Oh, yes, John Fogerty was the voice of America in the 60s&70s and he is still that today. His songs are timeless. Early on, he chose to write songs about what was going on in America at the time and what was going on in his own life, real songs, not silly love songs with no real meaning. His songs apply to situations today just like they did back in the day. Back then, John, with his band, Creedence Clearwater,was one of the very few recording artists who put out albums in which every song on them was good. There were very very few who released singles in which BOTH sides were hits, and John did it over and over and in an unbelievably short time. I don't think anyone in the industry was so prolific. And he has not lost a bit of his incredible talent today. I am so very glad and thankful John Cameron Fogerty is not thinking of retiring. What a loss it would have been. He just literally LOVED making this new album and I loved watching him enjoy it so much. And what a really great album it turned out to be. In true Fogerty fashion, there is not a dud on it. I love every single track!
