Creedence Clearwater Revival - Pendulum (1970)

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

1970's Pendulum was CCR's sixth album in two years. It turned out to be one of their more diverse ones, as John Fogerty overdubbed Hammond organ and horns, all of which he played himself. His almost dictatorial role as the band's leader however was beginning to cause tensions, and during the recording of the album his brother Tom Fogerty finally threw in the towel and left to pursue a solo career. Despite these troubles behind the scenes, the album turned out to be one of their most interesting and rewarding, if the final track (a tedious six minute sound collage) can be excused. It made it to #5 on the album chart and a single was subsequently released in 1971 - "Have You Ever Seen The Rain?" b/w "Hey Tonight" made it to #8.

I just had to leave you a note. Good grief, I am soooo embarrassed. I am sure that I have left comments to you and called you Esther more than once. Now why I did that, I have NO idea. Meant to leave thank yous to you, but not to get the name wrong. Really, please accept my apologies. I think my white hair has finally affected my brain.
