Product Description

John Fogerty reclaims his rightful place among America's most iconic and revered artists with Revivial; 12 all-new songs that incorporate the best elements of an artist that deeply resonates with generations of music fans and thousands of other artists he has influenced throughout the years.

Amazon.com

The self-referential title of Fogerty's first album in three years is no mere play on words; this is as close as he's gotten in a long while to duplicating the loose swamp blues, country, folk, soul and rock that he so memorably created a template for in Creedence Clearwater Revival. Thankfully the advertisement for downloaded ringtones in the disc's booklet is the only contemporary influence creeping into this stripped-down set of rootsy rockers and ballads. Fogerty's voice sounds great throughout; passionate, more committed and comfortable with these songs than he has seemed in years. His material has often leaned towards politics, especially as it concerns the working class, but seldom as directly as on the gutsy choogle of "Long Dark Night" and the rollicking "I Can’t Take it No More." He seems like a cranky dad on "It Ain't Right," railing about spoiled pop tarts in the spotlight, and "Summer of Love"'s look back at the titular time in the late '60s falls on the schlock side. But Fogerty charges into "Longshot" like the angry young man of "Fortunate Son," singing "I ain't got no 'ristocrats a-hangin' in my tree" with an assurance and intensity that reaches through the speakers and grabs the listener. Just like in the old days. --Hal Horowitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Back In The Saddle October 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I think we have finally found the lost ingredient missing from today's pop music. For a while, John Fogerty provided the greatest pop songs in the United States of America. His recordings with Creedence Clearwater Revival represent some of the most universally beloved songs that ever hit the airwaves. They were simple, but they were damn good, and will probably still sound great in 3007. It is easy, though, to underestimate the talent that it takes to create something so pure and simple, and yet so fresh and unique. Eventually that is just what happened. Even his own band underestimated Fogerty's talents, and insisted on turning CCR into a democracy. Once everybody started submitting material, the band floundered and lost its true strength; what good is a Creedence song unless it features John Fogerty's magnificent voice and his addictive brand of swamp pop? Fogerty's band imploded, and then his record label turned against him, denying him royalties to the songs that made so many people happy.
"Revival" not only signals a return to form, it also represents a call to arms. Once again, it is time for the master to take control of the pop charts. John Fogerty has not played with this much conviction and focus since 1972. Even over his sporadic series of solo albums, Fogerty never played with such gusto. "Revival" represents a fresh start, and it does so by embracing the past that he kept so long in denial. "Don't You Wish It Was True" is simple as dirt, and yet it immediately evokes days when the radio was overflowing with soon-to-be classic melodies. It is so instantly appealing that it could have been the leadoff track for "Willy and the Poor Boys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on the Bayou October 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
John Fogerty's Revival is the best Classic Rock album since Paul McCartney's Band on the Run--hey, it only took 30 years, coming at a period where I've all but given up on music and most of my favorite acts. Fortunately, I've got over 3,000 CDs from the 1950s to 1990s to comfort myself with, but I've always loved getting a NEW disc with great music. And, Revival is one of the few discs (like Sticky Fingers, Green River, The Doors, Sgt. Pepper's) where I can listen to every song!

I've been a fan of the Fogerty sound since I picked up Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1968, where I fell in love with Susie Q and I Put A Spell On You -- John's first swamp rockers. John's always had one of the top five voices in Rock music right up there with John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry, Paul Rodgers and Paul McCartney. But it never hit me just how good it was until the wife and I heard him on one of the R&R Hall of Fame specials singing Be-Bop A Lula where he just blew Springsteen and others right out of their shoes! (John, manybe on your next release you can do a new version of it?) I loved the Premonition DVD, and it proved conclusively that John's voice is and was the Voice of Rock & Roll.

Yes, I loved the Centerfield and Blue Moon Swamp albums, but this new release is head-and-shoulders above those two wonderful albums. Revival ranks right up there with his best Credeence material, "Green River," Bayou Country" and "Cosmo's Factory." Frankly, I'm amazed at how rejuvenated Fogerty sounds; his voice still sounds like a man 30 years younger, and he plays guitar both tastefully and with restraint -- Rock music just doesn't get much better than this! And John can shred too, just listen to Summer of Love!

I've had Revival in the car CD player now for almost a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Effortless, Consistent and Wonderful Album October 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
John Fogerty has always been at his best when it seemed as if he was creating music that was effortless and coming from a joyful place. This is about as effortless and joyful as it gets. The great songs are plentiful with "Natural Thing," "Longshot," "River is Waiting," and "Broken Down Cowboy" being highlights. After all these years, Mr. Fogerty is writing music that rivals his CCR days. It is an exciting thing to witness. You will seriously enjoy this album!

Fogerty takes his own advice on this album: the attitude of this album would fit snugly on an old Creedence record. Never fear, though--Fogerty isn't retreading old ground, but blazing new pathways. This is easily his best solo album since CENTERFIELD, and in many ways is superior to some of his Creedence work (though not all of it; I'm a CCR fan 'til the day I die, and I'm not the least bit ashamed to say it).

Fogerty's solo albums have been hit-and-miss; they've all featured some great songs, pasted alongside some truly regretful ones. There aren't any REAL regretful songs on here, though I think "Natural Thing" is a bit too hokey to be placed alongside the rest of the material (great rhythm, though). It surprised me to find that most of this album is a keeper. It IS a bit politically charged, of course, and that's something you'll have to grit your teeth and bear. No matter what your stance on politics in music is (I'm usually against it), or what your personal political viewpoints are, you have to admire Fogerty's honesty. The rage you hear in "I Can't Take It No More" is genuine, and this song is easily one of the album's best, politics aside. "Long Dark Night" and "Gunslinger," the other two majorly political tunes, are also standouts. "It Ain't Right" takes aim at celebrities, and you can hear true bitterness in Fogerty's vocals, as well as a little tongue-in-cheek sarcastic wit. That sarcasm is full-blown in "Creedence Song"--yet is melded with a heartfelt love for the music. And "Don't You Wish It Was True" just shines on so many levels, I can't even begin to go into it.

John Fogerty back on Fantasy?!
Also, as I understand it, the new owner is taking steps to get the millions of dollars in royalties John Fogerty claims to have been duped out of put back into his pocket.

From what I've read, the feud is based upon the refusal of the other band members to stand with Fogerty ( and jeopordize... Read More

The cover reminds me of his Blue Ridge Rangers album.
I Don't know what song you heard, but the whole CD is so much better than his last one, which I hardly played. I've had "Revival" now for nearly 2 months and it's a complete and delightful throwback to his CCR days, as the third song on it touchingly will tell you.

Tell it like it is?....or how you THINK it is?
AMEN! I love Fogerty/CCR music, but I will not buy a cd that is a cheap political stump by someone who has never had to actually try to make a living in the socialist economy that his generation has provided for us here in California. If John and the other potheads from San Francisco spent as... Read More

Hope it's not Deja Vu all over again again
I didn't feel disappointed at all with Fogerty's last album...the title track expressed what a lot of us felt then and feel now, and when the album came out, John did one of those A&E "Live By Request" shows and the new stuff seemed to fit right in with the old stuff to these ears at... Read More
