Hoodoo is an unreleased studio album by John Fogerty. It was recorded in the late spring of 1976 and intended to be his third solo album.

History[edit]

After the John Fogerty solo album, Fogerty wasted no time in recording more material for a new album to be followed with a tour, which would be very low-key, with a small group of musicians.[1] In April, 1976, he released a new single, "You Got the Magic" backed with "Evil Thing," which barely made it to the charts (#87 on the Billboard Hot 100) and did not sell a great deal. Fogerty submitted Hoodoo to Asylum Records, which assigned it a catalogue number, 7E-1081. Shortly before shipment, however, Fogerty and Asylum's Joe Smith made a joint decision that the album didn't merit release. After several unsuccessful attempts to improve the album's quality, Fogerty began a nine-year estrangement from the music industry. He has confirmed in interviews that he instructed Asylum to destroy the master tapes, but bootleg copies are widespread.
