John Fogerty - Long Dark Night

John shouts out a lotta people in this song, with real spirit and love for the common folks who enjoy waking up on Monday to rock and roll with a message. I really love the way he’s able to use the power of dance to allow the thoughts and reflections of the past to renew the future. For example, “George is in the jungle” recalls Run Through The Jungle. Elsewhere we hear that George is one of the Fortunate Sons that Fogerty spoke about some many years ago. Lots of shoutouts on this CD – the entire CD is a classic. Specific shoutouts for It Ain't Right and I Can't Take It No More which have energized me to enjoy this entire week! John Fogerty
