John Fogerty - The Long Road Home: In Concert (2006) Retail CD
The voice is still the same - that of an old-style blues shouter, capable of expressing great power, great emotion, great concern and great tenderness. And the songs - or most of them - are also still the same. The great Creedence originals, redolent of dark nights in bayou swamps, troubled skies, ghostly moonlight and worrying times. They really were the best band in the world back then.
In the last decade John Fogerty has once again become an active performer, releasing a handful of new studio and live albums as well as the recent career-spanning 'Long Road Home' compilation. And good thoughmore… it is to have him back (and it is) it also proves that Fogerty without Creedence is not quite the real deal. It's good, but not GREAT.
In their prime, Creedence had an urgency, a roughness round the edges, that made them sound gloriously alive. Understandably of course, most attention focused on John Fogerty, who wrote & produced nearly everything they did, selected the cover versions they performed, and generally masterminded the whole operation. Unfortunately that led to the fabulous rhythm section of Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford, being overlooked, even though they provided the hugely important rock-solid, teak-hard (and occasionally gloriously shambolic) foundation on which John could cut loose, with his powerhouse vocals, whiplash lead guitar lines and fabulous verbal imagery. Without all four musicians we would never have had Ramble Tamble (with its ferocious repetitive riffing) Pagan Baby (building to a quite awsome climax) Effigy or Graveyard Train (and their dark, doom-laden, insistent grooves) or any one of several other Creedence masterpieces. Far too many to list here!
This compilation is certainly effective! In places it's quite good. Especially if you're looking for an efficient, pleasant, stroll through a live greatest hits set. But don't look for heart, or particularly, soul. Because in their place you get polish, smoothness and just a hint of airbrushing. And anyone who yearns for the rootsy, gutsy, earthy groove of Creedence - the very things that made us all want to dance Down on the Corner, travel Up Around The Bend, or Run Through The Jungle - will feel just a wee bit sad.
