BBC Review

Simplicity; it's harder than it looks. It may seem amazing, but at one brief point in the early 70s Creedence Clearwater Revival were the biggest selling act in the WORLD. And it was all down to hit after hit written by the man with the common touch, John Fogerty. This isn't in any way meant to denigrate his achievements. The ersatz blend of 'swamp rock' (Creedence were all San Francisco bay area residents!) was born of nearly ten years of hard gigging and a deep love of 50s blues and rock 'n' roll. Like I said; it takes hard work to be simple...

This compilation marks the first time that both Creedence's AND Fogerty's solowork have been combined on one disc. It also celebrates his return to the label that he so acrimoniously split with nearly 30 years ago. But while his sidelining of his brother and bandmates may have been a little heavy-handed, the songs make the best argument as to why Creedence WERE Fogerty. Each one of their tracks ("Up Around The Bend", "Proud Mary", "Down On The Corner", "Bad Moon Rising" etc. etc.) along with his excellent solo hits ("Old Man Down The Road", "Centrefield") is ALL killer. And all delivered with that howl that was made to cut through the AM static on your transistor radio.

What's more, the live tracks taken from last year's world tour show a man whose voice has lost none of its grit and fire. Just about everything recorded by this man is worth checking out. But this is a very fine place to start. --Chris Jones

Thanks to a mixture of record company disputes, internal group fighting and simple stubborn pig-headedness, John Fogerty's releases have tended to be few and far between. If his output had matched other recording artists of the same era then he would simply be a household legend. As it is, maybe his reclusive nature in the recording studio has done him a favour, because what he has done both past and present is quite simply brilliant.

The track listing seems to have no particular running order and you get a nice mix of Creedance Clearwater Revival (CCR) material and Fogerty solos all the way through its playing time. Starting off with two of the most recognisable CCR hits and then progressing onto Fogerty's most famous solo song, you will instantly get the feel of the album: Southern bluesy rock is the order of the day here, and rarely does he move away from that. The CCR material will be the most crowd pleasing with little gems such as Fortunate Son (a song about Vietnam), Up Around The Bend and the ever popular Proud Mary being among the best of the best. Every song by CCR was a big seller (maybe not in the U.K) and the fantastic southern sound of Fogerty's writing and performing is seldom bettered by anybody. John Fogerty's solo material is no damp squib though, with tracks such as Rockin' All Over The World (yes the same song that Status Quo did) Hot Rod Heart and the rollocking Old Man Down The Road, you will see that he has lost none of his songwriting magic. Another little bonus is that some of the tracks are the live versions, and this will show you that he is also indeed one of the best live acts of his kind in the business.

So, to sum it all up what do you have here?

Many boyfriends ago, I had a huge multi-cd ohmigoodness Creedence / Fogarty compilation which had every CCR track on it you would ever want to hear. Problem was, it had quite a few others tracks which I didn't want to hear, so I seldom played it much beyond the middle of the first disc. Happily, some ex-fella nominated it as 'his' during some great splitting-upness, so the problem was taken out of my hands!

When I caught the tv ad for this new compilation I was intrigued, because it covered most of the CCR bases without seeming so long that I'd die of fossilisation before reaching the end. I admit it: Bad Moon Rising is a big reason for buying this disc, but so is Born on the Bayou and Up Around the Bend. In fact, that last one has me gambolling around the office, chirruping away when I should be working...

The pleasant surprise with The Long Road Home is that the live tracks and the John Fogarty solo songs are in keeping with the CCR stuff, and they are neither self-indulgent additions nor overt, time-wasting fillers. They add to the experience, and mean I've found some new faves to add to the list of old faves. Mind you, I could've done with Rockin' all over the world (again).

No compilation gets it 100% right, but this one is very close. Upbeat, pacy, and a good selection of music.

And thankfully it doesn't go on to multiple discs or for half a dozen hours, so you can play it end to end without needing to hit the FWD button every five minutes. Probably not one for a CCR afficionado (but hey -- you have all these tracks already, right?), but an excellent introduction to the band and a perfect way to get your hands on Bad Moon Rising, should you feel like howing at the moon.

I must admit that I had never heard much Creedence stuff; of course Bad Moon Rising and Proud Mary(did not know the name before) but this album opened my eyes to the amazing talent of John Fogerty and Creedence; now a fan of this band I have to say for anyone who loves rock or wants to hear the real versoin of Rockin All Over The World better buy this, Born On The Bayou is by far the best song here but all in all an excellent album to listen to again and again

`07 hasn't been the greatest summer yet - although it is only the end of May I suppose - hot spring, rainy summer weird - however the sun was shining brightly when The Long Road Home popped through the letter-box. So I put the top down and shoved the cd in. There's a long sweep of B road coming off the downs between Newbury and Wantage, downhill, long curves, no traffic, green hills, not a cloud in the clear blue sky. I swear to god, it started to rain just as Fogerty started singing `have you ever seen the rain coming down on a sunny day?' Up around the bend coming out of Wantage was a sign for Clearwater Hampers. I wouldn't have been surprised if on the side of the road was a Cajun queen hitching to Baton Rouge. You'd be gutted if I said there was........

Is the cd any good - you probably want to know. First I should nail my colours to the mast. Fogerty is number one for me, always has been since the 60's. Now this is rare - for despite his commercial appeal John usually rates as everybody's second favourite rocker. So clearly this is the best single disc by the best artist in the world. I challenge anyone to find on a single cd so much good music. Who are you going to cite? The Stones, ZZ Top, The Beatles, Springsteen, Petty, Eagles, Seger, Mellancamp? Whoever this will beat them hands down. Could it be improved? Well, there is a live version of Fortunate Son at the end, the original is on it too, so if they had some space why not put another song instead, maybe Rock and Roll Girls or Southern Streamline.

Fogerty did a great set at Hammersmith last year so I won't be bothering with the Wembley aircraft hanger or Glastonbury this year. I'll be chooglin' around the B roads listening to this - hopefully in the sunshine. So why settle for second best when you can have this?
