Recensione album

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.

Una sola parola: GRANDE!

Di solito non dò giudizi sulle compilation fatte dei migliori successi dei vari artisti, ma per John Fogerty e questo suo lavoro voglio fare un'eccezione. Perchè questo cd raccoglie tutti quei brani che hanno fatto il ritratto di un'epoca e di una società: gli anni vissuti dalla società americana a cavallo tra gli anni sessanta e settanta, dal Vietnam a Woodstock. Ovviamente non ci sono solo i successi dei Creedence Clearwater Revival, ma c'è qualcosa anche di Fogerty solista. Da non perdere.
