' self-penned, piano-poundin' hit "See You Later, Alligator" was recut by Bill Haley just weeks later and became a million-seller in the process. The gator rears his razor-toothed head again as Tony Joe White injects "Polk Salad Annie" with a double [i]chomp chomp[/i] shot of boondocks bite. The original Night Tripper, Mac Rebennack — better known these days as Dr. John — gets his [i]gris-gris[/i] on in the fuzz-drenched honk of "Storm Warning." And if you thought the reach of swamp rock stops at the edge of Lake Pontchartrain, think again: check out Atlanta native Jerry Reed's hunk of Creole funk, "Amos Moses," or Bay Area rockers Creedence Clearwater Revival, whose first hit was a cover of Dale Hawkins' "Suzie Q" and whose reverb-soaked voodoo casts a spell over "Born On the Bayou." All that swamp rock, and you say your boots are barely muddy? Don't worry — we've got lots more where that came from . . .
