Pleasant enough, but suffers from the overbusy production and the overdone by the numbers BW harmonies.  Sometimes less is more.


I agree with this. Some of Brian's solo works suffer from that.
Anyway, this one is a nice tune. It doesn't blow me away as "Some sweet day" (although I knew that one already from bootlegs). But yeah, keep going, Brian!

I was struck at how weird John is starting to look - the hair dyed, the face looking slightly plastic.


I agree. All in all it looks like John's career tends more and more to the conservative/Nashville-establishment wing; and the clean cut look just adds to that assumption imo.
Anyway, this was just linked on facebook:



John Fogerty Signs With BMG For New Album, Solo Reissues: Exclusive

http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/7966018/john-fogerty-bmg-new-album-solo-reissue



I'd be interested if his 70s solo singles will be available at one point.

So, this short documentary comes from 2015 and is about the CCR member's current relationship and of course includes the question about a possible reunion. There's a nice surprise at the end of the dosumentary sort of re-unite in "sound". Watch here:

https://au.tv.yahoo.com/plus7/sunday-night/features/a/29706004/the-true-and-sad-story-of-creedence-clearwater-revival/

After reading John's book, I'd think the chance of a reunion are pretty slim. 


The docu from above was filmed after the book came out. But of course that doesn't mean very much.
I guess a reunion would happen if Fogerty wants it. There's so much money in it that it would be hard for Stu and Cosmo to say no; that is of course if Clifford's health will improve - get well!

I haven't read the book. Can you recommend it?

Sounds like Brian's 90s singing (and track with overdubs*). Nice, nice, nice!!!

Wow!!

Various: At The Louisiana Hayride Tonight (20-CD)


VARIOUS ARTISTS
At The Louisiana Hayride Tonight

20-CD boxed set (LP-size) with 224-page hardcover book (LP-size), 559 tracks. Total playing time 1,506:37 mns.

AT THE LOUISIANA HAYRIDE TONIGHT  - 
HANK WILLIAMS, ELVIS PRESLEY, JOHNNY CASH, JIM REEVES, JOHNNY HORTON, GEORGE JONES, WEBB PIERCE, JUNE CARTER, FRANKIE MILLER, FARON YOUNG, and many more.


These 20 CDs comprise over 25 hours of music captured on-stage in the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s at KWKH’s legendary Louisiana Hayride radio show. Staged live in Shreveport, the Hayride featured national country music stars, soon-to-be legends, regional break-outs, and talented newcomers.
Most of this music has not been heard since the day it was broadcast.

FABULOUSLY RESTORED SOUND!

•   529 ‘live’ tracks including previously unknown recordings by Hank Williams.

•   11 ‘as live’ studio-recorded transcriptions, including Kitty Wells, Johnnie and Jack, Hank Williams, and Curley Williams.

•   19 studio-recorded commercial discs, including hits by Slim Whitman, the Browns, Mitchell Torok, Jim Reeves, Mac Wiseman, and Carolyn Bradshaw.

•   167 artists in total, including Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Johnny Horton, Webb Pierce, Faron Young, Jim Reeves, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Rose Maddox, Frankie Miller, Cousin Emmy, June Carter, Roy Acuff, the Bailes Brothers, the Oklahoma Wranglers, Norma Jean, the Browns, the Carlisles, the Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Newman, Ray Price, Roger Miller, Ferlin Husky, Warren Smith, Wynn Stewart, Grandpa Jones, Rusty and Doug Kershaw, Slim Whitman, and the Wilburn Brothers.

•   Hayride regulars including James O’Gwynn, Curley Williams, Red Sovine, Betty Amos, Harmie Smith, Buddy Attaway, Margie Singleton, Tony Douglas, Jack Ford, Werly Fairburn, Jeanette Hicks, Goldie Hill, Tibby Edwards, Hoot and Curley, Martha Lynn, Claude King, David Houston, Jerry Jericho, Bob Luman, Jimmy and Johnny, Merle Kilgore, Jimmy Martin, Johnny Mathis, Jimmy Lee, Charlie Walker, Billy Walker, and Dee Mullin.

•   All backed by the ultra-talented Hayride staff bands, including Felton Pruett, Jimmy Day, Floyd Cramer, Sonny Trammell, James Burton, D. J. Fontana, Shot Jackson, Sonny Harville, Dobber Johnson, Buffalo Yount, Don Davis, and Tillman Franks.


Time was when the Louisiana Hayride show at the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, Louisiana was the place for country music fans to be on a Saturday night. Just sixty cents for adults (thirty for kids) bought the finest night’s entertainment anytime, anywhere.

This set is a front-row seat as Hank Williams takes to the stage, first as a relative newcomer and later as a troubled superstar. Elvis Presley brings rockabilly to the airwaves before anyone knew what he or his music was about. A parade of home-grown and out-of-town country hitmakers tussle with one another for encores, and encourage unknown newcomers who would wow the audience with their songs and performances most nights.
This is the first time the true magic of the iconic Louisiana Hayride has been revealed through extended excerpts from the three-hour Saturday night shows held every week from 1948 to 1960 and occasionally thereafter.

These long-buried musical performances are brought to life in chronological order interspersed with some of the announcements, intros, ads, comedy routines and mistakes that went to make up a live show in those days. Not least, we can hear Elvis Presley’s epoch-changing music as it was originally heard--as part of a country variety show.

Eighteen CDs chronicle the weekly Hayride. Two bonus CDs sample some of the post-1960 shows together with commercial recordings made in the KWKH radio studios, promotional discs and transcribed shows from KWKH’s early days.

More Than 24 Hours Of Original Live Recordings

ELVIS - The Seven Ages of Elvis - (NEW Documentary 2017)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5GFO7zPA14


European pay-TV operator Sky Arts has commissioned a new documentary from Fireball TV and copro and distributor Raydar Media about the legendary singer Elvis Presley.

The Seven Ages of Elvis goes on a search to explore who Presley was and his impact on pop culture. Using Shakespeare’s “Seven Ages of Man” as a framework, the film examines his life act by act: from his impoverished childhood in the American South, through his rise to international fame, to his Las Vegas years and his death in 1977.

Combining archive material with personal testimonies from those who knew Presley best, the film sheds new light on his global success and asks why audiences are still drawn to him decades after his death. The doc is slated to premiere this year as to mark the 40th anniversary of the singer’s passing.

The Seven Ages of Elvis was commissioned by Barbara Lee, commissioning editor, Sky Arts. David Upshal is the producer and director; Alison Rayson, executive producer; Iris Maor, head of production; and Will Yates, producer.

Smithsonian Channel to Present the Story of the U.S. in AMERICA IN COLOR; Liev Schreiber Narrates

The expansive series takes viewers on a visually stunning journey through American history - including fascinating footage of illegal drinking in speakeasies during the 1920s, rare home movies of President Franklin D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression, scenes of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Elvis Presley's television debut on the Ed Sullivan Show, and the Nixon-Kennedy debate. Using revolutionary methods in footage restoration and colorization, AMERICA IN COLOR accurately restores and colorizes archival black-and-white visuals from the early part of the 20th century up through the '60's. Filmmakers meticulously researched original colors to confirm the correct tones from each era and used source materials from obscure archives and forgotten family vaults.


http://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwtv/article/Smithsonian-Channel-to-Present-the-Story-of-the-US-in-AMERICA-IN-COLOR-Liev-Schreiber-Narrates-20170630


I wonder if this will be Elvis' first appearance on Ed Sullivan's show or his actual debut on TV which happened on the Dorsey Bros. Stage Show.




It's a decade many consider to be America's glory years, despite fearful conflicts at home and abroad. Join us as we revisit the 1950s, when families reaped unprecedented riches, teens discovered rock 'n' roll, and a nation found itself in the throes of civil unrest and on the losing end of the Space Race. Through digital colorization, we present the most significant moments of this incredible decade like they've never been shown before, including the Korean War, the Little Rock Nine, Elvis Presley, and more.


https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/tv-schedule?tvScheduleDate=20170723




Here's the colorized Elvis footage. Thanks to the FECC forum:
