Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willy & The Poor Boys (1969)

Creedence Clearwater Revival (often abbreviated as CCR) were a popular American rock band active from the late 60s to early 70s.

CCR showed no signs of slowing down, as Willy & The Poor Boys was their third album to be released in the year of 1969. It expanded upon the roots-rock formula they had perfected on Bayou Country and Green River, incorporating more diverse textures and ideas. The result was surely their best album to date, with some of their finest songs and most sublime sounds. Alongside eight fantastic John Fogerty tunes (including the rocking "Fortunate Son", a timeless protest song) were covers of the traditional country-blues "The Midnight Special", and an outstanding reading of Leadbelly's "Cotton Fields".
The singles from the album didn't actually fare as well as those from its two predecessors. Nevertheless, getting to #3 with "Down On The Corner" wasn't too bad. The album itself got to #3 as well.
