A Quick Tip by Bethany_K

Saw them play last year at Lumberjack Days in Minnesota. Great music, unfortunately the sound system was lack a bit and the lead singer did sound so great. Still a fun group to see at a summer festival.

More Creedence Clearwater Revival: ... reviews

The finest CCR collection ever issued.
Recently PBS presented another edition of its Emmy Award-winning series "Live By Request".   On this night the special guest star was was lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival John Fogerty.  John is 64 years old now but the man proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can still rock and roll with the best of 'em.  Perhaps by coincidence (probably not) Fantasy records has just issued a marvelous new collection of all of the singles …

Wiki

Creedence Clearwater Revival's golden era of hit singles (fall of 1968 through spring of 1972) rivals that of any band in rock 'n' roll history. The Southern-flavored quartet from El Cerrito, Calif., turned out 17 hits in a 44-month stretch, nine of them in the Top 10, five of them in the Top 5. 

 

Fantasy Records is proud to present The Singles Collection, a two-CD, one-DVD box with a slip case, containing all of the band's U.S. singles -- 30 songs in all. Top 5 smashes like "Bad Moon Rising," "Green River," "Down on the Corner," "Travelin' Band," "Who'll Stop the Rain," "Run Through the Jungle," "Up Around the Bend," "Long As I Can See the Light" and "Lookin' Out My Back Door" are joined by seldom-heard singles that never charted ("Porterville" and "Call It Pretending" on Fantasy's Scorpio subsidiary, and later singles "Tearin' Up the Country" and "45 Revolutions Per Minute [Parts 1 & 2]").

The 30 songs, (which are presented in their original single mixes, many of them in mono --- are making their CD debut), housed on two CDs, will be joined by a DVD containing four never-before-available, long-pre-MTV music videos: "I Heard it Through the Grapevine," "Bootleg," "I Put a Spell on You" and "Lookin' Out My Back Door." Also included in the package are a poster featuring the dozens of ...
