  • A track on Fogerty's first solo album, this is a "looking forward to the weekend" song. Dave Edmunds recorded a popular version on his 1981 album Twangin which reached #58 in the UK and #54 in the US. It's also been covered by Gene Clark, Rick Nelson and The Searchers.

  • Karla from New York, NyLOVE this FOGERTY song -- the guitars and vocals defy us to stay in our seats!!! I released Almost Saturday Night on my first solo album IS THIS A COOL WORLD OR WHAT? at the same time as Dave Edmunds -- the fabulous Fogerty song was in the zeitgeist 1981!!! Hear mine in concert live with my Is this a Cool World Tour band on my you tube channel:

  • Ken from Louisville, KyActually, this is from the "John Fogerty" 1975 album, his first solo album under his on name.
  • Jim from Aurora, CoI read in an interview with John that he ranks this song amongst his very best - 'right up there with Fortunate Son.' I have to agree - I'm a huge JCF fan and this is one of my very favorites.
