The Blue Ridge Rangers: Rides Again

( 4 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
John Fogerty released his first solo CD, an album of covers on which he played all the instruments, under the name the "Blue Ridge Rangers," and he revives that concept on 2009's The Blue Ridge Rangers Ride Again. Where the first smacked of the righteous zeal of a young purist, Ride Again is a lot looser in its attack, something reflected in how it splits the difference between country and rockabilly classics and reflective numbers from '70s songwriters. These unexpected covers of John Prine, Delaney & Bonnie, and John Denver offer a peek at a sweeter, gentler Fogerty, a Fogerty who can also be heard on how he lays back instead of pushing ahead on Buck ...

He can still raise an unholy ruckus, wailing his way through Gene Simmons' rockabilly classic "Haunted House" and joyously duetting with Bruce Springsteen on the Everlys' "When Will I Be Loved," but Ride Again isn't a raucous rock & roll album, it's a relaxed good time, a little bit of cheerful nostalgia that's pretty charming.

    You just gotta Love It!

    Sunshine on a rainy day. I heard part of an interview last fall on NPR.
    I always appreciated John Fogerty's originality so I thought I'd see what
    he was up to now. Love it! Love It! Thank You, John
    It's playing now so I got to get up and move.

    Music to Do Housework By

    This is a fun, rhythmical album with songs familiar to a person of my generation. It rocks. I didn't expect the songs to sound like they were coming from a 25-year-old entertainer and in that respect was not disappointed. The music is well done. Unfortunately, the CD is only a little over 30 minutes in length. I could listen to this all day.

    Fogerty back to roots! You need more to buy?

    Not CCR, not the latest tunes. Pure orginality!
