From the Vault: John Fogerty’s “Blueboy”


Editor’s Note: The Daily Music Break periodically re-posts music from earlier in the site’s run. This post initially appeared on April 28, 2012.

The song above is from the Blue Moon Swamp, which was released in 1997.

Fogerty helped popularize The Midnight Special by Leadbelly. Here is his take on Jambalaya (On the Bayou). The shaky camera settles down nicely. He performed Green River and Fortunate Son on The David Letterman Show and, at the 1993 Rock and Roll Inductions, did Who’ll Stop the Rain with Robbie Robertson and Bruce Springsteen.

On April 20, he appeared with the The Black Keys and sang The Weight in honor of Levon Helm. Here is a rehearsal of that performance from Fogerty’s site. Here is a discography from VH1.
