oh suzie q

img src =

Driving home Saturday night, I flipped through some Creedence albums that I got a few years ago. I heard, for the first time, the album version of Suzie Q, and man- what a surprise! I had never heard the jams at the end of the solos (about 4:30 through 5:, specifically the chords that ring at at 4:46 and 4:52), and again at the end of the song (6:52 - 7:15, with the jam continuing on through the end). I love those chords that ring out, to me, it gives the song a real edge that was ahead of its time. (Probably why they cut 'em out of the radio edit)
