Allman Bros. vs. CCR

It was one of those typical barroom arguments in Buzzy’s Country Store the other night involving which band was better the Allman Brothers or Creedence Clearwater Revival. The Allmans seemed to have been slightly favored by the drunken pollsters in Buzzy’s but I made a strong case for John Fogerty and company.

The author does a nice job summing up the good and the bad associated with both these guys and their music.)
