Cosmo’s Factory Live! [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Beacon Theatre, New York, November 17, 2011. Broadcast on satellite radio. Ex- soundboard stereo.

Earlier, we shared an audience recording of the Cosmo’s Factory live at Atlantic City. Here is the radio broadcast from Beacon Theatre in New York City.

Some comments on this show posted at

Amazing show. My first time in New York (visiting from the UK). If I didn’t know how long he’d been making music, or how old Cosmo’s Factory is, I’d have sworn John Fogerty was half his age, his voice is amazing and along with the rest of the band he put on an amazing show. - darrenb

Hey is there anybody listening? This guy is still rocking strong! No let down the whole night. The guitar work was superb. I hope he comes back soon. - orange13

The mostly-Baby Boomer audience was rocking, rolling, singing along and groovin’ with John Fogerty. It was absolutely fun-tastic. John has been absent from us with the legal wrangling and I’m sooo glad he’s back. His music lives on and still has the same impact… - DonnaDo

Really enjoyed this show! Fogerty was energetic, sounded great, and had a terrific group of musicians supporting him. The crowd was very appreciative; standing, dancing, and singing along for nearly the entire show. John/CCR is an American musical treasure. It’s too bad that the music radio format was 2 minutes and 53 seconds at their pinnacle, as any fan wants those songs to go on for a few more bars. Thanks John. I had a smile on my face the whole night. - Anonymous

‘Nuff said… On with the show.

  3. NOT exc. sondboard. try again. a good audience tape. that’s all. This would never be broadcast over any FM signal. Insuffcient.

    By Timmy on Dec 14, 2011

  4. Yo, Timmy, no one held a gun to your head - or charged you any $$ for this recording - so chill. It is quite sufficient - very good, in fact - and what a great performance! Let’s show some gratitude to the Big O.

  5. This sounds much better than the previous “Cosmo’s” post. As soon as I get part 2 my Christmas shopping will be complete. Please BigO, don’t post anything good until after Dec. 25th.

  6. Thank you Big O.

    Maybe not excellent, but highly acceptable sound for as least having a chance to listen to.

    Be appreciate as I do recall the era of FM Radio and having the tape machine set up…

  7. Ha ha ha! dear Timmy is this a good audience tape?
    C’mon, it’s a bit flat, but can’t say this is an audience tape!
    Please people that don’t understand about music leave Big O alone, this is a fantastic concert of one of the few living legends that are still around, alive’n'kickin’!
    Thanks Big O, from a shy and humble Alex!

  10. Thanks a million, Big O!

    By ocripes on Dec 15, 2011

  11. Thanks Big O, always the extra mile, much appreciated. Just to compare, note that Suzie Q and the sax notes are on both the other recordings for Beacon Street Green River (18th) and Altantic City (20th), which are not on this recording for the 17th. Also, the other Cosmo’s Factory recording on the 20th is the only one of the three that has “Rock and Roll Girls” (track 213). Which is to say, if you only keep this version (17th) of Cosmo’s Factory, you might want to include the one track of Rock and Roll Girls from the 20th. Just sayin’.

  12. hey bigo, just to be a completest, i got all three shows. they are enjoyable shows. i did notice this show doesn’t have the sax solo like the other two.

    post some zappa. it’s been a year come jan, since you posted cowtown ballroom, kc, mo 12.2.72. it’s a good one and my favorite. i got every zappa you offered starting with the first which was weasel music acetate 1969 in sept 2008. it’s a good one.

    jethro tull, alice cooper, pink floyd and blue oyster cult are always welcome. i have 18 boc shows, but i’m always looking for ones i don’t have. i don’t have the old waldorf, sf, ca 9.8.80. i think, that date is correct. that’s the show where they played under their original show which was soft white underbelly. i’ve seen it out there, but it’s big.

  13. Thanks guys for bring us Mr Fogerty! :)

    By tony on Dec 16, 2011

  14. What’s fun about listening to Fogerty do the Creedence songs is finding out I was singing the wrong words for 45 years.

    By Sking on Dec 18, 2011

  15. Sking, you’ve got a song there! “The wrong words, the wrong words. I always end up saying the wrong words to my girl….even when I’m right!!!” ha ha.

    By 3yrsnojob on Dec 18, 2011

  16. I’m just so fucking glad that I can still enjoy John Fogerty when I’m 53 years old. Thank you Big O, and thank you John.
