2.5 averageNicksput | November 12th 17

This is the most disappointing record of 3 that CCR released in 1969. Out of all their most well-known songs, Fortunate Son and Down on the Corner are personally my least favorite. This record has a more of a country feel than anything they've done, and it lacks the stony energy of their previous releases. Fogerty and co still show some of their trademark chops, but they don't really seem to challenge themselves too much, and the short album length doesn't provide enough opportunities for memorable tracks.

3.5 greatlz41 | April 9th 17

Focusing on country and blues singalongs, "Willy & the Poor Boys" is a hokey, homey, friendly album. With the notable exception of 'Fortunate Son', which is about as unfriendly as Fogerty ever got.

3.0 goodAntonius | May 20th 13

CCR start this one as we know them, with two regular melodic swamps. However, they soon introduce harmonica and the relevant lyrical content to turn towards a southern rock path. Not relatively impressive examples, but relatively nice ones. rRecommended tracks: ''It Came Out of the Sky'', ''Feelin' Blue'', ''Side O' the Road''

4.0 excellentLokitheTrickster | March 1st 12

Many good songs. Down On the Corner, Fortunate Son, Effigy, etc. And The Midnight Special is now my favorite song by the band.
