"The Blue Ridge Rangers" is the first solo album by John Fogerty, the former lead singer and lead guitarist of Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was released by Fantasy Records in 1973 as by "The Blue Ridge Rangers." The reason Fogerty chose to issue the album under The Blue Ridge Rangers name was to put some distance between himself and the Creedence legacy he wore like an albatross. [ [ AllMusic: "The Blue Ridge Rangers - Biography] ] The LP was later reissued as by John Fogerty with a different cover design. The CD reissue restores the original silhouette cover photo and credits the album to Fogerty. The album is made up entirely of country and rock covers with Fogerty playing every instrument. The album peaked at #47 on the charts. Two singles from the album became hits: "Jambalaya" which peaked at #16 and "Hearts of Stone" which peaked at #37.
