A bona fide rock classic, Bayou Country (released in January 1969) broke CCR wide open nationally and worldwide, containing the group's first big hits, "Proud Mary" and "Born On The Bayou".

These two tracks, along with "Bootleg," "Graveyard Train" and "Keep On Chooglin'," were pure CCR- gritty vocals, tight leads and infectious rhythm.  John Fogerty's lyrics evoke a Mississippi and bayou folk legend, a world of voodo fortune tellers, hoodoos and hound dogs and, together with his raspy-voiced delivery, prompted a wide speculation that the El Cerrito, California band was of southern origin.

Before the year was out, 35 artists had cut cover versions of "Proud Mary" while the Bayou Country album itself seemed unkillable, remaining on the Billboard charts for 87 weeks and becoming CCR's first platinum LP.

Originally released in 1969.
