Out of all the music from home videos these days, Fogerty & Family are my favorite I've seen so far.  It's a real joy to watch him with his kids.

I want that baseball bat guitar. 😳 A mixture of two of my very favorite things, music and baseball. You simply can’t get more American than John, a true original. I’m happy he played ‘Long As I Can See The Light’, which I ranted lovingly about on the previous page.

CCR had a great sound, definitely! Tony Joe White said that he always wondered why Fogerty let the others go, as they were such a good rhythm section. I guess in the end it was just personal issues. You listen to CCR today and they still sound as fresh as ever. Now, there are not many drummers who come close to Aronoff, but they don't nedd to, if the outcome is right.

Anyway, yes, Fogerty was/is one hell of a songwriter and musician. It's unbelievable what he put out during those couple of years. It's not unlike what Brian Wilson put out in '63-'64 (Beach Boys albums and singles, outside productions, co-writes) while touring at the same time. Talent, pure talent!
I must admit though, looking at Fogerty today, I liked him better when he was still bitter.
He still seems pretty bitter towards Cook and Clifford. He's a little kinder towards his brother Tom, probably because he's dead.


You're totally right. What I meant was this exaggerated happiness and positivity he shows nowadays. It really goes on my nerves because it seems so fake. And all that stupid hippie-stuff on his tour with the VW camper. Have you seen the Red Rocks show (I think it's called "My 50 year trip" or something to that effect) with all those cheap hippie wigs and lava lamps and the corny antics on stage? It just looks so ridiculous and in the mid of all is John Fogerty. The one person I never thought would go clownish.
 
No question he's still bitter toward Doug and Stu, but he was not as much opposed to a reunion as he once was and they now have a LLC and can approve new releases. That's good and if they ever can make peace with each other, than that's a great thing. It wasn't so much this bitterness that I was talking about. Even if they never play ttogether anymore, it would be nice to at least have some kind of conciliation now that they are all in their 70s

I agree about the fake happiness. Don't get him started about Julie. He still seems bitter underneath the fake smile; get him started about his former bandmates, and it's back to the bs about "Tom played one string guitar" and "I had to teach Stu how to play the bass".

I don't understand the negativity toward John Fogerty here.  I think most people would be bitter if they lost ownership of hit songs they wrote an people can be bitter for years before they put it behind them.  I know that's happened with me anyway so I wouldn't assume he is faking anything.  Anyway, a very nice performance by him today of City of New Orleans:

I don't think there's any negativity towards him, at least not from my side, and that is all I can talk about. I'm just saying that his way of acting in interviews and such seems kinda faked to my eyes. I know that I've acted similarly when I was trying to hold down certain things. It's just my interpretation. I also think that he seemed more real in earlier years.

I don't think anyone is denying that he was ripped off; I don't see anyone putting him down as a songwriter, singer, or guitarist. There were three other guys that helped him achieve his dream of rock and roll immortality, but to hear him tell it today, they impeded him instead of helping him. I don't believe that is true. With rock bands, there is a tendency to always focus on the frontman or lead singer, main songwriter, but a great singer and songwriter needs a good band backing him up. How great would Elvis been at Sun Records without Scotty and Bill there to play those songs? How good would The Beatles have been minus George and Ringo? Give credit where credit is due, that's all i'm asking.

Of course anyone can write their opinion on a discussion board.  I don't think he's faking being happy but I don't know him personally so can't say for sure.

On the main forum, there was a thread recently about Beach Boys covers.  I noticed Cotton Fields was released by the BB before the CCR version.  I wonder if the BB version might have inspired the CCR recording or if they were already working on the song independently.

I was wondering about that myself, since Fogerty liked the Beach Boys very much. On the other hand, "Cottonfields" was totally out of that type of music that CCR was based on. And the Boys' version was a big hit everywhere except the US, so I don't know if Fogerty was aware of it. During rehearsals of the movie "That's the way it is" in 1970 you can hear Elvis singing an impromptu version of it as well. Since he's using the original lyrics (as did CCR), I guess he had heard Creedence's recording and remembered the song.
So, it's hard to say. On one hand, it's a well known folk song, on the other hand two versions of the same song released so close to each other makes you wonder.


Somehing else BBs related: On Facebook Fogerty posted an excerpt from his book while talking about "Green river" and mentioned that he saw a TV ad in '67 that, at least in his mind, definitely featured the Beach Boys singing. This reminded me of reading that "Cool, cool water" was written for a commercial (I don't know if I got this right and if it was the Sunflower song or the early stages of it during '67). Did that ever come to fruition and was it this that Fogerty remembered hearing?

Totally unrecognized by me, last year marked the 50th anniversary of CCR. Since there's really nothing new to release and the surviving members still are on the outs, it seems that it turned not very spectacular. But anyway, here's some more info:

There's also a DVD companion. It was shown in german TV (minus a couple of songs). It was done as a 50th tribute to Woodstock I believe. Well, I love John's music and his live offerings are usually top. But this is a complete freak show imo. It's what his Vegas stint seems to have been like. Including background singers in hippie clothes and bad(!!) wigs. It's what you would think a caricature would look like (or a Nickelodeon hippie TV show) but I believe they are serious about this. I was not only disappointed but shocked that John would go this road. It's almost like John tries to make us believe he was a real Hippie. He still has a great band of course.

Better get the fantastic CCR at Woodstock CD. That one is a fantastic sounding album. Incredible!

This release was ok, although not as good as some of his other live releases he's put out in the last 25 years.  Premonition was pretty good as was The Long Road Home - In Concert.  He also put out the DVD Comin' Down The Road that had some deep cuts on there and a pretty smokin' live version of "The Old Man Down The Road". 

My favorite memory of him was when I saw him perform in the 90's and after the show a bunch of us were walking to our cars which we had to walk past the tour bus to get to.  As we walked by we saw him in the window and we all enthusiastically cheered as a "thank you" of sorts.  He responded by callously closing the window curtain and dismissing us completely.  I guess the show was over.   LOL

Yeah, based on the various interviews I've seen with him, I would say he's not exactly Mr. Warmth. John's always been a "me first" kind of guy; not dissing him as a talent, although his solo career hasn't exactly been prolific. I thought his Revival album from roughly 10 years ago was excellent.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

He still sounds amazing. Also, I saw him live on his 50th year trip tour and while I can understand that some didn't like that spectacle it was really cool in person.

I know it's 2021, but it still feels weird to me now that artists just put a song on social media, youtube, etc, and that's their new song. Not a 7 inch record, not a compact disc, just a song that anyone can click on and listen to for free.

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL’S PENDULUM AND MARDI GRAS SET FOR HALF-SPEED MASTERED 180-GRAM VINYL REISSUES


https://craftrecordings.com/blogs/news/creedence-clearwater-revival-s-pendulum-and-mardi-gras-set-for-half-speed-mastered-180-gram-vinyl-reissues


Craft Recordings continues the salute to the enduring musical legacy of Creedence Clearwater Revival with the release of half-speed mastered editions of the band’s two final albums: Pendulum, which was released exactly 50 years ago today (December 9, 1970), and their closing studio album, 1972’s Mardi Gras. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl and set for release February 12th, both records were mastered by the award-winning engineer Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios. Available for pre-order beginning today, these audiophile-quality LPs come housed in beautifully crafted jackets (tip-on gatefold for Pendulum and embossed for Mardi Gras), replicating the albums’ original packaging.

Pendulum, which marked CCR’s second release of 1970—following Cosmo’s Factory—was a unique title in the band’s catalog for several reasons. First, the album was the group’s sole LP to feature all original material. Typically, CCR sprinkled covers of blues songs, traditional material, and rock ‘n’ roll standards into each of their albums, putting their own spin on classic favorites. Pendulum also found the guitar-heavy group expanding their sonic palate—experimenting with new sounds (including the use of saxophones, vocal choirs, and keyboards) and even venturing into psychedelia.

The quartet’s musical explorations paid off. Not only was Pendulum a critical success, but it also spawned two global Top Ten hits: the reflective “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” and the upbeat “Hey Tonight.” The singles, released as a double A-side in 1971, peaked at No.8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other highlights included the stomper “Molina,” the bluesy “Pagan’s Groove” and the twangy “Sailor’s Lament.” Recently, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” gained renewed popularity with the 2018 launch of a new official music video featuring Sasha Frolova, Jack Quaid, and Erin Moriarty (the latter two also featuring in Amazon’s smash hit series, The Boys), introducing the song to a new generation. To date, the video has received over 61 million plays.
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s seventh and final studio album, 1972’s Mardi Gras, followed the departure of founding member and rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty. The album, however, found the remaining trio of musicians taking a more collaborative approach to songwriting. Prior to Mardi Gras, frontman John Fogerty was the band’s creative leader—writing, arranging, and producing the majority of every album. For Mardi Gras, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford not only penned many of the tracks (including Cook’s hard-driving “Door to Door,” and Clifford’s rollicking “Tearin’ Up the Country”) but also sang on them. Other highlights off the album include a cover of the rockabilly classic “Hello Mary Lou,” as well as the Fogerty-penned rocker “Sweet Hitch-Hiker”—a Top Ten hit in the US, Australia, Canada, and across Europe. The poignant “Someday Never Comes,” meanwhile, marked the group’s final single.

While the band members went their separate ways after Mardi Gras, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s legacy only continued to grow. Today, CCR remains one of the best-selling groups of all time, thanks to their trove of generation-defining hits and their singular, roots-rock sound.

Roughly half a century later, CCR fans can enjoy a new vibrancy when they revisit Pendulum and Mardi Gras, thanks to the exacting process of half-speed mastering. Using high-res transfers from the original analog tapes, the process involves playing back the audio at half its recorded speed while the cutting lathe is also turned to half the desired playback speed. The technique allows more time to cut a micro-precise groove, resulting in more accuracy with frequency extremes and dynamic contrasts. The result on the turntables is an exceptional level of sonic clarity and punch.

Both of these special pressings were previously released only as part of Creedence’s collectible, seven-LP The Studio Albums Collection box set, and follow standalone reissues of the band’s first five albums.
