365 Days of Album Recommendations – Oct 15

Creedence Clearwater Revival – Creedence Clearwater Revival

Just finished reading “Fortunate Son” by John Fogerty, so am now on a full-blown CCR Bender. I already recommended “Green River” earlier in this series, but will know start at “the beginning” with the official debut of CCR.

Here, of course, we see many hints of things to come:

  • the overall CCR sound
  • CCR’s uncanny way with a cover tune
  • some killer songwriting

We also get some things we’ll see much less of later:

  • extended Fogerty guitar solos
  • less-than-perfect songwriting

All in all, a great debut, and the beginning of an incredible few years of rock n’ roll history.
