Side O' The Road
Label: Fantasy Records
Willy & the Poorboys has some of CCR's biggest hits, but it's the biblical ominousness of "Don't Look Now" and the pinpoint accuracy of "It Came Out of the Sky" that stand among John Fogerty's finest moments. (Don't miss the Ronald Reagan reference in the latter track.) Also note how blistering an indictment "Fortunate Son" was in 1969, amid the Vietnam War.
