    Thanks for mentioning CCR because they are too easily overlooked. It's kind of amazing that Creedence was seen as a commercial, Top 40 single kind of band. The best CCR songs match up with what anyone else did and their album filler was much better than Dead album filler. More importantly, it was possible to slip Fortunate Son in amongst the Pistols and Clash when I went to college and not have somebody throw a bottle at the stereo. I guess CCR never transported anyone into the great wide forever, but the songs are real and have been enjoyed by many more people than ever donned tie-die and traded Dead show tapes.

    Funny you should say that... I co-worker of mine, way back when, touted himself as despising anything that was commercial. However, he was find of CCR and gave me a tape of Cosmos Factory. They have some sort of universal appeal, not unlike the Beatles. Here's an oddity... why does it seem as though while today's youth laugh at what was popular when I was a teen, and yet like the Monkees.

    You know, I like a lot of bands. I dislike a lot of bands. But I find that no matter what, I can always tune in to some Jethro Tull and have a jam.

    Love the musical styles, the development over time, the poetic aspect, the lyrics, all of it. Plus I don't need to feel bad about downloading their MP3s because I've got every single song on CD/vinyl/casset somewhere anyway. >_>b

    Let's see here start with some Zepplin and add a touch of Van Morrison. Mix in some AC/DC and Van Halen with just a pinch of Van Hagar (can't take too much Sammy). Add a bunch of Eagles and Guess Who.
    Bake at 350 and serve warm....

    Sprinkle with Rush, ELO and Steely Dan if desired !

    AC/DC sprinkled with ELO must be like a bowl of Froot Loops and tequila. I don't like them separately and combining them seems even worse. But Van Morrison is a great choice and, as I approach 45, I wonder more & more how Astral Weeks came out of someone so young.

    Most people are familiar with "Train In Vain", "Should I stay Or Should I Go", and "Rock The Casbah". Today I heard a remake of "I Fought The Law". That was a first for me.
