John Fogerty is the second solo album by former Creedence Clearwater Revival vocalist/guitarist John Fogerty, released in 1975. It was released by Asylum Records in the United States and Fantasy Records internationally.
The album consists of a mix of originals and cover songs, and displays a move back towards the rock music of his Creedence Clearwater Revival days, and away from the country and traditional sounds of his previous album, The Blue Ridge Rangers.
The song "Rockin' All Over the World" was covered by the band Status Quo in 1977, becoming one of their most recognizable songs, while Dave Edmunds made his cover of "Almost Saturday Night" one of his staple songs.
Although the album is eponymously titled, Fogerty himself refers to it as "Old Shep"; Shep was the name of his dog, who appears on the cover with him.
