creedence 1969 b w 385x280 How Californias Creedence Clearwater Revival Developed Their Southern Sound

Tonight’s Top 6 @ 6 was sent in by listener Les Woody who not only picked the theme, he picked the songs.  The theme is “songs with cowbells” and CCR is included in the half dozen hits youll hear.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Creedence Clearwater Revival[/lastfm] had everybody fooled.  Growing up in Oklahoma all my friends and I thought Creedence had to be from the deep south like LouisianaMississippi, or Tennessee.  Information about groups wasn’t as readily available in those pre-internet and pre-cable tv days.  It wasn’t until much later we learned they were actually from the Berkeley, California area!  How was it possible for them to sound so southern growing up in Northern California?
