Rolling Stone wrote at the time: “It should be obvious by now that Creedence Clearwater Revival is one great rock and roll band. Cosmo’s Factory, the group’s fifth album, is another good reason why… Apart from prolific writing, Fogerty’s ability to consistently churn out good stuff is largely due to his penchant for rehearsing the band five days a week in a converted warehouse in Berkeley’s industrial section…  Besides saxophone, Fogerty is now learning all
the other instruments he’s always wanted to play. In addition to lead guitar and vocal on Bo Diddley’s “Before You Accuse Me” he drops in some fine blues piano riffs but apparently out of modesty keeps them pretty well buried in an easy-going, traditional arrangement… It’s another damn good album by a group which is going to be around for a long time.”

Key prhase:”Look out your back door for a travelin’ band running
through the jungle to stop the rain when hearing it though the grapevine.”
