I'm with Max on this. I am very critical of pop music and sellouts. But this is a neat mix of new artists and Fogerty's grit and style. It's cool because mostly you get to hear the new artist and Fogerty do different verses in the same song. Lots to like here, just a couple of bummers.

CD Reviews

Dire covers and interpretations
Siriam | London United Kingdom | 01/15/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Tribute albums are always of interest in seeing if musical devotees of the relevant artiste can either better the original or provide an innovative interpretation of a chosen song.

Truth is most such tributes as a result are usually very variable in quality but often of interest just because of the range of alternatives they offer. Sadly this CD is the worst I have ever heard in the tribute category. In part this is down to John Fogerty being such a distinctive performer in vocals, musicianship and production (another who has similarly defied better tribute interpretations being Elvis for the same reasons) but also the offerings here are so badly recorded and produced they leave you pining for the originals.

Recorded by little known performers in predominantly either offbeat US or Finnish studios (with UK and Australian contributions making up the balance) only the Coal Porters (including Sid Griffin of Long Ryders fame) provide an interesting intrepretation of "Who'll stop the rain".

Better to spend your money on one of the many good Creedence compilations than this CD I would suggest."

"I disagree in a big way with Siriam above. I, too, like tribute albums, and this is one of my favorites, as a huge CCR/Fogerty fan. Most are substantially different yet respectful renditions of the originals. The great ones: Fly Away, Cross-Tie Walker, Back in the Hills, Graveyard Train. The good ones: Commotion, Hitchhiker, Effigy, Run...Jungle, Dont Look Now, Gloomy. The so-so ones: Hey Tonight, Who'll Stop The Rain, Up Around The Bend. The one absolute disaster is Fortunate Son, which, believe it or not, morphs into "We Got the Beat" by the Go-Gos (VOMIT)."
