TJR says

Second album from the Californian quartet, played in the popular Southern Rock style. They lined up: John Fogerty (lead guitar, lead vocals, harmonica, keyboards, percussion), Tom Fogerty (backing vocals, rhythm guitar), Stu Cook (bass guitar) and Doug Clifford (drums). The LP is home to their million-selling paddle-steamer tribute “Proud Mary”, but all I can see is yer Granny at the line dancing, and it's very off-putting. Best for me is “Graveyard Train”, a pucker blues-rock jam which never outstays it welcome, despite the same 4-notes descending on loop for 8 minutes.
