Sidetrack: Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Effigy" (1969)

Creedence Clearwater Revival are one of the early pioneers of the southern rock genre. On this week's sidetrack we touch on John Fogerty's lyrical confrontation with Richard Nixon on their 1969 album Willy And The Poor Boys, and take a quick look at the last track of the record, "Effigy". We close out this episode with an equally gloomy King's of Leon track, "Wicker Chair".
