John Fogerty at ACL

-A.S. I was right, when I said that John Fogerty’s set at ACL would play like a CCR greatest hits album. He mixed in a few of his solo tunes as well, but it was his classics that stood out.

Fogerty didn’t hold back from the start, opening up the set with “Travelin’ Band.” Before long he had already rattled off a list of hits that included “Bad Moon Rising,” “Green River,” “Lookin’ Out My Back Door” and “Born on a Bayou.”Having warmed up the crowd with what they all came to hear, he eased into one of his new songs, “Don’t You Wish it Was True?” Zack wasn’t digging Fogerty’s country twang, which especially came through on the new material.

Fogerty introduced an instrumental jam with a jaw dropping tapping solo. Even Zack had to admit that while he wasn’t in love with all of that material, that Fogerty could indeed rock. Some more CCR material followed, including “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” and “Down on the Corner.” The cow bell intro to the latter song inspired several “I’ve got a fever” and “needs more cow bell” chants from the crowd, myself included.Fogerty finished up his set with the two songs that you knew he had to play before his time was up. “Fortune Son” was every bit as awesome as I knew it would be. “Proud Mary” was good too, but the soul child in me still prefers the Ike and Tina version.

    I love that CCR song “Midnight Special.” It was on the Twilight Zone movie soundtrack. Did he play that song at all?
