Bayou Country > Wiki


Bayou Countryis the CCR record that slips under the radar. The group's 1969 sophomore release birthed two classic-rock staples--"Born on the Bayou" and "Proud Mary." Then there's the characteristically savvy cover ("Good Golly Miss Molly"), the stretch-out jams ("Graveyard Train" and "Keep on Chooglin"), and a couple of seldom-remarked-upon album tracks ("Bootleg" and "Penthouse Pauper"). And that's it--a little more than a half-hour of the Revival gaining speed but still not firing on all cylinders. For a lesser band, it'd be an impressive achievement; for Creedence,Bayou Countryis a mere stepping stone to greater heights.--Steven Stolder

The second album by Creedence Clearwater Revival definitely opened the eyes of the music world to this fine band. John Fogerty's song-writing abilities took a big leap forward with such classic as Proud Mary, Penthouse Pauper, and Born On The Bayou. The rhythm section of Stu Cook and Doug Clifford provide solid support. Only seven songs make this mildly incomplete but the quality is top notch.
