That’s a cool story, Rockin Maniac.
Creedence at first was a tough cookie to chew for our old folks at home, but over time, hearing those Creedence songs being played over and over on our little turntables converted the most steadfast old timer.
Rock and Roll was a force to be reckon’d with!!!
My older sis adored Led Zepplin and I love them too,…[Read more]
This just aired 5 minutes ago on the popular TV Talent Show, America’s Got Talent.
There’s a couple called, BLUE JOURNEY that do a new-age sort of dance with a backscreen that is lit up with dark, saturated colors and shapes that move. The man and the woman dance to the movement on the screen, creating a haunting sort of dance imagery that is…[Read more]
Very well possible Dan, but why would John approve something that doesn’t sound right to be released ?
We all know he’s such a perfectionist.
There probably were acetates, there were test pressings, there were promo’s,
enough time to hear that it’s not a good sounding record and withdraw it.
I wasn’t there, so I’m just guessing :
Kenny Aronoff (drums), Shane Fogerty (guitar), Devon Pangle (guitar) , James Lomenzo (bass).
Bob Malone (keyboards) wasn’t there as he’s touring the UK right now.
If I remember correctly I think that Jake Rohrer once said that the aural distortion of the record was
intentional because John wanted to make a record which had a rougher sound than the slickly produced records by Elton John and other artists of that time.
The sound may also have been reflective of John’s growing concern over his

Revenge is a dish best served cold!!!
You jogged my memory about a story about my old pop – my 2 sisters and I adored CCR and played their music every single day at home….. he and my maw were into Lawrence Welk a,nd they didn’t really like Creedence. But one evening, we were spinning the Creedence album on our little…[Read more]
Excellent thoughts there, Mr SKY!!! (AKA: Robert)
I have never did a comparative analysis of Mardi Gras and HOODOO before.
But can we really compare the two, since MG was the modified CCR,
and HOODOO was Fogerty as a solo artist?
MG John was feelin’ the pain of losing his brother from the band and all the acrimony -
HOODOO was still a time of…[Read more]
Hey there, Robert (AKA: Mr Sky)
Since you have been to at least 200 of John Fogerty’s concerts,
have you ever seen him perform FEELIN BLUE at any of his shows????
If anyone saw him do it, you saw it or Miss Hoodoo saw it. Please advise.
Here’s my reply (copied from another forum) :
I compare Hoodoo with Mardi Gras.
Hoodoo was not John’s best LP , maybe his worst ?
Mardi Gras was not CCR’s best LP, probably their worst ?
Mardi Gras was released. Lots of people wish it wasn’t .
Hoodoo is not released , lots of people want it to be released.
What’s the difference ??
