- John Fogerty/CCR Appreciation
I love that band, but am always surprised at who little they seem to resonate with people. I can’t think of a single friend of mine that likes them.
Do they have some kind of negative association? They were referred to in an episode of ‘Archer’ as a band that only the weird guy liked.
Oh well. Whatever the case, I agree with you, OP, and think they, and Fogarty, are great.Posted 4 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
I used to really enjoy their music but suspect they were seen as a little ‘uncool’ by some. Don’t forget that around this time there was an amazing amount of new music with different genres and boundaries being pushed. *Sigh* I remember it well!

They were a bit left field of the west coast/hippy/psychedelics which went global, playing a more American southern style. They were and still are huge in America I believe, appealing to the southern central red neck types. Same as the Grateful Dead, were/are massive at home, but not really revered elsewhere or remembered.Posted 4 years ago
there are a lot of british bands who were huge in their time and had loads of hits, but now almost forgotten, bands like The Pretty Things.molgripsSubscriber
I bought a double CD of their hits on a whim a while back, partly cos I was buying CDs of old bands I’d heard of in a vaguely cool context, and partly cos The Dude listens to them. It’s frigging ace! Always gets cranked up when it comes on in the car.
