A Sort Of Homecoming

Ahhhh. The Motherland at last. Cheese and brats on every corner. Packer merchandise on sale. Beautiful weather and a responsive crowd. I've done enough bar gigs in Wisconsin to know that anything by CCR is gonna go over big, and Summerfest was no exception. The crowd was into JF from the start, and he kept them for the entire set.

"Midnight Special" is an old Huddie Ledbeter ("Leadbelly") song that I first heard John sing back in the Creedence days. It still satisfies, and the boys in the band do a three part vocal harmony that does credit to the record.

Major Goolsby's bratwurst on the bus for after-show food...I love Wisconsin.
