What People are Saying About This
A lively gathering of essays on John Fogerty's Creedence Clearwater Revival, the funky (but clean-cut) Americana rock band that scored a fistful of Top Ten hits in the 60s, without finding a firm place in the decade's rock hierarchy. Here a baker's dozen of perceptive music writers tell how good the band was and why it ended up an inch away from super-stardom.
