Album: John Fogerty, Wrote a Song for Everyone (Columbia)
Saturday 25 May 2013
A dozen Creedence classics and two new songs, rendered with a cast of grateful legatees, including Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Bob Seger, Jennifer Hudson and Fog's own sons: "Bad Moon", "Lodi", the rain songs, "Proud Mary" …
Gratifyingly, the playing and singing are as hard and focal as you'd require. (Imagine, a Fog with no cogency?) But it remains the case that this kind of thing only has something to say about distance travelled, no more. And who let Tom Morello in the studio?
