John Fogerty- Green River- rehearsal May 1997

Creedence Clearwater Revival were very busy this month 45 years ago. Their third album Green River had just been released, their first since the spectacular breakthrough of “Proud Mary”, and they were suddenly much in demand for TV appearances and concerts, including one outside Bethel NY called the Woodstock Festival. Decades later Creedence songwriter/ producer/ singer/ guitarist John Fogerty was rehearsing his band in front of a small studio audience when the band dug into the title song from that “Green River” album. –Redbeard
