Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly, and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles--most of which are present on this collection. These include "I Heard It through the Grapevine," "Lodi," "Up Around the B ," "Who'll Stop the Rain," and of course "Bad Moon Rising." This is an excellent greatest-hits collection, and a perfect introduction to the music of a band that has been enduringly influential.--Genevieve Williams

Although purists may say that key tunes were left off of this helping of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Chronicle, Vol. 1," most casual fans will be well pleased with purchasing this album.

If you want a quick smattering of this all time great band, grab this record at once! Almost all of these songs are true classics. I started with this one and was so impressed that I collected all their original recordings. The music is a good blend of Americana music at its best between the late sixties and early seventies. I prefer the eleven minute version of "Grapevine" from Cosmos Factory and don't care for Hey Tonight too much but otherwise this is as close to perfect as you can get.
