After a decade of silence, John Fogerty made a hit with the yuppie generation with "Centerfield." You all know the song "Put Me in coach/I'm ready to play today.....look at me/I can be/centerfield." You here it at any professional baseball game you go to. Well kiddies, that is John Fogerty. He was once the creative force behind a band called Creedence Clearwater Revival in the 60's.
This album is really a comment on John's relationship with Fantasy Records and its top man Saul Zaentz. To make a long story short, John and Saul had a bad relationship, so John waited out his contract and eventually signed with Warner Bros. And just like any good artist, he expressed it in song. "Vanz Kant Danz" is one of these songs that references Saul.
A pretty good album, but the 80's production really takes away from a gritty performance that had become expected from Fogerty. Also check out "The Old Man is Down The Road," Fantasy tried to sue John for copyright infringement on himself.
