Albums Of The Week: Various Artists | Burn On The Bayou: A Heavy Underground Tribute To Creedence Clearwater Revival

Run through the jungle — and slog through the swamp — as a roster of more than 30 heavyweight rockers give John Forgerty & co.'s classics a hard-hitting makeover.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “The Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute album Burn On The Bayou features 32 heavy covers by bands like JPT Scare Band, War Cloud, Kind, Great Electric Quest, High Priestess, Kabbalah, Stonebirds, Thunder Horse, Void Vator, Cities of Mars, Kyle Shutt of The Sword, La Chinga and many more.

About the compilation, Ripple Music co-founder Todd Severin says: “I chose Creedence Clearwater Revival for our first compilation because I wanted to do something different. I didn’t want to do Sabbath, Lizzy or such because bands have such reverence for them that they would turn in their best take on Sabbath or Lizzy. I wanted a band with amazing songs, that the bands could make their own, and boy did they. Plus Creedence Clearwater Revival is rooted in the sludge of the swamp, an aesthetic that plays well to stoner/doom bands. And to really bring out the swamp in the songs, the whole project was mastered by Kent Stump of the legendary swamp rockers Wo Fat.”
