I love 'em. Fogerty is such a great songwriter. Bayou Country is my favorite album of theirs.

Awesome song, and awesome album.

My personal favorite album by the band, for me, is probably Cosmo's Factory.

I hope that sometime within the next year I will get to see John Fogerty (assuming he will continue touring).

I wish that he would put aside his differences with Cliff, Stu, and, most of all, Tom, so that the band can have a real reunion, and not any of this "Creedence Clearwater Revisited" nonsense.

They're on my playlist right now

"Have You Seen The Rain" and "Up Around the Bend" are the only ones I've heard but I love them.

Mardis Gras is the critics universally hated CCR album. I love it, it contains John's masterpiece Someday Never Comes, Sweet Hitchhiker, great cover of Hello Mary Lou and John Fogerty plays some mean guitar on those "uncool" songs sung and written by Stu Cook and Doug Clifford that were done because they complained John was getting all the money for writing the songs. John did that to prove a point to them that the buying public wouldn't like Stu's and Clifford's songs like they did John's and he was right. The band broke up after that tour and the rest is history.

Pendulum is another forgotton CCR album that is really underrated.

I love Pendulum, Mardi Gras, not so much. Still a pretty good record, but it doesn't measure up to their other records.

great band...no scratch that...phenomenal band. definetly on my top ten. i'm trying to get the band im in now to go in more of a roots style like creedence/the beatles (there return to more roots based rock n roll, after their stint in the pyschedelic movement)/the byrds/etc)...unfortunately all my lead guitarists like is prog and shred....*sighs*

Me too, Ramble Tamble is a favorite of mine from them.

Yeah, that scene where they drop a ringer for a ringer, with Run through the Jungle in the background, is probably my favorite scene in all of cinema. "Fu.ck it man, let's go bowling."

Of the two songs in which Fogerty uses the "rain" metaphor, I actually prefer Who'll Stop the Rain.

It's very simply, but the chorus is extremely moving. For me, at least.

I like Credence. One of their Song/chord books should be a MUST to any beginner gutarists who like Classic Rock. Generally pretty simplistic chord arrangements. And if you buy/watch John's solo concert DVD, you can figure out alot of his leads pretty easy too.
But I am personally troubled by how John treated the rest of CCR. Make no mistake, he ws an ASSHOLE to them. And it went deeper than just who's songs were recorded.
OK, there's no denying that he was the principle songsmith talent in the band. But he got the "BIG HEAD" and unnessisarily treated his band, including his own brother like CRAP. Which lead to the breakup and an enstrangement from his brother that lasted even to his brothers death. Definantly NOT a "class act" IMO in comparison to artist like SRV who were much respected and beloved by their less talented "supporting" band members.

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Despite the fact that John was an ass (as were many other musicians to their band members), as you've pointed out, if it wasn't for him, the band wouldn't have made it.

CCR is definitely a very underrated band. They are fantastic. I just learned how to play Have You Ever Seen The Rain on bass and it's alot of fun. They are simple but powerful and the lyrics are great. John Fogerty is a very talented songwriter.

I'm interested in finding out if anyone knows of any extremely early official or bootleg live albums.

I only have The Concert, which is great, but the reason I want early live shows is because they originally were a blues-jam band.

However, once they managed to have so many singles chart high up, they usually just played those at their shows with only one or two long blues jams.

Yup, Mardi Gras was John's nasty practical private joke to embarrass and convince the other guys into thinking they could write hits and sing the songs too like John. Personally I like Mardis Gras though, only because I like Johns guitar work on that album, he started using the Les Paul instead of the Rickenbacker and got a heavier tone.
