Matt is just too good at what he does (an actual professional who slums it with me haha). Aside from singing and mixing this--he did all the instruments. Mixing was a bear, but this is listenable I think. I'm relearning the art of production (upgraded myself past my comfort zone with Sonar X1 lol). Cheers and don't ask me to sing this live; my head would explode. smiley When he sent it to me, I was like thanks--right on the upper edge of my range plus distortion. He asked if I wanted to drop it down a key or two and I said, "Nah...leave it." (Led Zep reference) Hence this song will never be sung by me live in this key two nights in a row. Great tune by John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Yeah baby! This is a killer cover! Matt is one of those super humans that can make anything 'look' or 'sound' good. Superb vox, especially on the bv's & harmonies.

My god, what an epic battle between guitar and vocals. Irresistible force meets immovable object, and so forth. What a kick-***, speaker-rattling tune. I've always loved the attitude of this song - there's a reason that so many punk bands covered a CCR tune. You guys did it justice.

damn! smiley

i was a little scared with the "high, high, high" bit but this is great. I think you kept enough of the swamp sound of CCR but also changed it enough for a great balance. Very well done. GREAT recording! i too may have injured myself listening to this with headphones and cranked up...

Little_Hooligan Listener This was worth blowing a few vocals chords over wasn't it? You guys made it your own and I mean that in a most positive way..I blasted this so loud my headsets jumped off my head and I had to go running after them as they headed out the door.. Joyful noise!

smiley and the dish ran away with the spoon! I think it would be a hilarious joke on me haha if this cover somehow got "noticed" and I was expected to sing it in public a few nights in a row. I'd have to pull a Milly Vanilly to avoid a hemorrhage by the third show lol. Hats off and a deep bow to Fogerty. This is one of those tunes you save for "last song people!". (REO reference heheh) and you hope everyone including self is good and sloshes by then.

The is just great. An actual cover version that i actually know well. I must admit that i know this song from Rock Band on the xbox but I love it and what youve done here is outstanding. It mixes up the greatness of the original with what you do great. I love it. Encore ! Has a great live feel to it.
