Green River – Creedence Clearwater Revival

Green River

1969, 8/10
In much the same way that Bayou Country built on their debut, Green River is another step forward for the band, as they outgrow the bluesy boogie that they started the career with. A hint of country starts to drift in, and the most obvious development is the inclusion of acoustic textures – notably ‘Wrote A Song For Everyone’ and ‘Lodi’ are both based around acoustic guitar.

And each album, the complement of Fogerty written originals grows stronger – ‘Bad Moon Rising’ is perhaps the best known, with its combination of upbeat music and doomsday lyrics, but there’s also the swampy grind of the title track and the acoustic despair of ‘Lodi’.

Some of the blues-based material, like ‘Tombstone Shadow’, is a little dispensable, and the album ends meekly, but Green River was Creedence Clearwater Revival’s best album yet, as their rapid development continued.
