  1. Jigsaw with Sky High… I’m almost certain I haven’t heard it since the seventies…

    Rockin’ All Over The World by Fogerty is one of my favorites of his…that and Almost Saturday Night.

    • That was one of those mid 70’s AM classics- that you heard a lot at the time but never afterwards… Those Fogerty tunes you mentioned were outstanding- must be something with the record company I have never seen that on CD.. I found the album though many years ago.. great stuff.

    • The way I found the two Fogerty songs were cover versions…Almost Saturday Night by the Georgia Satellites was one. I’m not a huge fan of them but they do a great version of that…
      Yea the record company must not have backed it much at all.
