Creedence Clearwater Revival's best-of albums are enough, John Fogerty may have thought, and then made the decision for the new recordings of twelve hits of the past. So that the rehearsal doesn't get too monotonous, he has brought a number of colleagues into the studio to support him. "Born On The Bayou" with Kid Rock is especially successful, followed by "Who'll Stop The Rain" with Bob Seger, "Someday Never Comes" with Daws and "Wrote A Song For Everyone" with Miranda Lambert feat. Tom Lambert. The Foo Fighters made their mark on Fortunate Son. "Lodi" (Fogerty with his sons Shane and Tyler) "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" with Alan Jackson and "Bad Moon Rising" with the Zac Brown Band aren't nearly as good as their original versions. The soul edition of "Proud Mary" (Jennifer Hudson and Allen Toussaint), for example by Ike and Tina Turner, has also been better heard. The two new songs "Mystic Highway" (country anthem) and "Train Of Fools" (Swamp Rock), which Fogerty brought to his debut with Sony Music and sings himself, are refreshing.
