Creedence Clearwater Revival. Has This Song Ever Been On The Radio? Cotton.

I used to love this song Cottonfields. I had the album but haven't heard it in YEARS. Come to think of it, I don't ever recall ever hearing it on the radio. It's from CCR. But I'm not lying when I tell you that I played it all the time.

And check out the "video". It's just a picture of a cotton field.

Is anyone else a Creedence or John Fogerty fan ? What about cotton fans? Anyone?

What album is that from? I've never heard it before. Great find!

Who Stopped the Rain is an unbelievable good song. I have to stop in my tracks whenever it comes on the radio.

I have picked cotton in fields just like that in Texas. Stopped my car, got out, and picked a few cotton buds or blooms, or whatever they are called, to send to my NYC dress designer friend so she could see and feel the real deal.

unbelievably good song, I meant to say.

no idea if I spelled that correctly,either.

White Trash BBQ - it was called Creedence Country

PHD - Your designer friend make a tiny shirt out of the cotton?

Dr Zibbs said...

WhiteTrashBBQ said...

I used to love Creedence.

CCR and Steppenwolf are a couple of my faves.

My momma grew up on a cotton farm. I worked at a cotton farm one season.

It's called a cotton boll, PIY.

Frank Irwin - Did YOU ever make a tweensy shirt out of a few cotton balls?

Frank Irwin said...

Dr. Z, I can't say that I did.

Secretia said...

Haven't heard that one in years, but I love "Rock n Roll Girls" by John Fogarty

Dr Zibbs said...

Frank Irwin - REALLY think hard. I I think you may have.

Once you made the tiny shirt did you carry it with you for months, hoping that you'd run into a little man that you would give it to? And then you would ask the little man for a wish but the little man would say,

"I'm sorry Frank Irwin. I have no magical powers. I'm simply a little man"

Is that what happened? Think hard now.

Frank Irwin said...

aha. And I thought that was merely a dream.

So, Dr. Z, you were that little man?

Dr Zibbs said...

Frank Irwin - No. My magical form is a centaur.

My mum used to sing this song with her country band years ago but I'd only heard the Johnny Cash and Buck Owen versions.

At her wake this year, the band played CCR's 'Green River'. Every female between the ages of 3 and 95 got up on the dancefloor and gyrated like there was no tomorrow.

Dr Zibbs said...

Artful K - that's great. That's what I'd like to see happen at my funeral.

Also, I just went to Youtube to hear the Johnny Cash version. I've never heard his recording. Nice.

CCR always makes me think of:

"hey man, is that freedom rock?"
"yeah, man."
"well turn it up!"

p.s. It would be nice if you would post pictures or at least a description of the Zibbs study, where all of these posts are born. I imagine a fireplace and billiards table.

Freedom Rock. Haven't thought of that in ages.
