This is one of my absolute favorite CCR albums and albums in general. This album shows the complexity of the boy's playing with various styles from rockabilly to hard rock.

1 Ramble Tamble (SIX stars)--My favorite CCR song and one of my favorite songs all together. The best part is the break, when Tom combines his machine-gun like guitar with Stu's thumping bass and John's psychedellic and beautifully distorted drags. By far the best song in the album in my book.

2 Before You Accuse Me (Five stars)--A real nice bluesy beat combined with some great gutars.

3 Travelin' Band (Five stars)--Great fast paced song which gives it a rockabilly affect which harks back to some of the American greats.

4 Ooby Dooby (Five stars)--Another rockabilly tribute done well by the boys.

5 Lookin' Out My Back Door (Five Stars)--Fun and bouncy song, combines a really great muted guiar with some rocking bass lines.

6 Run Through The Jungle (Five Stars)--A Vietnam war protest standard. The protest of this song is apparent and very true to many.

7 Up Around The Bend (Five Stars)--A CCR classic. John's high pitched guitar riff and a nice "thump-thump" bass line from Stu creates one great song and an instant classic.

8 My Baby Left Me (SIX stars)--One of the best tracks on the album. Has a wicked bass line and some great distorted guitars as well.

9 Who'll Stop The Rain (Five Stars)--A real nice tribute to the unstability to the times.

10 I Heard It Through The Grapevine (Four Stars)--Great song with some awesome music, but seems too long.

11 Long As I Can See The Light (Five Stars)--A great testiment to the CCR style. Has a real interesting sax and organ part, creating an almost new genre that is the CCR's own.

All together a wopping Five Stars for this great album. I suggest it to any CCR fan or a late 60's early 70's music buff too.
