2018 marks the 21st anniversary of John Fogerty’s Grammy award for his album Blue Moon Swamp. To celebrate, it’s getting a deluxe reissue along with four of the Credence Clearwater Revival frontman’s other solo albums.

1997’s Blue Moon Swamp will be reissued on April 27 along with Premonition (a great live album including many CCR tracks from 1988) and Centerfield (1985). Eye Of The Zombie (1986) and Deja Vu (All Over Again) (2004) will follow as expanded reissues on May 25.

All albums will be released in 180g vinyl, CD and digital editions. Fogerty is currently putting the finishing touches to a new album slated for release later in 2018.

John Fogerty

Fogerty recently went public to make clear that a just-released movie, Proud Mary, has nothing to do with him or his legendary Creedence-era song. He released a statement that says it irks him when people seek to capitalize on the popularity of his music. Fogerty doesn’t own the rights to the song anymore, but he says no one involved in the movie even asked him about using the song or what the song means.

He now says he wrote it about a mythical time about “leaving painful, stressful things behind for a more tranquil and meaningful life.” Contrastingly, the film stars Taraji P. Henson as a hit-woman in Boston.

Forgerty pointed to the fact that the movie’s poster changes his lyrics to read, “Killing for the Man every night and day.” Fogerty’s “Proud Mary” has the lyric: “Workin' for the man every night and day.”
