Creedence Clearwater Revival: John Fogerty (vocals, guitar); Stu Cook (vocals, bass); Doug Clifford (vocals, drums).After knocking out an astonishing amount of work in just three years, CCR released their final album MARDI GRAS in 1971. In retrospect, it was probably time for them to disband. Interpersonal tensions had heightened, and all three members were pulling in different directions. These problems had taken their artistic toll on John Fogerty, whose songs no longer bore quite the same carefree, easy-as-falling-off-a-log feel as they had before. Certainly such tunes as Tearin' Up The Country, What Are You Gonna Do and the album's sole hit Sweet Hitch-Hiker continue in the same stylistic vein as earlier albums, mining an idiosyncratic vein of American roots rock, but something was different. Reading between the lines of these infectious, well-crafted tunes, one could sense the psychic strain that would soon shatter the band. Let's be thankful that CCR had a swan song as memorable and consistently tuneful as MARDI GRAS.
