Doug ”Cosmo” Clifford – California Gold (2022) Cliffsong Records

Doug “Cosmo” Cliffordnak, a Creedence ikonikus dobosának kincses tárháza van a kiadatlan felvételekből, amelyeket az évek során készített. Idén nyáron újra felfedezte a California Gold nevű, régen elveszett albumát. Ebben Bobby Whitlock énekel 10 eredeti dalt, amelyeket Cosmo-val közösen írt. A dalok a rock és a dallamos blues kombinációja. Whitlockról annyit kell tudni, hogy született Robert Stanley Whitlock (1948. március 18., Memphis, Tennessee) amerikai énekes, dalszerző és zenész. Leginkább a Derek and the Dominos blues-rock együttes tagjaként ismert, Eric Claptonnal 1970–71-ben.
California Gold valahogy elveszett az időben de most, hogy újra felfedezték az albumot, talán most van itt az ideje, hogy meghallgassuk.

Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, the iconic Creedence drummer, has a treasure trove of unreleased recordings he’s produced over the years, all safely stored in Cosmo’s Vault. This summer he re-discovered what he thought was a long-lost album called California Gold. It features Bobby Whitlock on lead vocals, singing 10 original songs he and Cosmo co-wrote together. The songs are a combination of roots rock and melodic blues, all natural with no filler and Cosmo’s drumming is rock-solid, stretching beyond his well-known Creedence grooves. For reasons that shall remain a mystery, California Gold was somehow lost in time. But now that the album has been re-discovered, perhaps its time is here and now.
