I Had No Idea That CCR Was A White Group...

.....until I saw them for the first time a couple years ago on YouTube!

They sure had me fooled for a long time with the sound Fogerty's vocals!

"DOO DOO DOO, lookin' out my back door!"

great band.... Fogerty clearly borrowed a lot of his vocal inflections form 1950s R&B, Little Richard in particular

John Fogerty is a good saxplayer as well. He played all instrument on his two "comeback" LPs (John Fogerty, Centerfield). He can play over 20 different instrumnets.

I prefer the singing saxplayer. I listen a lot to: Bullmoose Jackson, Louis Jordan, Buddy Lucas, Eddie Vinson, Red Prysock, King Curtis, J.T. Brown, A.C. Reed, Clarence Clemons .... to today's Eddie Shaw, Woody Woodford, Don Wise, Sax Gordon, Andrew Clark, Bobby Spencer ..... . Are they playing in a differnt way?

I have had a long time love of CCR. Queen is up there for me too. There is just something about these bands that just hits right. Great bands never really get "old".

HEY THOMSAX,

Remember Earl Bostic and his big-sounding Alto from the 1950's? He was more R&B than Jazz or Rock, specialising in lush ballads like "Flamingo".

Other "Big Honkers" were Mighty Joe Houston and Big Jay McNeely, both R&B Tenormen from the mid-'50's.
