Biography

Unquestionably one of the greatest American rock bands ever, Creedence Clearwater Revival will best be remembered for their unique bayou sound popularized in songs like "Proud Mary" and "Green River."

Although their music evoked the raw, gospel-tinged sound of the rural South, Doug Clifford, Stu Cook, and Tom and John Fogerty actually hailed from El Cerrito, ... Read more in Amazon's Creedence Clearwater Revival Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A Second Great Anthology Album March 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There aren't too many bands who could put out an anthology album containing 20 songs ("Chronicle") and still have enough first rate material left to issue a second album that's equally strong. That CCR was able to do so is a testament to what a vastly talented group they were. "Chronicle Volume Two" contains a few leftover radio hits not included on the first "Chronicle" album, including "Born on the Bayou" and "Midnight Special." It then offers up a generous helping of first rate album tracks, including "Cotton Fields," "It Came Out of the Sky," "Pagan Baby," "Hideaway," and "Molina." Throw in some classic rock and blues covers "Before You Accuse Me," "Hello Mary Lou" and "Good Golly Miss Molly," and you have an excellent package on your hands. I actually prefer the second "Chronicle" album to the first because these are the songs that haven't been overplayed on classic rock radio stations. Between the two albums, CCR's heyday is well represented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can It Get Any Better Than CCR?! March 6, 2002
By Barry
Format:Audio CD
This follow up to Chronicle 1 is just as essential and rich as the first volume. This one consists mostly of album songs that were never released as singles. Some of them were. That's something that makes this CD even more fun to listen too than the classic hit filled first volume. Everyone knows those songs, but a lot of these songs aren't well known to the casual observer. You get cover versions of "Good Golly Miss Molly" and an unbelieveable pitch perfect cover of Ricky Nelson's great hit "Hello Mary lou". Fogerty was definitley channeling Ricky on that one!. It's a mystery as to why a CCR classic such as "Born On The Bayou" is on this volume instead of the first one. Other gems here are "Don't Look Now(It Ain't You Or Me)", the up tempo funk of "Born To Move", and the rocker "Pagan Baby". The band was known for doing fairly short to the point rock songs with no glitz or glamor. They are pretty much the quintessential rock band. There are many songs on here that you knew and heard of, but didn't realize that it was them who did it. Songs like "The Midnight Special" and "Before You Accuse Me". This collection also gives you the fun novelty rocker "It Came Out Of The Sky". It also has the undoubtedly perfect ballad, "(Wish I Could) Hideaway". If you have Volume one, then you need this one. It's an essential piece of music that would be in any rock and roll fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific companion volume to "Chronicle" December 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The 20-track "Chronicle" retrospective is by far the best single-disc Creedence compilation out there, and this second volume makes the "Chronicle" package even better. There are no hit singles here, those were all on vol. I, but plenty of great album tracks, and while few of them are as immediately recognizable as "Proud Mary" or "Bad Moon Rising", the overall quality of this material is very, very high.

Creedence put out some fabulous double-A-sided singles, but they weren't just a singles band...there were excellent album tracks stacked away on all of their LPs, and these are (most of) the best of them. Acoustic folk-rock, tough, swampy blues-rock, rockabilly and country, it's all here, and songs like the blistering rocker "It Came Out Of The Sky", the country ballad "Looking For A Reason", the spriritual-like "Don't Look Now", a groovy rendition of Leadbelly's "Midnight Special", and the bluesy "Tombstone Shadow" are among Creedence's finest.
A superb compilation, almost as transcendent as volume I.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection, But Where is Effigy? July 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This collection is excellent, although I'd recommend Vol. 1 first. Lots of great songs here that are overlooked by classic rock radio. If you find that you like Vol. 1, but don't want to buy actual albums, this is a great way to delve deeper into the CCR catalouge.

My biggest problem is that "Effigy" isn't present. I think its among CCR's best songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but unveven May 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
A tremendous collection of songs here. The "hits" are primarialy compiled on the first Volume, but there is plenty of worthy music to be found here. "Born on the Bayou", for instance, is essential, as are many songs here like "Wrote a Song for Everyone". But there is also some lesser-quality work here, which makes for a more uneven listen. Throw Vols 1 & 2 in a changer together, hit random, and it's a hell of a listen!

5.0 out of 5 stars More From The Best American Band of the 1960's July 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you liked the 1st Chronicle, give this a try. It picks up "Suzie Q" (Part 2) where part 1 left off and includes the classic "Born on the Bayou". This collection includes not only important "B-sides" (like the 2 mentioned) but regular album cuts like "Good Golly Miss Molly", "It Came Out of the Sky", "Wrote a Song for Everyone", "Before You Accuse Me", and the essential "Midnight Special". If you're still hungry for more after both Chronicle CD's, then you need to buy their original albums!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine compilation.... June 28, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the best CCR compilation to get aside from, of course, the first Chronicle. Where Chronicle covered Creedence the singles band, this collection delves deeper into album gems. Many are as great as the CCR classics you probably know already...Born on the Bayou, Cotton Fields, It Came Out of the Sky, Molina....and more! It is a worthy listen, but truly I would advise folks to go and buy the entire Creedence catalogue. Even owning both Chronicles is not sufficient. You still would miss Keep on Chooglin', Bootleg, and other great tunes. Also, I would advise others to stay from the other Creedence compilations. They just seem to be ways for Fantasy Records to milk more money out of the consumer. No, just acknowledge that Creedence Clearwater Revival is the greatest band there ever was and get the original albums!

This CD has all little-known Creedence songs. It's not nearly as good as the first Chronicle. The plus is that it completes their work.
