4.0 out of 5 stars A fine comeback album 18 April 2003
By Docendo Discimus TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When John Fogerty made his comeback in 1985, after ten years of abscense, "Centerfield" shot to #1 with a bullet, not on the "old, uncool rock records" list, but on the Billboard 200.
That was an obvious triumph for Fogerty, and a testament to his immense popularity that he managed to survive ten years (an eternity in the record business) almost without being heard of, only to return in such a manner. Who else besides The Beatles, The Eagles and Led Zeppelin could possibly hope for anything like that?
The funny thing is that the album itself is good, but not truely great ("Blue Moon Swamp" is a much better record). Light-hearted pop-rockers dominate "Centerfield", and there is absolutely nothing on here as good as his best CCR-compositions.
But second-rate Fogerty album tracks are still better than most rock bands' best singles, and even though there are no real classics on here, the quality of the songs is consistently high, with "The Old Man Down The Road", "Big Train (from Memphis)" and "Rock n' Roll Girls" being the best.
Go buy it. And get "Blue Moon Swamp" and "John Fogerty" as well, if you haven't already.

For a 25th Anniversary reissue this one's somewhat thin, adding only 2 tracks to the original album's 9, these being "I Confess", a non-album single B-side and "My Toot Toot", a throw-away Cajun-style shuffle for Fogerty completists only. Now I call that pretty poor for a 25th Anniversary edition. Perhaps they could also have rescued some "Hoodoo" album tracks or at least the RCA single off it, "You Got the Magic". You do still, of course, get 3 of Fogerty's best solo tunes in the form of the 2 singles "The Old Man Down The Road" and "Rock and Roll Girls", plus the infamous "Zanz Kant Danz" (later changed to "Vanz Kant Danz" after a court case). Other decent tracks include the semi-acoustic "I Saw it on TV", the shuffling "Mr. Greed" and the similar tracks "Searchlight" and "Centrefield", all very much in the Creedence Clearwater Revival-style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Centrefield - John Fogerty 29 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
If ever there was a doubt as to the driving force behind Creedence Clearwater Revival then this album dispels it.
I first purchased it on vinyl in the eighties and eventually updated to CD a couple of years ago. John Fogerty is on great form as he attacks the songs in this collection....'The Old Man Down The Road' so reminiscent of Creedence's 'Run Through The Jungle' and the joyous 'Rock and Roll Girls' taking itself not too seriously ('if I had my way, I'd shuffle off to Buffalo').
'Big Train From Memphis' has echoes of an early Elvis Presley's 'Mystery Train' and the poignant 'I saw It On TV' is a tightly packed snapshot of the last few decades of life in the USA.
'Centrefield' itself is an anthem for the sport of baseball and seems to capture the optimism of a new season ....'we're born again, there's new grass on the field.' and even manages a sideways tribute to Buddy Holly ... 'rounding third and headed for home is a brown eyed, handsome man'.
If you enjoyed Creedence Clearwater Revival's music, this album is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad I made the purchase 21 Dec 2009
By Bendy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On the back of Creedence Clearwater Revivals music I thought I'd give this a listen, I wasn't disappointed. The album is good. The quality of the songs is high and like CCR songs it was not long before I was leading the singing.'Rock and Roll Girls' would be my favourite but 'Big Train (from Memphis)' 'Centerfield' and 'Old Man down the Road' are catchy. This is a good addition to your CCR collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars More somewhere just off to the side.. 19 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
This has been heralded as THE post CCR Fogerty album. In late 1984 when I first heard "Old Man Down the Road" I was jubilant that AT last John was making music again. Listening to the cd years later it sounds a little "dry" and artificial as though John is trying hard to recreate the sound his music formerly had. The reason it doesn;t quite succeed is because he doesn't have a good bassist or drummer here to back him(choosing instead to do it all himself.)

There has been so much animosity traded between former members that a CCR reunion seems eternally out of the question- but NO ONE has backed John as well as the other guys in Creedence did. It was the perfect combination. Had this been a CCR album it would have been a classic. As it is- its enjoyable without being great.

Best tracks are "Old Man", "Heard it on TV", Mr Geed" and "Big Train".

This is neither Fogerty's best nor worst solo album, ranking somewhere in between. You get 3 of Fogerty's best solo tunes in the form of the 2 singles "The Old Man Down The Road" and "Rock and Roll Girls", plus the infamous "Zanz Kant Danz" (later changed to "Vanz Kant Danz" after a court case). Other decent tracks include the semi-acoustic "I Saw it on TV", the shuffling "Mr. Greed" (another poke at Zaentz) and the similar tracks "Searchlight" and "Centerfield", all very much in the Creedence Clearwater Revival-style.

Instead of this CD I recommend going for the 25th Anniversary edition which, though somewhat thin as such, adds 2 tracks to the original albums 9, these being "I Confess", a non-album single B-side and "My Toot Toot" a limp, throw-away Cajun-style shuffle for Fogerty completists only. I have the Japanese copy and it's no better in quality than the ordinary GB release.
