Incredibly good album marred by a couple instrumentals and an overlong Effigy. All the other tracks are great.

Un po' schiacciato tra la perfetta concisione del celebre "Green river" ed il capolavoro "Cosmo's factory", "Willy and the poor boys" risulta sempre penalizzato quando si parla dei migliori dischi dei Creedence. Forse gli fa difetto una canzone da far saltare il banco ( una "Proud Mary", per dire ) ma per il resto ha tutto: una canzone capolavoro come "Effigy", una perfetta e riuscitissima cover come "Cotton fields", rock blues, riff e ritmi nella loro miglior, seppur breve, tradizione. Lo scherzo di "Poorboy shuffle" è la ciliegina sulla torta.

Willy and the poor boys, is the weakest of the first five Creedence Clearwater Revival albums. I'm not saying it's bad, but it is the least inspired of those records. Still, it has two of the greatest CCR songs in, feelin' blue, and, effigy. Both brilliant. Fortunate son, is another standout. Not their best, but still good.
