Although their music evoked the raw, gospel-tinged sound of the rural South, Doug Clifford, Stu Cook, and Tom & John Fogerty actually hailed from El Cerrito, CA - a small town near Berkeley. Back in 1960, while in junior high school, the boys formed a band called Tommy Fogerty & the Blue Velvets and spent much of their time practicing in the Fogertys' garage. Four years later, they auditioned for the Berkeley-based Fantasy Records where John Fogerty had been a warehouse employee, and signed as The Golliwogs. The only collection of music by The Golliwogs, Fight Fire: The Complete Recordings 1964-1967 features the band's singles and B sides plus several recordings which were never released at the time. The 23-track, 2LP-set comes housed in a Stoughton 2-pocket gatefold jacket with new liner notes by compilation producer Alec Palao.
