Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Former Creedence Clearwater Revival leader Fogerty's first album since 1986's broodingly flat Eye of the Zombie, '97's Blue Moon Swamp finds him returning to the roots-rock ways of his old CCR glory days. Deceptively relaxed in the Creedence manner, this collection seeks to evoke the mood and tone of Southern swamp blues, with generally successful results. Highlighted by rockabilly-tinged tunes like "Southern Streamline" and "Hot Rod Heart," the album's clear standout track is "One Hundred and Ten in the Shade," on which Fogerty, ably backed by gospel vocal group legends the Fairfield Four, uncannily reconstructs the sound of Southern field hollers. --Billy Altman

If you already own "Blue Moon Swamp", don't bother buying it again because of the bonus tracks (or whatever they are). The melodramatic 1960s teenage-rocker "Endless Sleep" and the instrumental "Just Pickin'" are good enough, sure, but they don't really add anything to an album which was just about perfect to begin with.

"Blue Moon Swamp" is John Fogerty's first album in almost 11 years, and while a new John Fogerty-album is always something to be celebrated, this one is the best one he has delivered, and the most mature one as well, executed with confidence and professionalism.
Fogerty accomplishes what many artists try and few know how yo do, blending everything from hard rock to rockabilly, and from gospel to folk, and everything gels, everything seems cohesive, everything obviously belongs on this very same album.

Deservedly winning a Grammy for best rock album, "Blue Moon Swamp" is tight but pleasantly laid-back. If you've heard Creedence albums like "Green River" and "Willy and the Poor Boys", you'll have a pretty good idea what to expect, but "Blue Moon Swamp" is even more varied than that, and the production is much better. Wonderful melodies, excellent fidelity, and a great, great band.
This remains one of my favorite records, one which continues to grow on me.

This is AMAZING. I love just about EVERY song on this album, especially "Southern Streamline", "A Hundred And Ten In The Shade" (with the incredible Fairfield Four, who toured as John's warm-up act!), "Bring It Down To Jelly Roll", "Walking In A Hurricane", "Swamp River Days", "Rambunctious Boy", and "Blue Moon Nights". But particularly "Hot Rod Heart"-- the guitar work on this song thrills me to no end every time I hear it! This is not only clearly John's best solo album, it may be the BEST album he's EVER done! What a charge to hear this got the Grammy for "Best Rock Album of the year", one of the few times something I liked got such recognition. In fact, that year BLUE MOON SWAMP was the ONLY album by any "known" artist to even get into my personal "top ten"! For anyone looking for good NEW music, it's out there; I recommend The Friggs' ROCK CANDY, THE SPY-FI SOUNDS OF THE OMEGA MEN, Ben Vaughn's RAMBLER 65, Kevin Johnson's PAROLE MUSIC, The X Brothers' SOLID CITIZENS and The Brain Surgeons' MALPRACTISE (all from '97).

John Fogerty comes out hiding every couple of years and releases a new album. The Grammy winning "Blue Moon Swamp" is a delightful album full of great songs touching on blues, country, rock and gospel over the course of its 14 songs. 14 songs you ask?Yep. The album has been reissued with two solid tracks recorded during the original sessions. "Endless Sleep" and "Just Pickin'" aren't as essential as the other tracks on the album but they are a nice bonus for fans that may not have purchsed the album before or are replacing it.

The two bonus tracks clock in at less than 5 minutes. As I said if you have the previous edition they aren't essential. With the switch of Fogerty's solo stuff (all except his Fantasy releases)to Geffen Records the label thought it would be wise to reissue this album with bonus tracks to entice buyers again. The same original master created by Bob Ludwig is used so it doesn't really sound different.

Mature - yes. I saw John Fogerty on TV, singing One Hundred and Ten in the Shade - I was surprized he's still around. My favorite album was Willy and the Poor Boys up until now. I can't get enough of this album [Blue Moon Swamp] - I want more. I finally replaced my Centerfield vynyl album thru Amazon [excellent service] and anyone who enjoyed CCR in the past and stepped up to Centerfield - well this is another step UP. WONDERFUL - Wellcome back John, and pairing up with Mellencamp - I hope I can catch a concert. You guys have my kind of soul [rhythm [Yeah!] and blues.]

A rock & roll artist's greatest attribute is the vocal delivery of the song. This is how rock & roll music differentiated itself from mere pop music in the middle nineteen fifties. Presley definitely had it, some other singers had it, Fogerty especially had and does have it.
This album is not rated a five star album because of the vocal delivery of the material by John Fogerty. It rates a five star because of composition merit and musicianship. It is an album which demonstrates much variation and nuance. Regrettably, the adrenalin driving Fogerty voice is adjusted to a 'clinical laboratory' delivery to compliment the near perfect instrumental performance of John Fogerty and the backing musicians in the acoustically sensitive recording studio.
Let the passionate and enduring fan not be disappointed. This is a truly great album and very well sung. This critique becomes very obvious to the new listener when they hear "the voice" here, growl and scream the lyrics of most of these songs on the 'Premonition' video (see separate review) and fewer on the 'Premonition' album.
In this album Fogerty adds another great classic 'Hot Rod Heart' to his "motoring category of songs". This super composition joins other memorable greats such as 'Sweet Hitchhiker' and 'Up Around the Bend'.
'Swamp River Days'is deserving of mention for lyrics and instrumental backing. This is one of Fogerty's greatest songs and on the 'Premonition' album the delivery of this is extraordinary, again vintage John Fogerty.
'Rattlesnake Highway' and 'Walking In A Hurricane' are traditonal rock & roll "struggling loser" songs delivered more typically Fogerty - absolutely excellent.
