Creedence Clearwater Revival - Mardi Gras

Released in April 1972, Mardi Gras marked Creedence Clearwater Revival's farewell as a musical entity after five enormously successful years. Yet this album, as its title suggests, is more a celebration than a swan song. With the departure of guitarist Tom Fogerty a year previously, the group worked closely as a trio, sharing writing, singing, and production duties. The results were gratifying, yielding two hit singles, 'Sweet Hitch-Hiker' and 'Someday Never Comes,' and showcasing drummer Doug 'Cosmo' Clifford (notably in 'Tearin' Up the Country') and bassist Stu Cook, who indeed cooks on 'Door to Door.' Fogerty's rendering of the Gene Pitney classic 'Hello Mary' is flawless, while his 'Looking for a Reason' presages his future interest in exploring country & western music.
