#388: Willy and the Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival

5.23.2011


Willy and the Poor Boys by Creedence Clearwater Revival (1969)

Favorite Track(s): "Down on the Corner" and "Cotton Fields" and "Fortunate Son" and "Don't Look Now"

Thoughts: CCR! OMG, you guys. This album. This album. I feel like Navin Johnson in The Jerk when he leaves Bernadette Peters and says "I don't need you! I don't need anything! Except this...and that's the only thing I need." That's how I feel about this album. I don't need anything except Willy and the Poor Boys. Except for the Beatles catalog. But that's all I need! It's so good. It's so, sooooo good.

Review: I want to marry this album.

Sorry, was that not enough? Ok. "Down on the Corner" is timeless. "Cotton Fields" is fun. "Fortunate Son" is just ridiculously awesome. It makes me feel like a patriot and an anarchist at the same time. "The Midnight Special" had a TV show named after it! (Well, actually that's an old folk song, so not quite...but still!)
