A lot of what gets posted here is just a reflection of what I’m listening to at the time. Whether it’s from the shelf or something found on the web, writing about it and posting it gives me an opportunity to study the music without having to stare at a 5″ CD cover, which, as we all know, is totally ungratifying. Enter CCR’s Bayou Country, which I haven’t listened to since well into last century, despite its personal prominence. My older brother had this one on 8-track in his ’57 Chevy and, while it was far from the first album to move me, it was the first album to move me to save enough allowance money ($5.50) to go to my first real concert – Creedence Clearwater Revival, with John Mayall’s Turning Point (more about that HERE) and, playing only acoustic guitar, 50s great, Dion. It must say something about my sensibilities that I hardly remember CCR (I was barely a teen… and sober), but distinctly remember John Mayall, who I’d only heard of at that time. Regardless, this album remains a favorite from my youth, even if it was sitting on my shelf… unopened, which is what prompted a revisit and this post in the first place. This is the 2000, 20bit K2 Super Coding version, whatever that means. There are more recent bonus track reissues, but you’ll have to poke around the web if you want those. Listen to the lead off track, “Born On The Bayou,” below. Find it at Amazon, HERE. Ahhh… memories. If I only had some.
Born On The Bayou (5:16)
Graveyard Train (8:39)
Good Golly Miss Molly (2:43)
Penthouse Pauper (3:41)
Proud Mary (3:09)
Keep On Chooglin’ (7:40)
