Atlantic City 2011 [no label, 2CD]

John Fogerty “Cosmo’s Factory Live”, Caesars Circus Maximus Theatre, Atlantic City, NJ; November 20, 2011. Very good audience recording.

In November 2011, John Fogerty embarked on his Looking Out My Back Door “mini-tour” where the one-time Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman performed the group’s albums in their entirety. On November 17, Fogerty performed at New York City’s Beacon Theatre and played Cosmo’s Factory and, on the 18, he played Green River. On Nov 20, Fogerty performed at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater, Atlantic City, NJ and revisited Cosmo’s Factory.

John Fogerty is a music icon, short and simple. His music is the proverbial soundtrack of a generation and embodies all the elements of great hooks, infectious beats, political awareness and intense vocals, ties them all into a masters brew that became it’s own genre… Swamp music! John started the show by playing his classic Cosmo’s Factory album in its entirety (a real treat for me, who wore out three vinyl albums by playing them to death “back in the day”). He then followed up with a rousing, high energy mix of CCR and solo songs with the whole show lasting a little over two hours. Highlights for me were a kick-ass version of Run Through The Jungle with John absolutely tearing it up on the harmonica and his show opening, Ramble Tamble, a song that more than once almost caused me to get speeding tickets by trying to have my car keep up with the song’s increasing tempo.

Apart from the music, it’s great to find Fogerty in fine chatty form - and doesn’t he sound like a latter-day John Denver?

Thanks to edtyre for taping the show and for sharing the tracks on Dime. Thanks also to Jacktomthumb for the artwork.

  3. Sounds like J Fogerty’s response to Creedence Clearwater Revisited’s live 2CD set “Bosnia”. Wonder if the “Green River” set from Nov 18th will become available. Very good box set for CCR fans. Was dancing to this stuff in Junior High (middle school).

  4. 3YNJ, check qualitybootz and/or T.U.B.E. for the 17th and 18th dates. Great quality there, too. I was hoping to find the 20th date as it has been reported to be the better performance (no mention of recording quality, tho). So very glad that Big O steps up to the plate again! Thanks for this one!

  8. Thank you for this! We saw John a couple years ago here at The Tower Theatre in Philly and he was amazing, very charming and a guy who really knows how to ‘work the crowd’. I wasn’t able to get down to AC for this show and have been looking out for it - great sound quality.

  9. Thanks for making these tracks available!
    Glad Fogerty’s still alive and kicking.
    But Kenny Aronoff is truly a shame to humanity.
    Doug Clifford Rules!!!

  10. Having grown up with John Fogerty’s songs, I have felt an enormous debt of gratitude to him, his brother Tom, Doug Clifford and Stu Cook for their truly inspiring music (as I feel towards so many others - Janis, Jimi, Otis, Syd, to name only a few.) But, with his latest legal action against his former bandmates, I am finally parting company with Mr. Fogerty. As great as his songwriting undoubtedly is, and as much as I enjoy listening to his music, I cannot abide his unending war with men he once called friends and creative partners. While I don’t pass a moral judgment on Fogerty, neither will continue to participate in his career as a fan because, to do so, seems like a betrayal of something once great.

  12. Thanks so much BigO for this repost. I lost a hard drive a few years back and this was on it.Buddy of mine raved about a show at the Beacon Theater. Wish I was there to join him after listening to this one.

    PS: Any chance for a repost of the Clapton jazz rehearsals at A.I.R. Studios? Heard it is a really interesting turn for God.
