One of the all-time classice,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bayou Country (Audio CD)
Bayou Country is and remains one of the Classic Rock albums of all-time. Creedence Clearwater was and remains probably the Greatest American Rock and Roll band ever.
Bayou Country is the second of 7 albums that CCR recorded in the late 60's and early 70's.
The album starts off with "Born on the Bayou, which in my mind is the best song John Fogertry ever wrote. Born on the Bayou mixes Rock and blues. The guitar licks are classic.
Bootleg is next. Bootleg is a nice little accoustic song.
Its fun to listen to
Graveyard Train is next and it shows Fogerty messing with the Blues. Graveyard train gets a little lengthy but is still worth listen.
Good Golly miss Molly is a cover of the Little Richard song. CCR does the song justice, its a great cover of a classic song.
Penthouse Pauper is next and it is also worth the listen.
Next is Fogerty's brightest moment. one of the Classic songs of all-time..............Proud Mary.
Many people prefer the cover by Ike and Tina Turner. As good as their version is I will always prefer the CCR version better.
Keep on Choolin is next and another solid song.
Creedence Clearwater came at a time when the charts were dominated by British bands. For the first time in over half a decade, an American band was recording #1 songs.
CCR sold more singles in the 60's that ANY American band.
Bayou Country along with Green River, Willie and the Poorboys and Cosmos Factory are and always will be classics.
John Fogerty is probably the greatest American writer of the 60's and probably for all-time.

corsican affair says:
What dull, badly-written comment. Spelling mistakes as well. Saying "probably" this and "probably" that is a waste of time. How the hell can anyone know that? Why not just say "I think" then make the comment. Calling a song "solid" really is damning with faint praise. Don't give up the day job.

Couldn't agree more. poorly written review, no detailed comments on any of the songs. If your going to do a track by track review of an album, make sure you actually say more than 5 words per song. Surprised someone with such a lack of intellect could be a fan of such a great band?
