Seriously?
The last time I checked, the "Yankees" hadn't slaughtered six million jews.

And you can't forget Nina Simone's version.
Great orchestration, heart wrenching sax solo, her timing and delivery. When she sings "And I don't care if you don't want me/I'm yours, right now", it is simply too much.
This defines a 10.
The gooey saliva erupting from a hungry mouth of a rabid dog is what I think of whenever I hear CCR. Their sound makes me want throw a hippo at the stereo, but I know I'll love my stereo again when CCR's song is over. Lucky hippo.

CCR's version is very solid, but the combination of the instrumentation (namely the sax) and Screamin' Jay Hawkins' voice make his rendition exquisite, and the very embodiment of "eclectic".

Always thought that version is the original!

Thank you RP for countless lessons.

The CCR version is even better to my ears!

no one seemed to complain during the marshall plan years.  no one seemed to complain when my father and some now-very-old friends were there - those people are the reason those 150 innocent countries and most of the other countries of the world don't speak german today.   unless, of course, that's the gist of your objection...    it may rightly be said not all of our actions turn out well, but your vitriol seems a bit out of place, especially here.  RP isn't the proper forum.
I said, "Watch out!" 
I ain't lyin', yeah! 


sounds a little different now....{#Ask}
The legendary CC&R was from El Cerrito, California; so they were swamp rock posers?  Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Sofa king good.  Back in HS again cruising down PCH looking for waves.  Nobody was doing licks like this back then.

 
Amazing how that song can bring back memories. Also, I bought a new sofa last month from Sofa King down in Springfield, and it really is Sofa King good!


RP ought to play the Buddy Guy- Carlos Santana cover back to back with this. It's very different from this great CCR rockabilly, more of a major dose of the straight blues.

IMO Fogarty should stick to the folksy rock that he writes. There are a zillion better guitarists, but not many can write the catchy tunes he does. 
Fave CCR song...
Only Screaming Jay Hawkins done it better...

I am opposed to the US's obsession with worldwide interventionism, which reeks of imperialism to me.  But, as for Germany: fool me once...

Hmmh, let's see: oh, helping to get rid of the Nazis for one thing.
Also the terminology seems a bit off: What's an "actual" map? What's an "innocent" country? Are these 3 situations (Afghanistan, Iraq, Germany) really comparable? Do they necessarily involve an attack of US troops on "innocent" countries? 

Aside from all of this: seems to be a confusion of the solider statitioned in Germany with the politics surrounding his being there.

Oh and neen49: Thanks for being there, even if I do not think that the US motivation to statition troops in Germany post-WW II was all laudable at all times, the overall commitment definitely was (to me).

Takes me back to a juvenile "lost summer" on Oahu.  That album had 3 big hits in constant rotation on every station.  Went home and could not find the album... or the songs... or the band or anything.  6 months later a tidal wave of CCR.

Where are they now? - American rock band - Creedence Clearwater Revival  by brizzle born and bred

Creedence Clearwater Revival 1968. L-R: Tom Fogerty, Doug Clifford, Stu Cook, and John Fogerty.

Unquestionably one of the greatest American rock bands ever, Creedence Clearwater Revival will best be remembered for their unique bayou sound that is often referred to as "garage band music."

Creedence Clearwater Revival (often abbreviated CCR) was an American rock band that gained popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s with a number of successful singles drawn from various albums.

The group consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty, his brother and rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bassist Stu Cook, and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed rock and roll and swamp rock genres. Despite their San Francisco Bay Area origins, they are sometimes also cited as southern rock stylists.

CCR's music is still a staple of American and worldwide radio airplay and often figures in various media. The band has sold 26 million albums in the United States alone. CCR was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

Creedence had an astonishing track record: eight consecutive gold singles;

Proud Mary - Jan. 1969
Bad Moon Rising - April 1969
Green River - July 1969
Down on the Corner / Fortunate Son - September 1969
Who'll Stop the Rain / Travlin' Band - Jan.1970
Up Around the Bend - April 1970
Lookin' Out My Back Door - June 1970
Have You Ever Seen the Rain? - Jan. 1971

and eight consecutive gold albums

John Fogerty

In 1973, John began his solo career with The Blue Ridge Rangers, his one-man band collection of country and gospel songs. Under his old Creedence contract, however, Fogerty owed Fantasy eight more records. In the end, he simply refused to work for the label any longer. The impasse was resolved only when Asylum Records' David Geffen bought Fogerty's contract for $1,000,000. His next major hit was Centerfield, a chart-topping success in 1985.

On tour in 1986, however, Fogerty suffered complaints over his steadfast refusal to play Creedence songs live and suffered with recurring vocal problems which he blamed on having to testify in court. Fogerty's explanation for not playing CCR songs was that he would have had to pay performance royalties to copyright holder Saul Zaentz-and that it was "too painful" to revisit the music of his past.

With the Centerfield album, Fogerty also found himself entangled in new, tit-for-tat lawsuits with Zaentz over the song "The Old Man Down the Road" which was, according to Zaentz, a blatant re-write of Fogerty's own 1970 Creedence hit "Run Through the Jungle". Since Fogerty had traded his rights to Creedence's songs in 1980 to cancel his remaining contractual obligations, Fantasy now owned the rights to "Run Through the Jungle" and sued Fogerty essentially for plagiarizing himself. While a jury ruled in Fogerty's favor, he did settle a defamation suit filed by Zaentz over the songs "Mr. Greed" and "Zanz Kant Danz". Fogerty was forced to edit the recording, changing the "Zanz" reference to "Vanz".

On February 19, 1987, at the Palomino Club in Los Angeles, Fogerty broke his self-imposed 1972 ban on performing his CCR hits, on an admonition from Bob Dylan and George Harrison (who both joined him onstage) that "if you don't, the whole world's gonna think 'Proud Mary' is Tina Turner's song." At a Fourth of July benefit for Vietnam veterans, Fogerty finally ran through the list of Creedence hits-beginning with "Born on the Bayou" and ending with "Proud Mary"-to an ecstatic audience. He retreated from music again in the late 1980s but returned in 1997 with the Grammy-winning Blue Moon Swamp. John Fogerty still tours frequently and plays CCR tunes alongside material from his newer albums.

Tom Fogerty

Tom Fogerty released several solo albums, though none reached the success of CCR.

Tom's 1974 solo album Zephyr National was the last to feature the four original band members. A few of the songs sound very much in the Creedence style, particularly the aptly-titled "Joyful Resurrection". All four members did play on the song, but John recorded his part to the mix separately.

In September 1990, Tom Fogerty died of AIDS, which he contracted via a tainted blood transfusion he received while undergoing back surgery.

Stu Cook and Doug Clifford

Junior high buddies Doug Clifford and Stu Cook continued to work together following the demise of CCR both as session players and members of the Don Harrison Band. They also founded Factory Productions, a mobile recording service in the Bay Area. Clifford released a solo record, Cosmo, in 1972. Cook produced artist Roky Erickson's The Evil One and was bassist with the popular country act Southern Pacific in the 80s.

Following a relatively lengthy period of musical inactivity, the two formed Creedence Clearwater Revisited in 1995 with several well-known musicians. Revisited toured globally performing the original band's classics. John Fogerty's 1997 injunction forced 'CCRev' to change to 'Cosmo's Factory', but the courts later ruled in Cook's and Clifford's favor.

Sorry you went to so much trouble.  I still don't like 'em.  Thanks, though.

CCR has a tremendous following around the world. To this day, you can't find a juke-box in rural Idaho,
Montana, Wyoming, or the Dakotas that doesn't have half a dozen CCR hits on them, 



AAAAAGH??  Why not Screamin' Jay?

Hawkins had originally intended to record "I Put a Spell on You" as a refined love song, a blues ballad. He reported, however, that the producer "brought in ribs and chicken and got everybody drunk, and we came out with this weird version.<4> I don't even remember making the record. Before, I was just a normal blues singer. I was just Jay Hawkins. It all sort of just fell in place. I found out I could do more destroying a song and screaming it to death."

Pete Townshend does a version of this on his Deep End Live record. As much as I love Pete, CCR does the best job on this song.
Its just the guitar- solo...one of the best. Its like a human voice...
Its a good 9.
Its CCR.
I still love it after all these years {#Music}

As soon as I hoid this come on, I toined the volume off. BOO CCR!!!

I mentioned Mr. Hawkins' original version in my prior post.
The first version I ever heard and still one of my favorites, followed closely by the version done by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

I've never liked CCR. I hate the music, the voice, the fake backstory.... And as soon as this song started, I thought, "Wow, this is not good." And then it was CCR. Which makes so much sense to me. Although it is the least offensive CCR song I think I've heard, which made me begrudgingly give it a 5.

Regarding, the song, I like the element of menace in Fogarty's voice in this version.

Just upped this from a 9 to a 10. Might be my favorite Creedence track of all - and I'm not one who liked them much after they got popular. Pretty much didn't like anything after Green River (and didn't really like GR all that much, either). But I loved those first two albums - and still do, just as much as ever.

Cool post/UTube.  Guess you've already seen "Fishing with John"?
 


Love this tune - gave it a 9. Back when Creedence had some fire, some real grit - thought they pretty much lost that after "Bayou Country" except for an occasional post-Bayou exception (probaby shouldn't admit it but I'd put "It Came Out of the Sky" in this category).

A great album, indeed. 99-1/2 (Just Won't Do) is a fave. I bought this when it came out—the same summer I spot-bleached my jeans, then split their stovepipe legs and had my sister sew in some very colorful, triangular paisley swatches. Presto! Instant custom bellbottoms!

Other versions of this song are great, too. I especially like the rendition by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown (from my collection), as well as that by Nina Simone (introduced by RP). In fact, I think just about ANY artist with some cred and some feeling can make this number a hit.
'los miticos'.... !!!!!!!!....
