More Info:John Fogerty reclaims his rightful place among America's most iconic and revered artists with Revival: 12 all-new songs that incorporate the best elements of an artist that deeply resonates with generations of music fans and thousands of other artists he has influenced throughout the years.
''Revival'' is a 2007 studio album by American swamp rock singer-songwriter/guitarist John Fogerty, and is his first new album in three years. The album is also the third album (the first two were ''compilation'' and ''live'' albums) since rejoining Fantasy Records. It was released on October 2, 2007 (see 2007 in music).
The cover design echoes the silhouette design of Fogerty's first solo album ''The Blue Ridge Rangers''. The first single from the album was "Don't You Wish It Was True." The album contains two war protest songs, "Long Dark Night" and "I Can't Take It No More," both of which speak out against the Bush administration and the Iraq War. The latter song marks Fogerty's first experimentation with punk rock and also contains a lyric that refers to one of his hits with CCR, by referring to Bush as a "Fortunate Son."
The album debuted at number 14 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 65,000 copies in its first week.
The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album of 2008, but it lost to Foo Fighters's ''Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace''. This album was #11 on ''Rolling Stones list of the Top 50 Albums of 2007. This song "Gunslinger" was #12 on ''Rolling Stones list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007. - Wikipedia
