15. Jambalaya (The Blue Ridge Rangers, 1973)

“John Fogerty has reached The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with Creedence Clearwater and has also had a long and successful solo career. At the beginning of his solo career, he recorded as the Blue Ridge Rangers, which had him playing all the instruments. He released a cover of the classic Hank Williams songs, “Jambalaya,” on December 2, 1972, and it reached number 16 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart. “Jambalaya” may have been a county song but Fogerty gave it a rocking rendition. It remains one of his best solo efforts.”

14. Almost Saturday Night (John Fogerty, 1975)

“John Fogerty was a great one for recycling his own ideas, so much so that he was once sued by an old, obviously greedy and vindictive publisher for plagiarising one of his own songs (“The Old Man Down The Road” from “Run Through The Jungle”). Here he updates his old Creedence hit “Hey Tonight” for this crunching side-two opening “here comes the weekend” rocker from his eponymous solo album which finds him still in great voice and laying down another barnstorming groove just like the old days.”

13. Rockin’ All Over the World (John Fogerty, 1975)

“Accept no Quo substitute. The original and best version of this great song which proved Fogerty could still rock like a good ‘un in the ’70s.”

12. I Can’t Help Myself (Centerfield, 1985)

“Best song I have ever heard every time I listen to it I feel as if I am in that same place and I have needed to get out this song was the key to it, greatest song ever”

11. Premonition (Premonition, 1998)

“While Premonition isn’t exactly the snarling beast that the (very few) great live albums are, it indicates that Fogerty knows where his strength lies and he’s more than happy to fill the majority of this set with Creedence classics. While Fogerty’s backing band are solid and play with gusto, they lack the energy of Creedence at their best – Doug Clifford’s drumming is particularly missed.”

10. Big Train (From Memphis) (Centerfield, 1985)

“A nostalgic, loping tribute to Sun records from John Fogerty, who can turn out stuff like this in his sleep, remember “Lookin’ Out My Back Door”. So we get nice echo on the production, some spare guitar licks and a light rockabilly feel to proceedings without it ever really hitting top speed.”

9. Walking In a Hurricane (Blue Moon Swamp, 1997)

“Frankly speaking I do not understand the lyrics of this song, but the reason I voted for this song, is the guitar, man its just brilliant. Now I do not even bother finding the lyrics, the guitars blow my mind away.”

8. Searchlight (Centerfield, 1985)

“The song its very awesome… I love this! the first part of the song its very good… all the song its good, if you listen this song you are going to love this song!”

7. Wrote a Song for Everyone (Wrote a Song for Everyone, 2013)

“Fantastic songs, but nothing on this CD is as good as the original versions. I don’t know what the point of albums like this are. And someone, please kill Kid Rock. The only thing I came close to enjoying was the Zac Brown Brand version of Bad Moon Rising, but, again, not as good as the original version.”

6. DÉJÀ Vu (Deja Vu All Over Again, 2004)

“‘Deja Vu’ is a perfect protest song if ever there was one; disguising itself in a magnificent production, wrapped in the assets of a great rock song, sung by an artist with the skill and talent to pull it off with the sincerity needed to do justice and cause us to reflect on the fact, that if we do not remember the failings of our past we WILL repeat them”

5. I Saw It On T.V (Centerfield, 1985)

“I am in love with this song at the moment. It is honestly one of the best songs I have heard in a long time.”

4. Mr. Greed (Centerfield, 1985)

:Musical perfection that shows exactly what this band is all about. Beauty through heavy guitar riffs, insane solos, and fantastic vocals.:

3. Rock and Roll Girls (Centerfield, 1985)

“Probably the most modern sounding track on “Centrefield” “Rock and Roll Girls” almost makes me think that Fogerty had been listening to the Cars’ “My Best Friend’s Girl” before he wrote this.”

2. Centerfield (Centerfield, 1985)

“A song about baseball…not quite as-it-was but more as-we-wish-it-used-to-be. Where it’s boys playing a boys game for the sheer joy of it, in a world without greedy owners or spitballs of oppressive contracts. (Never mind fixed games and steroids.) It’s pleasant enough, but the fact is – I’ve mainly heard this song over the last thirty years in conjunction with Major League Baseball or some related sales pitch (Opening Day savings on Ford Pickups!) so it now sounds like something of a sham to me.”

1. The Old Man Down the Road (Centerfield, 1985)

“John Fogerty rips himself off and gets sued for it – welcome to America. The weirdly threatening lyric and catchy guitar riff help keep things interesting.”
