The Great Albums

Apr 17, 2017

Musician Adam Weiner ( joins Bill and Brian to discuss Creedence Clearwater Revival's Willy and the Poor Boys. Adam talks about the ubiquity of CCR and how it led him to discover some other great music. Then Bill, Brian, and Adam discuss Philly accents, Flannery O'Conner and the Southern Gothic, how a song's overuse can affect how we listen to it, who sung it better (CCR or the Beach Boys?), Lead Belly and his influence on this album, the influence of Chuck Berry and Roy Orbison, Barack Obama's official playlist, and more as we make our way through the album track by track!

Low Cut Connie's Dirty Pictures (part 1) available for pre-order now!

Sorry guys. I was really looking forward to this episode, being a huge CCR fan. However you had an stoner muso over-analyse every song. I swear you had to drag him back onto the topic. Hopefully, you'll get back to your brilliant best next full episode.
