EDITORS’ NOTES

Legal issues with his former record label made John Fogerty decide to not play his old Creedence Clearwater Revival hits for decades. However, time—and the sale of that record label to a friendly team–has inspired Fogerty to embrace his early genius, and everyone's the richer for it. For 2013's Wrote a Song for Everyone, he teams with friends and fellow musicians to breathe new life into songs he knows as well as the back of his old guitar. Two new songs—"Mystic Highway" and "Train of Fools"—are done with just his backing band and show he can still write a tune true to his roots. Fogerty's sons join him for an honest look at "Lodi." Miranda Lambert nails the title track. Zac Brown Band brings an unusual joy to "Bad Moon Rising." My Morning Jacket adds atmosphere to "Long As I Can See the Light." Dawes brings sweetness to "Someday Never Comes." Alan Jackson claims "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" for the C&W crowd, and Bob Seger goes straight for heartland rock on "Who'll Stop the Rain."
