It's 50 years (nov/dec 1968) ago since I started to play the saxophone (no teacher, a Conn Shooting Star alto, a Tandberg tape recorder ...... )!! After a 1-2 years I wanted to play songs that I heard on the radio. Still playing these songs. I was listening a lot to Creedence Clearwater Revival and they had sax on some songs. It's John Fogerty that played the tenor saxopone on CCR's recordings. "Long As I Can See The Light", a slow song in concert Bb (alto in G) and the more uptemo song "Molina" in concert E (alto in C#/Db).
