Editorial Reviews

Produced by FOGERTY, one of rock's most important artists and a national treasure who s sold over 100 million records, WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE is a celebration of his iconic songbook and a collection of 12 classics and deep tracks from his remarkable canon of hits as well as two brand new songs, Mystic Highway and Train of Fools. FOGERTY performed alongside an array of today's biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds including Foo Fighters, Bob Seger, Keith Urban, Jennifer Hudson, Kid Rock, Brad Paisley, the Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert and more. The album also sees FOGERTY teaming with an acclaimed new band like Dawes, who were eager to acknowledge the groundbreaking songwriter/guitarist's titanic influence. FOGERTY also recorded his classic Lodi with his sons Shane and Tyler Fogerty at Abbey Road Studios in London.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a Pleasant Surprise May 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible, not just for CCR fans May 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Foge Takes a Victory Lap May 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD
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.

This new album is like a surprise visit from a long lost friend! Fogerty revisits some of the old CCR songs, dusts them off, shakes them up a little and makes them seem brand new. On first listen, I wasn't sure that I particularly liked the changes he had made to some of the most favorite songs from my youth. Messing with perfection is a phrase that came to mind. The longer I listened and the further I got into the album, I slowly realized that I was again being wooed by the same sounds and rhythms that had first drawn me to CCR so many years ago. Fogerty's guttural voice barking out the rock and roll lyrics as only he can, with those driving rhythms that are so perfect for either cruising the strip on a Saturday night or just blasting down the highway, leaving your troubles so very far behind. I especially like the remake of "Lodi" which features him with his sons, Shane & Tyler on guitars. The album is mainly duets with the likes of Bob Seger, Foo Fighters, Keith Urban, Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert, Alan Jackson, Jennifer Hudson & Kid Rock, but he does do a few by himself and throws in a nice mix of new material as well. If you are a fan of the old CCR or just Fogerty himself, "Ya can't go wrong when you play a little bit of that Creedence Song!"
