..That on December 21, 2012 Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival will be played 1,000s of times. I love some Creedence Clearwater Revival. Proud Mary, Lodi, Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Fortunate Son, etc.

CCR is a great band. I used to have bad moon rising on a little vynil record with a little record play when I was 6 or 7 years old. I wore that thing out.

I know when the world was suppose to end last summer. The number one played song was It's the end of the world as we know it. I have a feeling that will be playing in radios again.

CCR is the sound track of my youth. The song that best represents that time in my head is Fortunate Son. They all take me back...

Just like last summer I will be blaring Left Behind, by Slipknot.

Believe it or not, I have several CCR 78 rpm albums in almost mint condition. At one time I was an audiophile, with a kick-ass stereo system, including the baddest turntable I could find. I still own about a hundred albums, none of which has so much as a finger-print on it. Oddly, my daughter was leafing through the albums several days ago and discovered an unopened Michael Jackson "Thriller" album that I didn't know I had. It must have been a gift, because I never would have bought it myself.

I had many favorites back then, including CCR, ELO and the Eagles. I still have their albums.

Long Mike, I had the turntable, two big stand-up speakers and a tape recorder. Stereo was a big thing back them.

CCR is good but I am a big Beatles fan and loved to listen the the Fab Four.

Wife and I still have about a hundred pounds of 78's in storage.

Wow, and I thought I was older than you. I recall the 78 rpm records, and my parents having some 78 rpm albums. The only albums I can recall off the top of my head from those days were by "The Ink Spots". By the time I reached my middle teens most albums were 33 1/3 rpm. Must have been about the same time that singles were mostly 45 rpm.

I can remember having some 78s that were cracked between the hole in the center and the edge. If you got the crack aligned just right, you could play the record with a slight tick, tick, tick in the audio. If not, it would endlessly repeat a few words, or the needle would go screaming to the end of the record. The needles on the old 78 players were quite crude compared to those found on the high tech, slower rpm players.

The needles didn't last very long, and if you didn't change them regularly the records didn't last long either.

Dang! Why'd you have to bring this up and remind me how old I am.

You listen to the Ink Spots too? I was starting to think I was the only one that listener to them. I heard one of their songs in a video game and fell in love with their music.

The band Tesla did a pretty good rendition of Lodi on their 'Five Man Acoustical Jam' album. And a Stones tune, 'Mother's little helper'. Check it out.....

I saw them back when I was a teenager at a hotel. Got to sit in, and play drums. I think they only had one original member, though. This was at least 25 years ago.

The Ink Spots - They have a cool, old time sound -

But by today's standards ~ a Seriously Politically Incorrect Name ~
