On Hot Rod Heart Brad Paisley trade fours the flamboyant Paisley and the thundering power of Fogerty make this worth the price of the cd alone There are no phony duets on this CD a very five star performance all the way around.
In his book. This is seriously good stuff. In his book, Fogerty talks about how his wife came up with the idea to do this album. The great thing is that he refused to do a typical duet album i. Instead, Fogerty asked each performer or band to pick the song they wanted, then to think of how they would like it arranged.
Then he met with the artists and recorded the tracks with them. Using this approach, the results are outstanding. Fortunate Son is totally the Foos, but it is also totally Fogerty. Pretty much every track on this album brings something new to the table, yet also solidifies Fogerty as one of the truly great rock songwriters of his generation. And, his music is still relevant today, for not only country artists but for rockers.
Fogerty got hosed by Fantasy records and by his bandmates, isolated himself for a while, so it is really great to have him back these last few years.
The man has talent and soul. If you are a CCR or Fogerty fan, this is a "must have". And if you're not, you might become a Fogerty fan if you venture into buying this album. Overall, I have to say this collaborative effort comes across very well. In fact, much better than most similar type collaborations which have become very popular over the past 10 years. This one actually seems to have been well thought out rather than a quick hodgepodge of songs hastily put together for consumption.
To review this record I'm going to do something I don't normally do. With this being a compilation of various artist collaborations with Fogerty of Fogerty songs it makes sense to comment on each track individually. Fortunate Son. A great way to start the record with a blistering take on this classic performed with the Foo Fighters.
What can I say? Still a great song and this version certainly does it justice. Almost Saturday Night. One of Fogerty's great overlooked post-CCR songs. Dave Edmunds did a great version of this song many years ago. This version is decent. How well you like it might depend on how you feel about collaborator Keith Urban. Performed with John's two sons Shane and Tyler. Its a substantial reworking of the song, more up tempo kind of honkey tonk with some nice swamp guitar.
Nicely done though it loses some of its original poignancy. Mystic Highway. One of the new songs. Excellent song. Its got all the elements of Fogerty's best work while not sounding like anything he's done before.
Wrote A Song For Everyone. One of the surprise standouts. This is a collaboration with Miranda Lambert on vocals and Tom Morello on guitar. This song was made for her. Morello's guitar adds an unexpected though not out of place edge to the song.
Bad Moon Rising. This is a pleasant enough rendition featuring the Zac Brown Band. Stays pretty true to the original. I like Zac Brown, but truthfully there isn't anything in this version that really stand outs. I don't think this is a radical departure from the original, but MMJ has a unique sound that really does wonders for the song.
