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.
