Creedence Clearwater Revival

Mardi Gras


180 Gram Vinyl with Download After knocking out an astonishing amount of work in just three years Creedence released their final album 'Mardi Gras' in 1971 In retrospect it was probably time for them to disband Interpersonal tensions had heightened and all three members were pulling in different directions these problems had taken their artistic toll on John Fogerty whose songs no longer bore quite the same carefree easyasfallingoffalog feel as they had before Certainly such tunes as 'Tearin' Up the Country' 'What Are You Gonna Do' and the album's sole hit 'Sweet HitchHiker' continue in the same stylistic vein as earlier albums mining an idiosyncratic vein of American roots rock but something was different Reading between the lines of these infectious wellcrafted tunes one could sense the psychic strain that would soon shatter the band Let's be thankful that Creedence had a swan song as memorable and consistently tuneful as 'Mardi Gras'
