Since it shares its title with John Fogerty's 2005career-spanning hits collection, this double-disc concert album (andassociated DVD, available separately) is unsurprisingly heavy on the Creedence chestnuts that dominate the guitarist/songwriter's history. … see full wiki
Its just amazing that we are in the year 2008 and John Fogerty is still putting out fantastic music. Th new release, Revival sounds strong on the brief listens that I have given to date. However, the live recording The Long Road Home is just phenomenal.
There is an excellent mix of classic Creedence tunes and solo material. John varies the arrangements slightly from song to song. Some tunes are shortened some are lengthened. An all acoustic De Ja Vu All Over Again is very touching. I love the bouncy delightful Looking Out My Backdoor especially when substitutes tangerines and Elvis are singing with the band on the second bridge. I especially enjoy the banter John does between songs. It gives the CD a very intimate feel.
Everything works for me on this release. Soe complain about the songs being too fast or the drummer adding excessive fills but truthfully those are all good things to my ears. The ability to evolve and vary arrangments is what keeps JOhn Fogerty fresh to my ears in this year of 2008.
