Our Review

Willy and the Poor Boys was Creedence Clearwater’s fourth studio album and the third to be released in 1969. Working at this incredible pace, singer-songwriter John Fogerty came through in the clutch, authoring many of the band’s classic tunes in rapid succession. From the opening stomp of “Down on the Corner,” Fogerty’s clearly in an ebullient mood and his upbeat approach gives even his angry moments (“Fortunate Son”) a lightness of being that allows the listener to dance along. This California-bred rocker continues to obsess on an imagined southern youth in Louisiana (the country fried cover of Lead Belly’s “Cotton Fields,” the jugband-harmonica instrumental blues of “Poorboy Shuffle,” and the slow and moody “Feelin’ Blue”) with a stunning authenticity. The ominous rockabilly base of “Don’t Look Now” and the minor-key melancholy of “Effigy” represent the foreboding vibe he would perfect with the band’s next album, 1970’s Cosmo’s Factory. The 40th Anniversary Edition includes a studio version of “Down on the Corner” with Booker T. and the MGs, and live versions of “Fortunate Son” and “It Came Out of the Sky” that illustrate that Fogerty often restrains himself in the studio, as his singing here goes straight for overdrive.

Customer Reviews

Dude, this is my favorite CCR album (5 stars)

This album has some of greatest songs, like Down on the Corner, Cotton Fields, and Fortunate Son, among others.


The Great American Band notches their second classic (5 stars)

With Concord Music Group having purchased the Fantasy catalog, the fortieth anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s debut LP provides a suitable opportunity for a fresh round of reissues. All six of the original foursome’s albums (from 1968’s Creedence Clearwater Revival through 1970’s Pendulum) have been struck from new digital masters and augmented by previously unreleased tracks. Those who purchased the 2001 box set can pick

1 (5 stars)

Just try and beat this, go on, i dare you.


Biography

Formed: 1967 in El Cerrito, CA
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '60s, '70s

At a time when rock was evolving further and further away from the forces that had made the music possible in the first place, Creedence Clearwater Revival brought things back to their roots with their concise synthesis of rockabilly, swamp pop, R&B, and country. Though CCR was very much a group in their tight, punchy arrangements, their vision was very much singer, songwriter, guitarist, and leader John Fogerty's. Fogerty's classic compositions for Creedence both evoked enduring images of Americana…
