ACHTERGROND ** BACKGROUND
CREEDENCE: BAYOU COUNTRY
“The group’s sound is very reminiscent of that of the early Stones — hard rock, based in blues. John Fogerty carries the group with his good lead guitar, in addition to his good vocal and harp work. He also wrote all of Creedence’s original songs, and arranged and produced the album. He probably swept out the studio when the recording was finished, too. Despite John’s dominance, the group has a solid overall sound. Stu Cook on bass, brother Tom Fogerty on rhythm guitar, and Doug Clifford on drums are all good musicians; they lay down a heavy backing for Fogerty, and the result is a very tight sound. (…) Overall, the material in Bayou Country is not always strong, but Creedence Clearwater Revival plays with enough gusto to overcome this problem. With the stronger material, they are excellent. It seems to me though, that CCR has just about exhausted its supply of blues-rock numbers. They have produced two fine albums; so far, so good. But I think (and hope) that we will see new directions on their forthcoming albums”. Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-album-reviews/bayou-country-86757/
STEPPENWOLF Great Protest Rock
“Steppenwolf may be best remembered for its pair of ubiquitous hits, but the band had far more to say than that. John Kay and his bandmates too often gave in to their polemics, trapping some of their lyrics in the late ’60s and early ’70s; while nuance was never their strong point, they still knew how to make an artful point. On 1970’s Monster, an overlooked masterpiece, they managed to create a thematically cohesive album that managed to remain concise even while containing the group’s most epic moment.
That epic piece, “Monster/Suicide/America” opens the album with a nine-minute history of the American debacle. Steppenwolf eviscerates the US, criticizing easy targets like slavery, invasive policing, and unjust war, but the group complicates the matter. Kay reifies America and the ideals of the country, establishing her (yes, it’s a “she”) as an entity pre-existing and continuing outside of the thoughts and actions of the populous, capable of rescuing her “sons and daughters.” At the same time, they create a monster that’s risen up from the actions of the citizenry, but not only from government atrocities, but also from ordinary people who “got fat and grew lazy.” Alternating between second and third person point-of-view, Kay targets everyone, in the process discovering that between the evils of the monster and the good of the mythic America lies the suicide—the very drive for freedom is a death drive based on narcissism and corruption”.
