While I like this CCR hit- it ranks rather low when compared to their earlier material. This is from what would turn out to be their final album which easily ranks as their worst album-the material at this point is starting to run a little thin. They would have one more hit ‘Someday Never Comes’ #25 and that would be the end. What a run the band had in the late 60’s early 70’s. A short career but they certainly have a strong case in the Best American Rock Band ever category.
No comments? Ill take care of that. It’s some great CCR. Love this band.
I hear you’re doing a singles thing. These guys might pop up.
I would be shocked if they didn’t.
