Mr. Pop History -
Back in April of 1976, four members of the Jackson 5 sued Motown records, seeking a Superior Court judgment granting termination of any contractual responsibilities to the label and an accounting on alleged royalties due them.
The four were Tariano, Sigmund, Esco, Marlon and Michael Jackson. The suit asked the court to order Motown to allow their accountants to audit Motown books covering royalty statements from 1972 to the present (1976).
Mr. Pop History – They were one of the hottest pop/rock bands of 1969, 1970 and into 1971. They sold singles and albums by the millions – and, from the small Fantasy Record label.
Creedence – well, he was a real person. Credence Nuball. Band members also thought – adding an extra “e” gave them – well, creedence. Like creed. Credence Nuball was a friend of a friend of Tom Fogerty.
Clearwater – originally came from ads from beer maker Olympia – made from cool, clear water. THey liked its clean environmental sensibility.
Revival came from their musical values – values they carried from their beginning. Afterall – it took the band some eight years to “make it.”
