Review by: ringoswigOn 21 Jan 2007 at 05:42 CEST
Well, this is certainly a stellar album, even if it slightly inferior to Green River. There are a couple of bluesy instrumental jams ('Poorboy Shuffle' and 'Side 'o the Road'), and a couple of covers of traditional Southern tunes ('Cotton Fields' and 'Midnight Special'), which indicates the band was experiencing a bit of difficulty coming up with an entire album's worth of material. If I were picky, I would call them filler, but the instrumentals are salvaged by John Fogarty's stinging guitar tone, and both of the covers are freakishly enjoyable. Plus, this is Creedence's third album in the year 1969, and the fourth in less than a year and a half, so I guess we have to cut them a break!

The album also signals a slight but perceptible change in sound for the group. Apart from the gloomy 'Effigy,' Willy and the Poor Boys features a much brighter, happier sound than the dark, sinister Green River, and it seems to work quite well. I mean, what's not to like about the infectious, good-time hoedown party tune 'Down On The Corner,' or the joyous three chord guitar-chug of 'It Came Out Of The Sky,' one of Fogarty's most underrated compositions?

However, it's not all smiles and chuckles here. The band taps into the turbulence of Vietnam War-era America with 'Fortunate Son,' which puts a twist on John F. Kennedy's "ask not what your country can do for you" speech by boldly thumbing its nose at the American establishment (e.g. "and they ask you how much should you give/ and the answers only more, more ,more, MORE!"). In so doing, John Fogarty was speaking for the millions of young Americans who weren't "no Senator's son," and whose parents couldn't afford to buy them out of the draft. The fact that the song happens to be one of the most rockin' tunes in music history also helps its cause, and again the guitar riff/tone and John's fiery vocals make it a sure-fire classic. If ever there was a song that explained what CCR were really about, this would be it.

But there are other great moments as well. If you're in the mood for finding a great obscure CCR song then look no further than the R&B powerhouse 'Feelin Blue,' which is one of the band's catchiest and grooviest tunes, and the rockabilly 'Don't Look Now' is a standout track in its own right. In summary, Willy and the Poor Boys is an extremely enjoyable album, and by all rights should lay to rest an accusations that CCR was merely a "singles band." Ten out of ten.
