John Fogerty – ‘Revival’

The title's "Revival," one tune is dubbed "Creedence Song" and the dozen tracks are swampy and buoyant - it's as close to a Creedence Clearwater Revival album as John Fogerty has made since the East Bay band broke up 30-odd years ago

The title’s “Revival,” one tune is dubbed “Creedence Song” and the dozen tracks are swampy and buoyant – it’s as close to a Creedence Clearwater Revival album as John Fogerty has made since the East Bay band broke up 30-odd years ago. A disc full of gritty and soulful, bare-boned performances, “Revival” is the album CCR fans have been waiting for Fogerty to make for decades. No polish, no contemporary production values, just an effortless balance of tunes that sound rudimentary (“Don’t You Wish It Was True”) and barnburners that display hooks, technique and open-ended jams (“Natural Thing”). Fogerty sounds more spirited and even happier than usual, his lead guitar playing sharing the bite of Albert King’s sound. And for anyone who ever wondered what would happen if the Ramones and CCR joined forces, there’s the one minute, 39 second thrash tune “I Can’t Take It No More.”
