Creedence Clearwater Revival-Bayou Country-Green River-Willy & Poor Boys-John Fogerty

Very rare interview with John Fogerty, who wrote and sang every Creedence Clearwater Revival song, played lead guitar & great chunky rhythm guitar, and produced every CCR album. When my parents could finally afford a little monaural record player, Bayou Country  with its “Proud Mary” and“Born on the Bayou” was among the first albums I ever bought. Their follow up Green River album contained even more hits, including “Bad Moon Rising”,”Lodi“, and “Green River”, plus the song which serves as the title to Fogerty’s all-star tribute, Wrote a Song for Everyone . And completing the mind-boggling hat trick by Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1969, Willy & the Poor Boys  included the singalong”Down on the Corner” as well as the righteously indignant “Fortunate Son“! As popular and admired by fans and other musicians as Creedence Clearwater Revival was, it is safely said that no one has ever sounded quite like CCR. –Redbeard
