    How about heading out to Memphis, Tennessee? The Mud Island Ampitheater is right along the shore of the Mississippi River, with Beale Street a short distance away. Come on, home of Elvis, Sun Records, Sam Phillips and ROCK AND ROLL!!!

    There is a link to JF and Jazzfest on the homepage.

    LOL! I’ve had numerous CCR/JF dreams….walking into a store and finding a brand new CCR CD and going nuts, etc. I wake up and tell my wife, and she says to me, “Please don’t tell anyone, they’ll think you’re weird.” Too late, people figured that out long ago.

    LOL…JF’s work ethic is well known, so if he puts as much effort towards perfection with his book as he does with his music, patience is going to be needed.

    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.
