Classic Rock Bottom


Opening up this chapter on Rivers, I have a test for you.
Sometimes I like to see just how smart the listeners are, lol!
So you have the length of three songs to figure out the answer, although with my high regard for you, I doubt it will take that long.
After that Puzzle, I've got a River song in here that for some reason was indelibly stamped into my memory back in the 60's.
It's about a guy who is released from prison.
Everything is changed for him, and he tries so desperately to hide his crushing disappointment to the now married to someone else woman he loves.
This Theme will be continued next week.
So I hope you will return for a listen, as I musically celebrate June being National Rivers Month.
Here are the links to where everything puzzles me lol, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Sure, blue and yellow make green- you remember that from school don't you, lol?
That's funny, the "yellow" river is warm!
The CCR tune everyone knows, but that song Yellow River by Christie was a hit, and played on both the AM & FM sides of the dial.
Never thought of David Ackles sounding like Gordon Lightfoot but I see your point.
And I agree, you can tell if it's a Neil Young song in the first few seconds.
The Golden Pell is awarded to the GREAT old folkie, who's still around and making music, Eric Andersen for Blue River.
And now you're behind again, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Blue and yellow make green, huh?  That may be true, but tell me, who wants to play in the "yellow" river?   It's probably warm at least.

Nice songs, love the CCR tune.  Always have.  

The David Ackles song was very good.  Almost sounded like Gordon Lightfoot.

Down By The River is a terrific song.  Neil Young has such a distinctive playing style, you can always tell if it's a Neil Young song before the vocals.

The Golden Pell will be awarded to that first song you played about the Blue River.  Didn't catch the artist's name.  But that was a nice song.

Caught up on last week finally.

You got it...there's no fooling you, lol!
If mixing colors got people drunk, I would have surrounded myself with paint!
Actually, that second song was about coming home from Vietnam.
I'll bet you pee in the pool, lol!
Yes, you called it, Down By The River- come on up and collect your prize!
I don't know if Red River Rock used in a commercial.
A commercial comes on and I am GONE, lol!
Don't worry Jon, I will Take You To The River first chance I get.
Thanks for the listen and writing,

They're all colors!!

I was taught to never mix my colors. If I did, I would get drunk. At least I think that's what I was told. 

That first song was morbid. The second song was about peeing in the river, hence yellow river.

Hey! Down By The River! I predicted that! Me!

Was Red River Rock used in a commercial? That's my question to you.

I still wish someone would Take Me To The River......
