Creedence Clearwater Revival — Up Around The Bend

Year: 1970

CCR was my band growing up. I practically wore out a cassette tape of their first recorded concert. And I also have the box set, which includes all of their work when they were called both The Golliwogs as well as Tom Fogerty and the Blue Velvets. While it helped destroy his relationship with Tom, John taking over creative control sure helped the music.

John’s opening guitar rift here is still my absolute favorite, even more so than the one to Johnny B. Goode.
