The Blue Ridge Rangers


The Blue Ridge Rangers were hardly ever a band. Actually, it was hardly ever several person: Creedence Clearwater Revival core, John Fogerty. With acrimony on the break up of Creedence (or even more to the idea, the jettisoning of tempo players Stu Make and Doug Clifford) still clean, Fogerty released what’s ostensibly his initial single album. It had been notable to be an all-covers nation/gospel record as well as for Fogerty’s Todd Rundgren-like making, playing of all instruments, overdubbing all of the vocals — everything but offering it door-to-door. The idea of submerging his identification (Fogerty’s face is normally nowhere over the coat cover) was to place some range between himself as well as the Creedence legacy he used as an albatross, spend homage towards the American vernacular music he liked, and, rather inconspicuously (aside from that distinctive tone of voice), announce himself like a solo performer. Strangely enough, life like a single designer (compounded by extended litigation against previous Fantasy Records seat Saul Zaentz) didn’t appear to trust Fogerty, and his incredibly limited production, without helping him with regards to sales, do, ironically, concrete his status as an American rock and roll icon.
