Like the original? Then you¿ll love this
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/11/2009 14:03:19
Ok let me say first that I've been a Fogerty/Creedence Clearwater Revival fan since 1968, buying all CCR's vinyl LPs (the first on US import) and CDs, the original Blue Ridge Rangers album and all Fogerty's solo stuff that followed. The only album I haven't got is the unreleased "Hoodoo" (and the single from it).
If you like the original Blue Ridge Rangers album then you'll love this. Personally I'm not a great fan of country-style music even if it is Fogerty doing it. I was unimpressed by the original BRR album and am equally unimpressed by this. It's just too countrified for me and additionally it could be any decent musician performing the songs. I didn't even realise it was Fogerty when I first heard the "Garden Party" single on the radio.
Sorry John but the best track on here for me is the re-recording of "Change in the Weather" which is the only one I'd give a 5* rating to but why put it on in the first place? I do love his version of Delaney & Bonnie's "Never Ending Song of Love" (beats The New Seekers hands down!) and like the cover of Rick Nelson's "Garden Party" though I found it a bit nondescript. The cover of the Everly's "When Will I be Loved" isn't bad either but in reality I like those songs because I liked the originals. The likes of the John Denver, Buck Owens and Price & Gabbard covers you can, however, keep. Give me JC's "proper" albums any day.
For the extra 1GBP I suggest that you buy the deluxe edition with the DVD with the "Making of" and a couple of acoustic performances.

A great welcome back to a fantastic performer

Fogerty has lost none of his shine in this more than welcome and long overdue follow up. His voice as always sounds just the same with some really great backing musicians. Only one original track on this album but the choice of tracks really suits his style. A fantastic cover of the wonderful Garden Party. Highly recommended.
