I'm certainly burned out on the duets concept album, where one performer teams up with a dozen or so celebrities to sift through their back catalogue. But it's practically one of the only sure-fire ways to shift some units for the veterans. Fogerty's albums have been okay over the last few years, but I don't know anyone who owns one. However, the CCR hits albums still sell a bundle, so there's still a consumer appetite out there. So, he did what he had to do, I guess.It's a weird crew he's signed up for this. There's no shortage of A-listers who would have come on board no doubt, but instead Fogerty has largely gone to Nashville names. Again, perhaps sales had something to do with that, as Nashville sounds more like him than most other genres, and those folks still sell albums. So its Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Miranda Lambert, alongside a mixed bag that includes Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket, and Dawes.
And so it goes. One I like, the next I don't. It neither sullies the legacy, nor improves it. I'd like to hear more new songs the caliber of Mystic Highway though.
