Creedence Clearwater Revival released their final album, 'Mardi Gras', four years after thier amazing self-titled debut rocketed them to superstardom. This album, was to be however, their most unique, misunderstood, and unsuccessful effort, commercially. It was however, the group's most ambitious album ever. This record never worked for several reasons: First, founding member, rhythm guitarist (and brother of frontman John)Tom Fogerty had already departed prior to this project; Also, Lead guitarist (and up until this album, the only vocalist)John Fogerty had finally relinquished his "lead man" duties to satisfy the musical urges of the two remaining members. The now trio split the songwriting and vocal duties equally. And finally, the formula of this record was doomed because the overall musical feel on this recording was a little unique for CCR - 1972 country, at a time when country simply wasn't cool. Aside from all that, this album should not be taken too seriously, considering its overall fun attitude and lightheartedness. True, this is definitely CCR's worst album, but it is a fun listen if you have an open ear. Lead guitarist John Fogerty was the most obvious example of country delvings in his songs. "Looking For A Reason" will probably remain the oddest choice ever by a constantly successful group for an opening track, and probably the weakest. It was pretty clear Fogerty's heart wasn't put into this album, as he was thinking of future ventures. Despite this, two of his four songs were the only tunes on this album to become minimal hits, and it is fair to say that "Sweet Hitch-Hiker" is an EXCELLLENT rock song. It is probably the only sign anywhere on 'Mardi Gras' of past Creedence triumphs.Read more ›

On their 7th album, CCR lost Tom Fogerty-- and for the first time, Stu Cook & Doug Clifford got to write & sing. The results are mixed... Cook's "Take It Like A Friend" and "Sail Away" are more irritating than ANY "questionable" tunes on the previous 6 albums-- but his "Door To Door" is a pretty good rocker (and "B" side). Clifford's "Need Someone To Hold" and "Tearin' Up The Country" are TOP-NOTCH! Fogerty's "Lookin' For A Reason" is in the same ballpark, and almost a preview of his next project. "Someday Never Comes" is a sad, honest look at family abandonment-- a good song, even if not one of my faves. John also does "Hello Mary Lou", though in this case the cover sounds a bit "stiff". Rick Nelson, though, would repay the favor 9 years later by doing one of John's songs on his PLAYING TO WIN album. Oh yeah, and leftover from the previous summer is one of my FAVORITE CCR singles-- "Sweet Hitch-Hiker". Probably the first CCR song I actually heard on the radio, my brother and I spent some time trying to figure out the name of this song! Considering John "stepped aside" here-- and after went on his own, it seems a shame his brother Tom left before this. Could CCR have "made it" as a real group effort had they stuck with it? This seems like a pretty decent "start". Sadly, we'll never know.

This is CCR's last album. Tom Fogerty had already left the band. Tom left because of John's dominance, and Stu Cook and Doug Clifford were aching to get their songs and voices heard. So John let Stu Cook and Doug Clifford share songwriting and production chores for this final album. It was a disaster for Stu and Doug, but not for John. Stu Cook and Doug Clifford's songs are, at worst, horrible, and, at best, just average. Musically, they're not bad, but they aren't exceptional, like John's are. Lyrically, they're horrible. Vocally, the songs are miles below horrible. Stu Cook has one of the worst voices I've ever heard, and Doug Clifford's voice, while not as godawful as Cook's, isn't much to sing about either. Cook's lead vocal on Sail Away is hilariously bad. It makes me laugh more than most modern comedies. John Fogerty's contributions to the album, Lookin' for a Reason, Someday Never Comes, Sweet Hitchhiker, and the cover of Hello Mary Lou are great CCR songs. They are worth buying the CD for. But man, the rest of it sucks. Fogerty was doing Stu and Doug a favour by not letting them sing and/or write anything. It's a shame that they had to break up like this, but it had to be done...

Reviewer: Middle aged man "Stu" (United States) - See all my reviews

As many people obviously know by now, this album marked the low point for Creedence. It starts off ok with a slow country song, thankfully penned by J Fogerty. Adequate, but certainly not up to his usual standards.

Nothing could prepare me for the next track- "Take it like a friend" written by bassist Stu Cook. It has to be one of the worst songs to make it on an album by a band of this stature. When I first heard it on vinyl many years ago, I thought the record was jumping. It wasn't. The 'vocalist' sounds like a tone deaf drunken man vocalizing to a random backing track, which skips sporadically. After hearing it the first time, I felt bewildered, disoriented, and finally angry. I have almost gotten over this now, but I am just cautioning you so that you can mentally prepare yourself. I wish there had been someone there to warn me. If you can survive this track, you should be ok. Don't give up---there is a glimmer of hope on the distant horizon......

Cook's other 2 tracks -"Sail away" and "Door to door" are instantly forgettable, but a vast improvement over "Take it like a friend" (which I wish I could forget, but I just can't)

Drummer Doug Clifford tries his writing and singing skills on two tracks "Tearin' up the country" & ""What are you gonna do?"-both instantly forgettable.

Ditto for the Clifford-Cook song "Need someone to hold"

"Some day never comes" is another J Fogerty track. Better than the opening track, but still not one of my favorite Fogerty songs.

A cover version of "Hello Mary Lou" does not help matters.

Last track on the album- "Sweet Hitch-hiker is the final song by J Fogerty. I gave the 3-stars for this song alone.
