Jambalaya 45 By The Blue Ridge Rangers

February 6, 2012

John Fogerty has reached The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with Creedence Clearwater and has also had a long and successful solo career. At the beginning of his solo career he recorded as the Blue Ridge Rangers, which had him playing all the instruments.

He released a cover of the classic Hank Williams songs, “Jambalaya,” December 2, 1972, and it reached number 16 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.

“Jambalaya” may have been a county song but Fogerty gave it a rocking rendition. It remains one of his best solo effots.
