CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL PENDULUM SACD
Certainly the most appropriate name for any Creedence Clearwater Revival album - like a pendulum swinging, the band abruptly changed their style of music. The general sound, with prominent bass, keyboards, and saxophones was markedly different than any previous CCR. John Fogerty had become prolific enough that there were no cover tunes on the album - each of the others has at least one. He probably wanted to demonstrate the band's expanding horizons, but the all-important public didn't really accept it. Pendulum sold much more poorly than Cosmo's Factory, despite "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" reaching the Top 10. This album also marked the departure of co-founder Tom Fogerty, who couldn't take his brother's domination of all the group's activities anymore. This move indirectly led to the disillusion of the band.
CCR's sixth album released in 1970, although maybe a half step behind "Green River", "Willy & The Poor Bows" and "Cosmo's Factory" in it's classic status, displays a maturity and balance that can only be found from Fogerty and Company. Includes the hits "Hey Tonight" and "Have You Ever Seen the Rain."
