“In 2011, the Dallas Observer awarded "Big Gus" Samuelson the trophy for Best DJ. Samuelson does have an impeccable ear for great tunes and his low, Southern Barry White-ish speaking voice helps him excel in that realm on KHYI-FM 95.3. For years now, however, he has fronted one hell of a band, Swampadelic. By blending blues, zydeco and Western swing, Samuelson and his crew cover aural terrain that few area bands can. The Cajun flavor of his tunes comes naturally, as he was raised in Louisiana before making his way to Dallas many years ago. American Soul, his just-released solo effort, is a fantastic collection of primarily acoustic songs that are packed with, well, soul. Most of the songs are originals with a few re-worked numbers from Swampadelic's Paralngua album thrown in for great measure.”
— Kelly Dearmore, Dallas Observer
