Wikipedia:
Blue Ridge Rangers is the first solo studio album by John Fogerty, the former lead singer and lead guitarist of Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Upon its initial release in 1973, the album was credited to ‘The Blue Ridge Rangers’ with no mention of Fogerty on the cover. Fogerty chose to do this in order to distance himself from his Creedence legacy. The LP was later reissued and credited to John Fogerty with a different cover design. The album is made up entirely of traditional and country covers, and features Fogerty playing all the instruments.
