I'm very happy to be back in touch with a part of myself, ... It's surreal. For 35 years, I never thought I'd be reunited with the music I wrote during the Creedence Clearwater Revival years.

Born On The Bayou.

I dearly loved my brother Tom.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

About a year ago we heard the same rumor again, so Julie and I met with Norman and Hal, and other people at Concord, just to get acquainted. At our first meeting, they expressed great respect and appreciation. When they finally acquired Fantasy, we figured the time was right to see if we could work together.

There's no way to overstate how cool this is.

I must admit I was hesitant. What I found disarming is they were delightful people, very respectful of me and my music. They decided to start paying me artist royalties, which they weren't contractually obligated to do. They recognized that I created all this music, and it was a huge asset for them.

I always assumed I would meet him. I never got to touch base from my heart to his heart, and I'm sure that millions of us felt the same way.

We heard rumors over the years that Fantasy was on the market, but nothing materialized.
