    In November 1969, Creedence Clearwater Revival released their fourth album in less than a year and a-half. Rather amazingly, it was their third album release of 1969. Up to this point, they already enjoyed five top forty singles, and they were recognized as perhaps the single most successful rock and roll band of their era.

    “Willy and the Poor Boys” cemented that reputation with another stellar collection of straightforward, roots-based songs that shook off the psychedelic stereotype that defined the era. At the same time, songwriter/singer/guitarist John Fogerty also felt confident enough to allow his songs to take on a political stance, resulting in the band’s most powerful collections of songs to date. As the decade ended, Fogerty and Co. seemed poised to take over the world.
