John Fogerty has announced he and his kids will release a full 12-track album of their quarantine recordings, titled Fogerty's Factory on CD and digital platforms on November 20th — with an LP version to follow in January. Back on May 28th — John Fogerty's 75th birthday — he released an EP of songs featuring him performing some of his classic tunes with three of his kids, also called Fogerty’s Factory. Rounding out the group is Fogerty's sons and bandmates, Shane on guitar, and Tyler on bass, along with daughter, Chelsea on brushes and snare.
For the recent EP and new set, the Fogerty's recreated Creedence Clearwater Revival's legendary 1970 album, Cosmos Factory. Fogerty enlisted his kids to replace his former bandmates in the exact same spot they sat 50 years ago. Fogerty's brother Bob — who shot the original photo — returned to do the honors.
The new collection features covers of Bill Withers' “Lean On Me,” Steve Goodman's “City Of New Orleans,” and 10 of Fogerty's solo and Creedence classics.
The tracklist to Fogerty’s Factory is: “Centerfield,” “Have You Ever Seen The Rain,” “Lean On Me,” “Hot Rod Heart,” “Blue Moon Nights,” “Tombstone Shadow,” “City Of New Orleans,' “Proud Mary,” “Blueboy,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Fortunate Son,” “and “Don't You Wish It Was True.”
John Fogerty told us he swells with pride when he describes the feeling of soaring through his catalogue night after night with his sons — Shane and Tyler flanking him onstage: “Y'know, it's great having my two sons up there rockin' out with me. I mean, that's an amazing feeling that I get to have every time I'm playing. It's hard to really express it, but anybody that's a dad knows exactly (laughs) what I'm talkin' about. I'm not sure I ever envisioned this happening and I'm just so blessed that it did.”
