Travelin’ Band

Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Long As I Can See the Light” from Cosmo’s Factory (1970)

There has been some discussion of CCR as of late.

And while their cover of “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” is confusing at best, CCR stands as one of the most powerful rock groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s. This was top-notch songwriting (see esp. the rest of Cosmo’s Factory and Willy and the Poor Boys).

The present song is, in my opinion, in competition for “best last track of all-time.” Who disagrees?

In the end, though, we can all agree that John Fogerty c. 1970 looked an awful lot like Steve Martin c. 1970.

Proud Mary keep on boinin’!

  1. amazingly, this photo of John Fogerty looks almost exactly like Jason. I remember picking up the Green River LP from the library, and I was too young to realize I was listening to it on 45 speed. thought he was the highest pitched singer ever. congratulations to you and yours.

    Thanks, man.
    Who’s Jason?

  3. Jason writes at the rising storm. Though he wants to discount the chin dimple and shaggy hair.
