John Fogerty is one of the most respected songwriters in the history of Rock and Roll. On his new album "Wrote A Song For Everyone," Fogerty produces a masterpiece, drawing from his classic songbook of hits and collaborating with some of the biggest superstars in popular music. Alongside these stellar collaborations, Fogerty has also penned two brand new original songs for the album. 14 songs, 16 special guests, one songwriter, and one amazing album.

Customer Reviews

What I enjoy the most is how each artist brings their own take to the song.
Fogerty Fanatic
It has been in the car CD player since I got it and has been played through at least a dozen times, without changing to another CD.
Poor old dad
John Fogerty has updated his classic songs using duets with a new generation of singers and new arrangements.

When I first heard about this album coming out, my intitial response was, "Great, John Fogerty has fallen into the old trap of releasing a cheesy duets album of a bunch of rehashed CCR stuff." But to my pleasant surpise and astonishment, this album is outstanding and breathes a freshness into some of American's greatest rock and roll songs ever written. What I enjoy the most is how each artist brings their own take to the song. True, some like "Almost Saturday Night" don't stray too far from the original, but others like Bob Seger's take on "Who'll Stop the Rain" and Miranda Lambert and Tom Morello on "Wrote a Song for Everyone", showcase these songs in a different and refreshing light. John's two new songs, "Mystic Highway" and "Train of Fools", prove that he is still loaded with a great deal of that songwriting magic. I would be willing to bet that this CD has pumped new life into John Fogerty, and will also introduce him to a whole new audience of folks under the age of 40 who are only familiar with his better known CCR hit singles.

The cynic in me thought, oh here we go again, another R&R veteran cashing in on his old hits. But then Rolling Stone rated this 5 stars and that got my attention. And wow, this is just terrific.

One mark of truly great songs (vs. great recordings) is that they can be reworked many times and sound fresh and new each time, as long as care is taken with the arrangement. Case in point: Proud Mary. The original with CCR, Tina Turner's smoking version, and the version here with Jennifer Hudson and a New Orleans all-star cast are all very different. And each is exceptional.

It becomes completely obvious after only one listen that Fogerty absolutely wanted to avoid the "cashing in" scenario. This is a labor of love. The first clue is that almost every song was recorded in a different studio, meaning Fogerty traveled to wherever was convenient for the collaborators to ensure that the recordings were done together live in the studio, not tacked on after-the-fact overdubs. It makes a huge difference as the collaborators are clearly thrilled to be involved with one of the greatest rock-and-roll songwriters of all time. You can't fake this. For evidence, just listen to the Foo Fighters absolutely shred the opening track "Fortunate Son". Is it possible to be filled with even more venom and bile than the original? Apparently so, but who'd have thought it?

Some of the tracks are quite true to the original, some deviate significantly. No matter. All are terrific. There's also two lesser known solo songs and two new songs. Thankfully, these are interspersed with the rest of the album, not just tacked on to the end as "bonus" tracks. Those four songs might not be anthems that everybody knows by heart but they are damn good and kudos to Mr.

For Fogerty fans, the next best thing to a new Fogerty album with new Fogertunes -- is a new Fogerty album with old Fogertunes!

I agree with some other reviewers here that I was skeptical about this duets album. After all, I thought old John had taken a victory NAP on the rather unnecessary "Blue Ridge Rangers Ride Again" album a while back, lending only vocals and some background guitar.

Fortunately, here he seems again fully engaged, as a songwriter, singer, guitarist, arranger, and producer.

In short, Fogerty fans will want this album because the Foge and friends breathe new life into some of his best songs. And fans of good music will want this album because -- well, you're not going to find so many classic songs so well played and sung on any other album this year, unless Bob Seger comes up with another "Face the Promise."

There's some wondrous stuff here. The Foo Fighters knock "Fortunate Son" out of the park, and Miranda Lambert and Tom Morello take "Wrote a Song for Everyone" places that lovely ballad has never been. Brad Paisley and the Foge trade scorching gee-tar licks on "Hot Rod Heart," and Alan Toussaint brings his Dixieland magic to "Proud Mary." As for Jennifer Hudson's singing on that timeless song -- lord, but that girl has a set of pipes, and she pulls out all the stops here!

I was also thrilled to hear the new rendition of "Someday Never Comes" by John and a group I had never heard of called Dawes. This song is a lost classic if ever there was one, from CCR's disastrous "Mardi Gras" album -- and I don't know if John has sung it for forty years. I always thought maybe it was too painful for him to sing, given the heartbreaking theme of fathers and sons failing to live up to their promises.

My husband is a big fan of John Fogerty. It is a great CD. I believe he listened to it at least three times in the day we received it. Great service.

I'm spoiled by the excellence of CCR originals so (by comparison) the remakes pale by many shades. The new tracks are good, especially Mystic Highway. The rest is a celebration of CCR legacy but ho hum in the long run.
