"Blueboy" was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.Personnel: John Fogerty (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, lap steel guitar, dobro, bouzouki, mandolin, sitar, organ, tambourine); Donald "Duck" Dunn, Howie Epstein, John Clayton, Michael Rhodes , Phil Chen, Bob Glaub (bass instrument); Kenny Aronoff (drums, percussion); Chester Thompson , Jeff Donavan, Eddie Bayers, Chad Smith , Vinnie Colaiuta (drums); Luis Conte (claves, maracas, tambourine, percussion).On his first album in 11 years, CCR mastermind Fogerty comes charging out of the gate with undiminished authority. BLUE MOON SWAMP is full of the straight-ahead roots-rock that made Creedence a legend. It's rumored that the recording of this album was painstakingly slow, with Fogerty spending months to get the right drum and guitar sound for each track. It's the mark of a true craftsman that for all it's intensive production and the large cast of guests, BLUE MOON SWAMP still sounds like Fogerty just ambled into the studio with a few pals and laid it all down.While there are a few stylistic diversions, like the Tex-Mex-flavored "Bring It Down To Jelly Roll," the bulk of the material is virtually identical in approach and tone to that of Fogerty's glory days. The amazing thing is that he never sounds tired or stale. If anything, he sounds more self-assured and powerful than on his previous solo outings. When Fogerty trots out the tremolo-guitar intro to "A Hundred And Ten In The Shade," you can feel the pure, blues-inflected rock and roll inspiration that lies at the heart of his finest work.
