Catching Up with CCR
Posted:Monday, 11/19/2012 at 03:11am by Greg Easterling
We featured Creedence Clearwater Revival last week on our Thursday Artist Portrait and also here on the Overnight Album Side.

Their Green River album was the 1969 followup to Creedence's big break through record, Bayou Country. While the latter featured a number of long jams, Green River concentrated on more compact 2-3 minute plus songs, several of which have become classics, including the title track. John Fogerty wrote all but one song on the record("Night Time Is The Right Time", recorded by Ray Charles). We listened to Side 2 which included CCR standards, "Bad Moon Rising" and "Lodi".
