The late Tony Joe White's 70s/80s adventures in fusing blues-y swamp rock with disco and funk never met much success, and he's better known as a songwriter - he penned 'Rainy Night In Georgia', for instance. Here, though, 1983's 'Swamp Rap' becomes 'Country Rap', and the result is a slightly novelty-esque but truly distinctive-sounding funk slab. Fred Wesley's 'House Party' and The Chi-Lites' 'Bottoms Up' get similarly funked up as 'Gonna Have A Party' and 'Turn The House Down', respectively, while 'Other Sight' draws from sources unknown but has a go-go feel. 'Country Rap' is the one that'll really prick up ears on the dancefloor, though.
