Fogerty's first "offical" solo album (which Fogerty calls Shep since that is dog on the cover photo by Bob Fogerty)holds its own with Fogerty's solo catalog. Fogerty replicates the classic CCR sound on the album which is reproduced here with better sound courtesy of the 20bit K2 mastering process with better clarity, detail and depth(although clearly from the same master source)than the previous edition.

We get the CD in a replica of the original album sleeve with lyrics but without any bonus tracks. That's a pity as Fogerty recorded a solo single right around the release of this album that would have fit on this album just fine. I keep hoping that single (along with the follow up single he recorded as The Blue Ridge Rangers)will show up some day with superior sound. I'm also still waiting for John to re-release the b-side "My Toot Toot" as a bonus track or on a CD (perhaps a career retrospective--one can always hope)recorded around the time of "Eye of the Zombie".

The songs are a solid batch "Rockin' All Over the World" and "Almost Saturday Night". "The Wall" travels the same ground as CCR tracks like "Commotion". "Travelin' High" (featuring some nice horn work to give it a R&B flavor)is also quite a good song. There are three covers. "You Rascal You" is Ok it isn't a favorite song of mine. He does a nice job on "Lonely Teardrops" and "Sea Cruise". "Where the River Flows" is a gospel tinged country rock tune that would have done any CCR album or Fogerty album proud. "Dream; Song" and "Flying Away" are both top notch with the latter song one of Fogerty's best on the album with an infectious guitar riff and melody. It closes the album on a terrific "note".

John plays all the instruments (much as he did on The Blue Ridge Rangers album).

In 1975 I was 14 years old and an avid reader of the British weekly rock newspaper,"Sounds". I will never forget the edition that first announced the release of "John Fogerty". The reviewer gave it five stars and talked about how we should never judge a book by its cover. On the cover of this album, JCF is sitting on a tree stump holding a stick in his hand and with his dog at his feet. It all looks very serene. It could be an easy listening piece of nothing very much. The reviewer went on to describe the album as an absolute gem which rocks from start to finish. As a CCR fan I was enthused by the review and rushed down to Virgin Record store in Sheffield England to buy the LP. I love this record today as much as I did when it first blasted out of my stereo in 1975. "Sounds" went on to rate it as one of top 5 albums of 1975. It was never much of a hit in England. After CCR split not too many people knew who JCF was. But I did. I moved to the US in 1989. To my amazement it was never much of a hit here either. It appears this sad fact has more to do with legal disputes over Fantasy records than the quality of the music. So if you want to buy it, you'll have to buy the UK import. My advise is go ahead. To avoid ever finding this album deleted and unavailable I own 3 Cds and 3 vinyl versions, including my original 1975 copy. Why is this album so important to me? It has literally been one of my all time favorite records since I first heard it. Moreover, it is without doubt my favorite record made by a US artist. You know that old question about living on desert island and only taking two albums, what would they be..... Well I would take the Beatles White Album and John Fogerty by John Fogerty.Read more ›

Those fans who appreciate John Fogerty's commercially successful releases, Centerfield and Blue Moon Swamp, should check out this self titled solo effort. Its an overlooked gem which is brewing with many styles.
The most familiar song on here is Rockin' All Over The World. It features an upbeat tempo and a stunning piano solo in the middle. Almost Saturday Night is another song others may be familiar with. Like the arrangment between the guitars and the drums.
The real hidden gems on this record are Dream/Sonmg, Travelling High, and When The River Flows. I love the way the stylings so casually change on Dream/Song from acoustic to mellow jazz to rock n roll oer the coruse of the songs verses. The horn arrangement on Travelling High is oh so captivating and soothing on When The River Flows.
Even though I singled out my favorites, this entire record(yes I have the vinyl again) is a winner through and through. You'll like it and like it as you're rocking all over the world.

I bought this album on vinyl years ago after completing my CCR collection and it just blew me away!
That must have been more than 20 years ago and now I have the album on CD. After all these years it is still among my top 10 of all time favourite albums.
As far as I know John Fogerty was kinda dissapointed with the reception this album got and he later admitted that he was not 100% satisfied with the end result. I still wonder how much the reception this album got in the US coloured his opinion.
In Europe however this album was a smash hit and The Netherlands in particular regard John's album as a genuine CLASSIC!
So stop whining about the mix and drums not being upfront in the mix. You try to make an album worth of 10 songs on your own.
A genuine Dutch Fogerty fan
