Album Review

John Fogerty released his first solo CD, an album of covers on which he played all the instruments, under the name the "Blue Ridge Rangers," and he revives that concept on 2009's The Blue Ridge Rangers Ride Again. Where the first smacked of the righteous zeal of a young purist, Ride Again is a lot looser in its attack, something reflected in how it splits the difference between country and rockabilly classics and reflective numbers from '70s songwriters. These unexpected covers of John Prine, Delaney & Bonnie, and John Denver offer a peek at a sweeter, gentler Fogerty, a Fogerty who can also be heard on how he lays back instead of pushing ahead on Buck Owens' "I Don't Care (Just as Long as You Love Me)" and Ray Price's "I'll Be There," and even on his revamp of his own neglected swamp rocker "Change in the Weather." He can still raise an unholy ruckus, wailing his way through Gene Simmons' rockabilly classic "Haunted House" and joyously duetting with Bruce Springsteen on the Everlys' "When Will I Be Loved," but Ride Again isn't a raucous rock & roll album, it's a relaxed good time, a little bit of cheerful nostalgia that's pretty charming. [A CD/DVD version was also released.]

Customer Reviews

DEJA VU as John would say

Sounds as good as original 1973 blue rangers album great bluegrass and country rock, rock sound

A VERY DIFFERENT SIDE OF FOGERTY, COWBOY, COUNTRY AND BRILLIANT!!

this is a totally different album for Jhon than we are used to. This cowboy country list of songs are just what the doctor ordered. Again Fogertys guitar playing is superb, always is in what he does anyway and you can sure tell here that he is having alot of fun with this new album. I love when will will i be loved, it is a classic song that makes everyonewant to get up and dance. at first I didnt think that this album was going to be any good but when I listened to more songs they just got better and better. cudos to Fogerty for trying something different and for taking country music to a whole new level. even my boyfriend who is very old fashioned and likes George Jones and Charlie Pride thought it was an amazing album. I went to the Fogerty concert in Calgary Alberta Canda and he rocked the stage the whole night it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen and this new music would fit in to his play list just fine. If you like country music then your sure to like this album and these tunes but if you dont I think your sure to hate it just because it is so different, but if you give it a chance then it might grow on you and this other side of Fogerty that we have never seen before might just stick in your heads and in your hearts. Im a true fan of fogerty and now with this new album Im falling in love all over agian. great job and keep up the great work man.

Not Worth The Effort

Definitely doesn't have the "Soul" or H***y Tonk feel of the original 1973 release. Can't stand on it's own either. Mediocre rehash of some better forgotten covers.
