Album Review

The Long Road Home: The Ultimate John Fogerty/Creedence Collection is the first compilation to feature both Fogerty's classic Creedence Clearwater Revival hits and his solo recordings of the '80s and '90s. This was released on the occasion of his return to Fantasy Records, the label where he began his career, in 2005. He may have started his recording career there, but he had a bitter falling out with the label's owner, Saul Zaentz, in the '70s, which lead to lawsuits — most notably, Zaentz sued Fogerty for plagiarizing himself — and a self-imposed embargo on Fogerty performing CCR material, since that music evoked too many bad memories. In 2005, Zaentz was no longer with Fantasy and the label courted Fogerty with an offer, which he eventually accepted, with The Long Road Home being the first release in the new contract. Weighing in at 25 songs, this has most, but not all, of the big CCR/Fogerty songs and most, but not all, are in their original studio hit versions. A handful of songs are presented in live versions — "Almost Saturday Night" and "Rockin' All Over the World" from his 1975 solo debut, "Bootleg," "Hey Tonight," "Keep on Chooglin'," and "Fortunate Son" — and some of these are quite good (particularly the recent 2005 recordings). Also, there are a couple of songs that are hard not to miss — not album tracks like "It Came out of the Sky," but charting singles like "Commotion," "Long as I Can See the Light," and "Rock & Roll Girls." That said, all these complaints amount to nitpicking, since this does have the great majority of Fogerty's best and biggest songs, and the collection is enormously entertaining. It's not just a good summary and introduction, but it's proof positive that Fogerty is one of the greatest songwriters of the rock & roll era.

Customer Reviews

Simplicity Driven

I used to play in an Art school band in Philadelphia; the years '78 to '80 . The Cobalt Blues Band. Our drummer taught me all about nailing the beat. He had a certain style, and haircut which could be said to be no less than an hommage to John Fogerty. Our drummer never wasted a beat and all he used to put on the turntable was CCR ( John Fogerty's vehicle: Creedence Clearwater Revival). From the first time I heard John Fogerty perform one of his songs, I have loved the easy clarity of his sound. Any of his songs could be used as a lesson to any musician who wants to learn the skills of crafting an unforgettable tune with a heartfelt lyric to lead the way. A sound engineer finding his feet would be well advised to admire the momentum that can be created when a song is well driven. And John Fogerty, with a voice which truly cuts the ether, is an excellent driver!

Worth the Wait

I had been half-heartedly looking out for a Creedence Clearwater Revival/John Fogerty compilation for years to replace my old vinyl and cassettes when I came across this new collection of songs. Absolutely brilliant! After listening to this you realise what a talent this man is in a career spanning almost 40 years (how old is he?)The early stuff still sounds fresh and unique. And Centrefield?.........Awsome! I didn't know he penned Rockin' All Over the World. A thoroughly excellent compilation which at 25 tracks long is great value. Pity his only Brittish date is in London.
