Fifty Years On, John Fogerty Returns To “Factory”

It’s been half a century since CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL released their classic “Cosmo’s Factory” that remains fans’ favorite even today, which is why the band’s leader John Fogerty decided to call the video series that he and his kids – sons Shane and Tyler and daughter Kelsy – recorded at their home studio and gradually uploaded to the veteran’s YouTube channel “Fogerty’s Factory” and, later, to lend this title to his new album. There was a digital-only EP issued on John’s 75th birthday, May 28th, when the Fogerty family shot “Centerfield” at an empty Dodger Stadium, but now there’s a full-length album to see the light of day in physical form on November 20th (with vinyl to follow on January 15th). It doesn’t include a lot of CCR classics, yet cuts from the artist’s solo offerings and a Bill Withers cover compensate for that.

In the spirit of things, the Fogerties even recreated the “Cosmo’s Factory” cover artwork, so the allure of this album is immense.
