5.0 out of 5 stars "Oh My Lord, Oh My Lord...." June 12 2004
By Barry
Format:Audio CD
John Fogerty, the reigning frontman to one of the best and most influential rock bands of the mid to late '60's, had left the band and had gone solo. No surprise there. When he did leave, one wondered what the next step his career and sound would take. Would the Creedence music and sound(all due to Fogerty)continue?. Yes. But what did Fogerty do when he went solo and released his first solo record in 1973?. He delivered a hardcore country album. This is by no means a real departure for John or from some of the music of CCR. There was a lot of country in their sound and that type of music. It had always been done in the band, but never a full album of it. There are a couple tunes that are straddling the line of traditional country and the country/rock sound of some of CCR's songs. But it's mostly stone cold country. Something Fogerty is a master at, and something most country fans probably wished he did more of since country is filled with generic soft pop/rock. The albums opens with the toe tapping jumbo blaster, "Blue Ridge Mountain Blues", a traditional old number Fogerty makes his. He then covers "Somewhere Listening(For My Name), which was a song done by Archie Branlee of the Mississippi Blind Boys. "You're The Reason" is a classic sounding country tune, originally done by Bobby Edwards, and it fits perfectly to Fogerty's voice. The best track on the album is "Jambalaya(On The Bayou", an old Hank Williams classic. A teriffic song that sounds as if John could of written it himself. Surprisingly, it was a top 20 hit on the Billboard singles chart, and the other hit here was the harder sounding "Hearts Of Stone", which was a top 40 hit at #37. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong first solo album from John Fogerty Sept. 7 2002
Format:Audio CD
Fogerty's first solo album was started concurrently with the last CCR album. While it's nice to have it in print on CD, it's desperately in need of remastering. Fogerty aquits himself quite well on these remakes of classic country & western and gospel tunes. The arrangements don't necessarily improve the originals but have Fogerty's classic sound crafted around the original songs.
While his one man band isn't perfect, there's a charm and some very nice playing throughout the album. A suggestion to Fantasy Records--since you don't have enough material to do a Fogerty box set why not reissue the album with the follow up Blue Ridge Rangers single Back in the Hills/You Don't Owe Me as bonus tracks and reissue it in state of the art 24 bit sound (or in the SACD format).
Since Fogerty's self title debut isn't available in the US but is available as an import, I'd suggest doing the same with that album. Fogerty cut a strong single prior to the release of John Fogerty (Comin' Down The Road/Ricochet). Adding that single to Fogerty's second solo album (the first offically issued under his name) with enhanced sound would be greatly apreciated by CCR/Fogerty fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL I AIN'T NEVER April 4 2002
Format:Audio CD
John Fogerty's first solo album turned out to be one of the best buys that I have ever made in my life. Hearing his version of the the classic Webb Pierce song "I Ain't Never" is worth the price alone. In fact Fogerty was able to make each of these songs "his own." I wish he would do another album like this again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Concept Album? Not Quite, but Close... March 11 2005
Format:Audio CD
With or without his bandmates in Creedence Clearwater Revival, Mr.Fogerty has always been one of the most artless performers that I've ever known; he's certainly never tried to be anything other than the talented singer/songwriter that he is(unlike some acts who adopted grandiose images that they could never continue off-stage: the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, the Moody Blues & David Bowie among them...John Lennon called them "Sons of Beatles").
And on the face of it, this album is a simple collection of country & western "oldies"(even by 70's standards) whose repertoire is taken from the bluegrass & gospel heroes that inspired the artist in his younger days(similar to the rock & roll "farewell" album that John Lennon would do two years later in 1975).
But this album, the Blue Ridge Rangers(his first solo album after disbanding CCR over legal and familial issues), rapidly shows itself to have an underlying thematic unity that reveals itself as one of the most low-key and honest of the "concept albums" that came to maturity in the late sixties.
For instance, the name of this album suggests that this is a group-effort being released by someone calling themselves the "Blue Ridge Rangers", but that name is actually taken from one of the songs contained on the album itself, namely 'Blue Ridge Mountain Blues'; and local legend in my hometown claims that Mr.Fogerty handled all of the instrumental/vocal chores on this album all by his lonesome self...

The history of rock is often the history of roads not taken, ideas picked up and then dropped, "side projects" that suggested new horizons that were scarcely explored. Read more
