Default Favorite Not-so-well-known Creedence song?

By that I mean, what's your favorite CCR song they never play on the radio, ones that only the die-hard fans know?

I got a lot of 'em, Porterville might be my fav, though. (even though it was a hit when it was first released.)

Ramble Tamble, also, is just unbelieveably good. Feelin' Blue is another one of my favs.

Smile Crazy Otto

Excellent question!
One of my favs is the new Bayou Country bonus track 'Crazy Otto', an awesome 8-and a half minute bluesy swamp-rock instrumental live at the Fillmore in 1969!
by the way, here in Holland 'Ramble Tamble' was broadcasted a few days ago on a famous classic rock radio station... sounds good eh?

Default Rarely heard favorites

"It's Just a Thought" is a beautiful song that I've NEVER heard on the radio. I also really like "Effigy," though I know that not everyone agrees with that choice. Mysterious, yet catchy.

Talking

For me it's "Pagan Baby", the solo is just wonderful and the tempo changes is very well done...
But I don't really know if it's a "not so well known creedence song"...

"Walking on the water" is one of my favourite "not so well known" songs , other is "Wrote a song for everyone"

Cheers!

This post is quite ominous to reply to. Creedence had so many great songs, most of which were acknowledged on the Chronicle albums, however, there are a few that are just as wonderful that didn't make it on the two volume package.

I feel that after listening to the pre-1970s Creedence albums, one of the ones I treasure comes off Willy and the Poor Boys. The last song on the album, "Effigy," is a haunting mixture of life and death in my opinion. The subject matter is verging on gruesome, however, the music is undenyably alive! Tracks such as "Sinister Purpose," "Cross-Tie Walker," and "Ramble Tamble" are wonderful as well.

I was rather surprised that fairly popular songs such as "Bootleg" and "Keep on Chooglin'" aren't featured on the greatest hits Chronicle albums! They even made a music video of "Bootleg" and closed nearly every one of their shows with "Keep on Chooglin'."

As for the period where Creedence began falling apart, I really love tunes such as "(Wish I Could) Hideaway" and "It's Just a Thought."

As for non-Fogerty songs, I can't help but think that "What Are You Gonna Do" is so catchy. Part of me really loves it and the other part of me doesn't want to love it because it's not Fogerty's voice. I'm leaning further in the direction of loving it.

There's also one track I love from the Golliwogs stage of Creedence. The second version of "You Can't Be True" where John sings is a good example of John's voice developed still further once he became the voice of Creedence.

All in all, everything they do is wonderful. I do wish they were still together, making music for this generation to appreciate and enjoy. Oh well, you know what they say - all good things must come to an end.

I know, right? Perhaps I can see why those songs aren't on Chronicles 1 as those are for the biggest hits. Really, as much as I'd love to have seen Born on the Bayou, Midnight Special and Keep On Chooglin' on Chronicles 1, that album is pretty much flawless overall.

I do have a slight problem with Chronicles 2 though because they did leave off so many good lesser known songs like Bootleg, Feelin' Blue, Ramble Tamble, Effigy, Cross Tie Walker and (especially) their concert closer Keep on Chooglin'. Yet the album includes Good Golly Miss Molly, My Baby Left Me, Lookin' for a Reason and Hello Mary Lou. Don't get me wrong, those are fine songs (almost all Creedence songs are at least good), but it seems to me those songs aren't as unmistakably-Creedence as the songs they left off...meaning they don't quite have the same swampy vibe.

I realize now, the best way to listen to Creedence is through the albums. Not only so I can listen to all the songs, but in the original order. Instead of listening to the well known classics first, then the lesser known after. I find it best when they are all mixed together.

Having said that, you can't go wrong bringing Chronicles on a long car trip!

I couldn't agree with you more. I feel that some of the songs on the second installment are a bit weeker than "Ramble Tamble" or "Effigy" or especially "Keep on Chooglin'." I feel as though it would have been a wiser choice to select songs that more wholly and undenyably embody the swamp rock sound of Creedence.

It's so awesome to be able to express how I feel about them with people who are also just as into them as I am. haha thanks for the response.

Yeah, I love Keep on Chooglin'! It almost puts me in an awesome 7 minute trance when I play it!
