good sound, but......
I have all 7 SACD albums installment on this APO label. Mostly great albums and great sounds too. Buy "Cosmo's Factory", "Willy & the Poor Boys", "CCR 1st LP", "Pendulum" SACDs. They're great. Avoid "Green River" and "Bayou Country" on this APO label new SACD series, which I think sounded not as great (muffled). The "Mardi Gras" SACD is a 50/50 chance: a very good recording quality and good sounding, but not a great song material. It's up to you. See my other review on "Green River", "Bayou Country", "Cosmo's Factory", "Willy & the Poor Boys" SACDs.

Definitively the worst and final Creedence album!
I didn't think this was not excellent CD because the way that John Fogerty had to do four song title tracks. Instead they had to leave it up for bassist Stu Cook to do vocals with drummer Doug Clifford also. These were the last, final days and problems put a strain on the bands success & career after Tom Fogerty left CCR. They should be a shamed to their record company industry for putting them in charge and not each other. Because their style of hard & folk rock music was way better back then I remembered. In my opinion there was nothing that sounded good on a few tunes except "Sweet Hitch-Hiker", "Looking For A Reason", "Hello Mary Lou" and "Someday Never Comes" are definitive classics instead heard but not this album!

CCR's Nadir, But Not That Bad
On their final studio album, "Mardi Gras", Creedence Clearwater Revival was reduced down to a trio. That's not a bad thing. Moreover, John Fogerty took it upon himself to allow his 2 remaining bandmates, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford, to share their own compositions, as well as singing, and that explains why "Mardi Gras" was the nadir of Creedence Clearwater Revival's career. First of all, all 4 of John Fogerty's own originals are fantastic, of course. "Someday Never Comes" and "Sweet Hitch-Hiker" are 2 of CCR's timeless classics as well. Second of all, unfortunately, Stu Cook's compositions are the worst, with the exception of "Door To Door", a nice little rocker. However, the problem with Stu Cook is his inability to sing and write descent or catchy material. He fails to do that, and it shows, especially on the album's worst track "Sail Away." I can at least find that particular song to be a joke, and it's hard not to laugh when I listen to it. It's pretty obvious that these compositions were better left in the can, and Stu Cook was the main one who just about ruined this whole album. Like I said, "Door To Door" was the best he could do to come up with a fairly descent song. Anyway, third, Doug Clifford comes close to a sigh of relief and his material is slighly better, especially with the ballad "Need Someone To Hold." Of Clifford's other 2 compositions, I only consider "Tearing Up The Country" to be another worthwhile non-Fogerty composition on the album. "Tearing Up The Country" has a good country/rockabilly-like rhythm. As for John Fogerty's offerings, they are all great, like I said. Aside from "Someday Never Comes" and "Sweet Hitch-Hiker", "Looking For A Reason" is a nice little country number. He does a great cover of Ricky Nelson's "Hello Mary Lou" as well. At least Fogerty's 4 great compositions help encourage me to still give "Mardi Gras" a 4-star rating, without ranking lower. As a fan and completist of CCR/John Fogerty, I still consider "Mardi Gras" to be a fairly good album on its own terms, just not a great one.

Should have never been released
In a perfect world, "Someday Never Comes", "Sweet Hitchhiker", and maybe "Hello Mary Lou" would have been released as bonus cuts on a best of album and Mardi Gras would never have been released. Those cuts are great; the rest of the album is unbelievably bad. I just bought it because I am a CCR fan and completist. But the writing and singing that aren't Fogerty's (6 of the 10 cuts) are just terrible. Fogerty has engaging guitar licks on every song but you have to sit through the songs to get to them. Take my advice; don't be a completist; buy "Chronicles" and let "Mardi Gras" rest in peace.
