USA, 1970, swamp rock

Creedence Clearwater RevivalCosmo’s Factory: As solid a white-boy blues album as I’ve ever heard. Clocking in at 11 short tracks, four of them being covers, and seven original songs, this is a step further into a band known by the vast majority by its singles, songs that have made cameos in films from here to Vietnam and back. Speaking of covers, by the way, there are covers, and then there are 11-minute blues jams of Motown songs. Fogerty’s songwriting is incredible, but his ability to arrange songs to suit his style is no less impressive.
