CoverEdit

When asked about if the wet Fender guitar used on the cover was real, Fogerty said, "Oh yes, it is a real photo. I bought a new Fender Stratocaster just for this occasion. After the shooting we dried every part of the guitar. Maybe I should put it on show now".[4]

In 2004 a remastered version of Blue Moon Swamp was released. It features renewed sound and two bonus tracks, which were previously released on singles in either 1997 or 1998, "Just Pickin'" and "Endless Sleep".[5][6]
