    Harry Bellefonte wrote this song about the Caribbean Islands; I like these songs about far off places like Lemon Tree.

    @Beth Gallagher did you hear it and what do you think of it? I know I've had lots of CCR 8 tracts,a few records but not heard anything like this on them.

    That has always been there in the "extended" version. The track that was mostly played on the radio was only about 4:30 long so that long riff isn't included most of the time.

    Here's a better explanation, from Wikipedia... "Creedence Clearwater Revival released a version on their debut album in 1968. The band's only Top 40 hit not written by John Fogerty, it peaked at number 11[16] for one week in November 1968. This song was their first big hit.[17] The album version clocks in at 8:37. The single is split into parts one and two on its A and B sides, respectively. The jam session during the coda is omitted in part one. Instead, it fades out with the guitar solo right before the coda, which fades in with part two on the B-side. Fogerty plays the main riff from "Smokestack Lightning" after the second verse."
