Not with those that knew about music. They had a large following in the UK at the time, the majority of those seeing them as more than a singles band

For those approaching them long after the event, I think they are underappreciated even by many who know about music. I was guilty myself until a year or so ago.

Too true!! They just sounded so earthy. And the album covers looked great too. Simple but atmospheric.

Nobody has mentioned it but I remember Travellin' Band as a single. Too much energy there for Tony Blackburn (and Arnold). :)

That'll do me, too. And I'll second soul-a-skope's thought that they can become dull quite quickly. To hear them suddenly blast out of a pub jukebox can be a very thrilling experience, however.

Album: All of them
Track: All of them

No really, the quality is amazingly high. They jammed better than the Dead, wrote songs the equal of Lieber and Stoller and in Fogerty had a great - and I do mean great - singer (and he's still got it), and top notch guitarist. Hats off to a man who kept his eye on the ball.
