Music Review: Credence Clearwater Revival: Willy and the Poor Boys

This is the fourth of the Credence Clearwater albums, and the third in 1969.  It was remastered with three bonus tracks (all replays of songs on the original) in 2006.  This CD starts off with a bang and doesn't stop.  The title song is "Down on the Corner" which talks about Willy and the Poor Boys singing down on the corner.  They also covered "Cotton Fields" and also "Fortunate Son" highlights the second song.  This song later had great political meaning and became an antiwar song.  However one of my person favorites in "Poorboy Shuffle" an instrumental piece.  "It Came Out of the Sky" and "The Midnight Special" are also in this mix.  Very entertaining.
