    Yep, “Feelin’ Blue” is one of the true undiscovered gems from the CCR catalog. It would sound great live, and if JF is truly heading in the direction of making an album of jam music, if he ever completes the album, and tours in support of it, “Feelin’ Blue”, would be a fine additon to the live set.

    Who is out there stalking Mr. Fogerty while he’s jogging? Kinda scary.

    Come on MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE!! Birthplace of Elvis, home of Sun Records, Beale Street, the roots of rock and roll begin in Memphis!

    By the way, VH1 did a documentary on JF/CCR about 15 years ago.

    I’m not sure a movie about JF and CCR would be a hit. Groups like the Beatles, the Who and Rush have had longer, and far more consistent careers than JF has had. Also, the Beatles and the Who were groups that had some personal dynamics that made for interesting story telling. I can’t think of a wilder character in rock and roll than Keith Moon (maybe Keith Richards???) The two long layoffs between the Shep LP and Centerfield and EOTZ and BMS kept him out of the music biz for far too long. Now, I would love to see a documentary where JF walks us through how he creates, writes and produces his muisc. That would be a fascinating insight into a legendary songwriter, and far more informative than a bio pic.

    Skip the movie. I’d much rather hear some new music.

    The first song I heard off this LP was “Blue Ridge Mountain Blues.” I was out in the yard with my transistor radio and when it came on, I thought to myself, “What the hell is this crap?” I was stunned and disappointed. I had prayed and hoped that after Creedence broke up that JF would come roaring out with a kick ass, rocking solo LP to let the world know that he was still a force to be reckoned with. I went ahead and bought the LP and over the weeks and months that followed, I grew to appreciate the music on the album, and found the range of his vocals on the various songs quite impressive. This LP also turned me on to Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, George Jones, etc., which began my exploration into country music (too bad today’s country music is nowhere near as good as the stuff that came out in the 60s and 70s). In my humble opinion, this is the most underrated album of JF’s career.

    Vocally, I think this is JF’s best solo album. Imagine if this album was redone with a collection of crack studio musicians? The album was way ahead of its time.

    Don’t change your clock…just stay stuck in the past.

    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.
