Creedence Clearwater Revival: Commotion

It’s Thirty Something Thursday and we head back to 1969 with one of the lesser known hits from Creedence Clearwater Revival: “Commotion.” Charting at #30, “Commotion” was one of several social commentaries that appeared on vinyl in the late sixties and early seventies, but has been largely forgotten. The song’s chart performance is mostly due to the fact it was competing with the corresponding A-side of the single: “Green River,” which charted at #2.

From their third LP, “Green River,” “Commotion” features John Fogerty on harmonica in addition to his duties as lead guitarist and lead vocalist. This is one you never hear on the oldies or AOR stations today – too bad.
