Description

Willy & The Poor Boys, the fourth album by one of the world''s all-time greatest rock bands, Creedence Clearwater Revival, remains a top-selling album in the CCR catalog with over 2 million copies sold to date. Reaching the top 50 in six countries upon its release in 1969, including France where it went to #1, the album stands as a landmark international success and one that cemented the band''s legacy as a vanguard of American rock ''n'' roll. This newly re-issued vinyl edition contains the ubiquitous chart-topping hit, ''Down On The Corner,'' which rocketed into the top 10 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the US upon its release in 1969 and continues to be a mainstay on classic rock radio today. Additionally, the visceral ''Fortunate Son'' is included here an incendiary protest song that became inextricably linked to the Vietnam war, resulting in its addition to the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2014 for being ''culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.'' One of the greatest pure rock ''n'' roll records ever cut, Willy & The Poor Boys is an absolute ''must-have'' for any serious classic rock fan.

The vinyl version is not a 180g audiophile record. The sound is adequate for the early technology used and reproduced well on this vinyl that is pressed well, lacks pops or crackles. The music needs no reviewing: ''Down on the corner'' and the ''Midnight Special'' are truly special. If you are looking to add to your vinyl collection, this is a good analogue recording that is well preserved and reproduced on vinyl.

Great CCR

Great CCR album. This is a replacement for the vinyl album that I bought back in the early 70s which was lost in one of my numerous moves. Bought the CD years ago but is just not the same. This completes my CCR vinyl collection.

I have a nice, rather high end sound system, complete with the 5.1 surround set of speakers, all that. I got the set up a couple of years ago after returning from Iraq. I have bought up just about all the multi-channel SACD''s that I have even a passing interest in, including DVD Audio discs. A good thing, too, because discs that I spent 17 dollars and some change in 2008 now go for exorbitant prices.

About all that is left for me to buy in the way of Classic Rock are Genesis, Kinks and Elton John offerings. I detest all three of those groups, but will probably hold my nose and buy a few.

I have also started buying stereo SACD discs, and usually am very satisfied with the sound. So, it was time to buy up the Creedence SACD''s. I got the Cosmo''s Factory disc a while ago, and it is first rate, booming sound, every nuance available to be heard, even though it is stereo.

So, I put Willie into the slot and sat back to listen to it, in great anticipation. I do like Creedence, and like them a lot. I hadn''t heard Willie in a few years, so I was looking forward to the experience.

A bassy muddy mess, with no high end to speak of was what greeted me. Very disappointed with the SACD sound. Haven''t listened to the regular stereo yet, but I hope you can actually hear the cymbals in a form other than a thuddy whump.

The album is a Classic, 5 stars. The sound quality, for an SACD, is one star.

I think there is nothing else to say, I agree with most other 5-star reviews here. Always liked CCR songs, but never really listened to them until now, such a great music, you can fell the soul in it, and thanks to SACD the sound is beautiful, clean and all dynamic. You can fell the drums like if you where there if you got a capable stereo system, play Poorboy Shuffle at high volume, what a great experience. The reverberation on Fogerty''s voice on "Don''t Look Now" takes you back in time, when real musicians with real instruments and real voices filled homes and streets with great music and rhythms. I can only imagine, I was never there... I''m 23.

For those who experienced those times, it would be great if some of you could post your experiences and anecdotes.

By the late sixties and early seventies The Creedence Clearwater Revival were one of if not the biggest American Band led by John Fogerty they produced a series of wonderful singles including classics such as Proud Mary [Ike & Tina Turner did a wonderful version], Bad Moon Rising, Up Around The Bend and from this album the fabulous angry Fortunate Son. Of the albums by Creedence my 2 favourites are Cosmos Factory and this one Willie And The Poor Boys, the bands sound has been described as swamp rock, music with a southern American vibe which is a mixture of country, blues and rock this was surprising as the band didn''t hale from Alabama but from California!! . The album begins with Down On The Corner which has a sort of funky country rhythm it is followed by the rocking It Came Out Of The Sky then comes the country flavoured Cotton Fields this is as good a start to an album as you will find and it continues with tracks such as Midnight Special and of course Fortunate Son the last 2 tracks of the original album tend to lose slightly the momentum set up by the opening tracks then there are the extra tracks include 2 live tracks recorded on a tour of Europe and a version of Down On The Corner recorded with Booker T And The MG''S. So this is Creedence at the zenith of their popularity it didn''t last the band were unhappy with John Fogerty''s dominance of the band and pushed for more participation in the material this created acrimony within the group and by 1972 the band split with wounds that never healed.

I have never enjoyed talking about Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band''s back catalogue with the original four members is about as perfect as rock and roll ever got and it''s really hard to review . Yet, here I am trying to review their fourth album, Willy And The Poor Boys. Another stone cold classic from the band. Willie and the Poor Boys was Creedence Clearwater Revival third and final album of 1969. The album was originally released through Fantasy Records in November of 69 and was produced by the band''s singer and song writer John Fogerty. The album is ten tracks in total and is a good thirty five minutes in length. As a record, Willie and the Poor Boys is one of the band''s best and probably one of their more recognisable. The track list features many classics including the opener, Down on the Corner, Effigy and a fantastic cover of Cotton Fields. It''s mostly known for one of the band''s most popular songs, Fortunate Son. A song that has been featured in every rock compilation over the last fifty years. Much like the albums that came before it, the album has a lovely raw tone to it. The guitars are distorted and the drums pack a punch, but it all sounds very natural and it really compliments the kind of simple music that the band play. John Fogerty''s vocals are extremely powerful and ooze emotion, even on their cover versions. You''d think the group wrote Cotton Fields with the way they perform it. Absolutely fantastic in every way. This (and the others) are most definitely worth picking up. They''re mandatory purchases for fans of old school rock music. You can easily buy it on the basis that it contains Fortunate Son, a fantastic song in its own right. The rest of the songs are just as good and there''s no filler here at all. If you haven''t got it, it''s time to fix that.
