365 Days of Album Recommendations – Oct 16

Creedence Clearwater Revival – Bayou Country


My CCR kick continues with the sophomore release. What else can be said but, what a leap forward! This is the beginning of one of the great songwriting runs of all time. Born on the Bayou and Proud Mary are of course timeless classics, and were immediately recognizable as such from the moment they arrived.

Mind you, some good deep tracks here as well, including the rather underrated Graveyard Train, and Keep on Chooglin’, which includes the following classic lyric:

Here comes Mary lookin’ for Harry
She gonna choogle tonight
Here comes Louie, works in the sewer
He gonna choogle tonight

CCR is pickin’ up serious steam by album #2, and about to hit warp levels …
