Tom Fogerty Top 82

After quitting CCR in early 1971, Tom Fogerty began his solo career. He recorded eight albums but failed to achieve major commercial success. He died in 1990.

In late 1999, members of the Worldwide CCR Fan Club ranked the Tom Fogerty songs of his solo era and here's the scoreboard with liner notes and comments by voters.

1. Joyful Resurrection (Zephyr National)

  • According to the survey among the fan club members, the best Tom Fogerty song´is "Joyful Resurrection". The victory was undisputable; none of his other songs could even challenge this CCR sounding highlight on the "Zephyr National" album.
  • Upbeat, happy, catchy song that could easily pass as a CCR song.
  • Reportedly, lead guitar on this song was played by Stu Cook.

    2. Forty Years (Excalibur)

  • One of the few surprises on the scoreboard.
  • "Life is shit -- and then you die, this is one of those songs."

    3. Goodbye Media Man (non-albumed single)

  • With organ etc., the song reminds much the general sound spectre of the "Pendulum" album. It would be interesting to know whether TF wanted this one for the "Pendulum" album of CCR
  • The song was released only as a single in spring 1971.

    4. Goin' Back To Okeefenokee (Zephyr National)

  • A driving shuffle closing the "Zephyr National" album.
  • "The dueling between keyboards & guitar is great."

    5. Mystic Isle Avalon (Zephyr National)

  • "Mystic Isle Avalon" might be regarded a one of the few Creedence sounding songs in the catalogue of TF.
  • Reportedly, it's the one and only lead guitar part of JF on the album.

    6. It's Been A Good Day (Zephyr National)

  • Relaxed opening track of the "Zephyr National" album.

    7. Give Me Another Trojan Song (Myopia)

  • A compelling pseudo-reggae opening the "Myopia" album.
  • Arguably, the song nicely borrows some elements of Ricky Nelson's "Hello Mary Lou".

    8. Champagne Love (Deal It Out)

  • Catchy opening song composed by Doug Clifford.
