Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 309/500!
Incredibly, Creedence Clearwater Revival's third album of 1969! When was the last time anyone churned out music at this break-neck pace, with consistently high-quality songs? Music acts are now considered prolific if they release a trite offering of pabulum every second year. This is the record that epitomizes Creedence's extremely wide range of musical styles. I challenge anyone to find an album by other artists that contains so much variety. Virtually every song is in a unique genre! The tracks show how John Fogerty's song-writing had dramatically improved from the early albums, and the tunes sound very polished, unlike the raw Creedence of the beginning. Many rock critics say that this was the best CCR album and it's difficult fo to argue otherwise.
"Sharp social criticism ("Fortunate Son") and party music ("Down on the Corner") take a ride on the Creedence bandwagon. John Fogerty's ability to wed rockabilly and swamp rock into catchy, complex arrangements gives Willy a durability few rock albums can match." - www.rollingstone.com
