Don’t change your clock…just stay stuck in the past.February 22, 2014 at 4:21 am #2487
I must be technology illiterate or something. I downloaded one of the shows and the sound was terrible. I have an older laptop, so that probably has something to do with it. What I notice is that JF’s vocals are front and center very clearly, but the band and instrumentation are so far in the background it’s very muddled. I emailed Live Downloads, and they let me download a couple more times, but still the same issue. Does anyone know if having an older computer will cause this to happen? I’ve been trying to convince my wife to replace our current laptop we got 12 years ago, and maybe if I whine enough about not being able to properly listen to JF live, she’ll give in…

I can totally relate DRBQ. Last month, my 87 year old mother fell down and broke her hip. It’s a total life changer for her after living independently for so, so long to now being inside a rehab facility. As a teacher, I’m fortunate to have a lot of sick days saved up so I could help my mom through this past month. But, still very stressful to say the least. I teach 6th grade language arts and I came back to school yesterday after another two days off. My lesson plans have been a mess as I’ve tried to balance getting my mom’s house packed and sold, talking with various doctors, writing lesson plans for subs, etc., etc. Anyway, I was in at work 5:00am yesterday morning and had just made a cup of coffee and turned on Pandora Radio. I was staring at a pile of papers needing grading, looking at my lesson plan book trying to figure out how to make it all come together and just when I’m ready to throw my hands up and let loose with a primal scream, on comes my favorite song of all time (yes, it was most definitely a God thing)..UP AROUND THE BEND! That song NEVER FAILS to put a smile on my face. I just made myself a cup of coffee, closed my classroom door and cranked the volume to max and sat down and entered into two minutes of pure nirvana. Needless to say, the rest of the day was awesome. Thank you Mr. Fogerty for saving my day.February 17, 2014 at 6:49 pm #2479
Hey, some people like me and I’m an asshole….but that doesn’t make them an asshole.February 6, 2014 at 8:04 am #2454
Absolutely outstanding work! Love the guitar solo.February 5, 2014 at 5:39 pm #2450
At the urging of friends, I gave HS one week on my radio at work to see what this guy was all about and I was sorry I listened. What disturbed me the most was he had a guy call in who obviously had a drinking problem and needed help. He had this guy go out in public and embarrass himself. It was sick. How can you call this entertainment? Exposing and using another person’s disease and shortcomings for the entertainment of the masses. Sick, sick, sick…I have never listened to a thing HS has said since.

There was not a bad song on Shep, a very strong album from start to finish. When the LP came out in ’75 I really thought it was going to shoot JF back to the top. Still my favorite JF solo LP today.January 27, 2014 at 2:12 pm #2416
The problem with hate is that the only person really hurt in the long run is the person consumed by the hate. It eats at you like a cancer. So sad to see Mr. Fogerty post the video in response to the death of the Mr. Zantz. Forgive, but don’t forget. Time to let go of the hate Mr. Fogerty and move forward.January 19, 2014 at 7:48 pm #2371
I firmly believe that not releasing “Hoodoo” was the right thing to do. There were some very good tunes on that LP–Between the Lines, On the Run, and Telephone–but also some truly terrible tunes–Marching to Blarney, You’ve Got the Magic and Evil Thing. As we all know JF is a perfectionist when it comes to his music and “Hoodoo” was nowhere close to his level of artistry.January 8, 2014 at 4:14 am #2316
I think Bruno Mars has already been lined up for the halftime show. A few years ago during the NFL playoffs, JF played the halftime show at two games. I don’t remember which games, but he played the first, and then hopped on a plane and flew to the other game and did his second show.January 8, 2014 at 4:12 am #2315
Jeacar, JF was never told he could not play his own music. Since Fantasy owned the rights to all of the CCR material, JF chose not to perform those songs live (until the Washington DC Veterans Benefit concert in the late 80s) because he would have had to pay Fantasy for performing the CCR material.January 4, 2014 at 12:50 pm #2302
So, John Fogerty’s response to the death of Saul Zaentz is to post a video of “Vanz Can’t Dance” on his Twitter account. So much for moving on from the past and letting go of the anger.October 19, 2013 at 4:50 am #1879
I’ve done a bit of digging around on this box set, and the pre-Creedence stuff are the same tunes that were released on the previous box set that included the Fanatasy release of the Golliwogs songs under the album title, “Pre-Creedence”. As I read various reviews from around the Internet, some say the sound quality in this box set is great, others say not so much.October 17, 2013 at 10:04 am #1842
I think the $12.95 might be justified if there was also some CD art to download, or maybe even a dvd audio version.October 17, 2013 at 10:01 am #1841
I probably should have been a bit clearer in my original post. I was in no way trying to suggest that it is JF attempting to squeeze more money out of another CCR repackaging item. No, it’s obvious that it’s the record companies doing this. What I find hard to figure out it that they really think they can make enough money doing this over and over again. The real die hards fans may opt to purchase this as an add on to their collection, but your average music fan who already has the CCR catalog is not going to dump $60 on this.
