Bayou CountryCreedence Clearwater Revival
Don't know anything about this before listening to it, which is nice. I'm already running a day late! Born on the Bayou. Sounds quite 'derivative' - but perhaps just because its quite traditional 'blues rock' sound. Doesn't do a lot for me to start with. Perhaps this kind of thing was more striking at the time, and just seems a bit cliche now? (Apparently this is 'swamp rock', but "fake" - they are from California, apparently!). Bootleg. Similar The musics good, though - nice melodies. Maybe it would grow on me. Nice growly lead singer. Graveyard train is too slow for me. maybe too 'trad' blues, if that's what this is? steamtrain 'whistly' harmonica bit is fun, but drags on too long. Good golly miss molly: is fun rock-n-roll. Bit of a relief after the one before. Good solo. Penthouse pauper: bluesy Proud Mary: i've vaguely heard of this, so i was interested. Immediately recognised it, but wouldn't have been able to put a name to it. 'big wheel keeps on turning'. This is truly a great song. keep on chooglin' - very bluesy. nearly gave it 4. Perhaps i'll regret that later. - if it wasn't for proud mary it would definitely be 2 or 3. I ended being quite pleased albums were not so long in those days!
