Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and containing rare previously unreleased bonus material. Cosmo's Factory is the fifth album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1970. The peak of a prolific streak, Cosmo's Factory was Creedence's fifth album in less than two years. It was a major commercial success, reaching #1 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart, and spawning three top-5 singles; "Lookin' Out My Back Door" (US #2), "Travelin' Band" (US #2), and "Up Around the Bend" (US #4) were all big hits. The year 2008 marks the 40th anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival. The album is packaged in a beautiful digi-pak, faithfully recreating the original album packages in meticulous detail and the CD reissue contains expanded liner notes.

Given their legendary status today it is difficult to believe that Creedence Clearwater Revival was widely regarded as a rather "light weight" band in its time. Some of rock's more celebrated tastemakers even turned up their noses and pronounced Creedence Clearwater Revival a bubblegum act. "After all, what are their little pop songs compared with Jimi Hendrix? The Beatles? Jefferson Airplane?" As time has gone by, Creedence Clearwater Revival has stood with the best of them. Unfortunately, like most of the great 1960's rock bands, Creedence Clearwater Revival would not survive long into the next decade. The Beatles were no more by the spring of 1970. Hendrix would die in the Fall of the same year. Jim Morrison died in the early Summer of 1971. And Creedence Clearwater Revival disintegrated by 1972. In spite of the fact that for years all of the band members lurked in obscurity (John Fogerty deliberately so), with the release of their very first greatest hits compilation, Creedence Gold, their stature has only grown and their song catalogue has traveled well over the years.
Unlike most, Creedence Clearwater Revival has been served very well by the various "best of" packages that have been issued over the years. So why bother with the original albums? Individual cases can be made for the others; but Cosmo Factory is one of the greatest rock albums made. With its kind of cheesy cover it is easy to misjudge Cosmos Factory as a piece of junk. But appearances are deceiving. Inside are eleven cuts which have burned their way into the modern American songbook.
"Run Through The Jungle" and "Up Around The Bend" were put out over the radio as a pair and were the first songs the public heard off the album.

Amazon.com reviewers have no idea what they're talking about. Yes, this album has many popular singles on it, but that's not all. Every single song on this album is amazing and this is by far Creedence Clearwater Revival's best album. I was never really excited by any CCR album as I was excited with this one.
It combines every good quality of CCR on to one wonderful album. It has the extended/jam tracks that are essential to any southern rock album, in my opinion. "Ramble Tamble" is a 7-minute rocker that just makes want to get up and start playing air guitar. While most people dispose of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" as excessive or filler, I find it to be one of the best songs on the album. CCR adapted the song as well as any other artist could have. Surprisingly, John Fogerty puts about a pretty damn good 7 minute guitar solo, proving that he is one of the most underrated guitar players of the seventies.
Also included on this album are the fifties covers/sounding tunes that Fogerty loves so much. "My Baby Left Me" and "Ooby Dooby" are both fifties covers, but are still both awesome. In fact I've come to like the 50's type songs CCR does as well as any of their other stuff because of the ones they do on this album. Truly great.
Of course, there are the wonderfully written and catchy pop-like southern rock (for lack of a better style name) songs that Fogerty and CCR are most famous for.

CCR's 5th album must have been the PEAK of their run; so many great, inspired songs here! After the sprawling borderline-progressive opener "Ramble Tamble" it's almost a greatest hits album! "Travelin' Band" (on my short list of "loudest songs ever recorded" and the current show-closer-- what could POSSIBLY come after it?), "Ooby Dooby", "Lookin' Out My Back Door" (definitely a Buck Owens fan), "Run Through The Jungle", "Up Around The Bend", "Who'll Stop The Rain" (remember when BOTH sides of a 45 were "A"-side material?), "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" (a version that stands well against Marvin Gaye's AND Gladys Knight's-- isn't it amazing that at 11:05 it doesn't seem "too long"? ) and "Long as I Can See the Light". WOW!

This album is a rarity if only for the sheer amount of hit songs it spawned. Creedence was the ultimate singles group of its day, and this record (released in 1970) really exemplifies that fact, showcasing their good-ole' jugband swamp rock. Let's face it; many of their other albums were quite patchy (some even lacklustre at worst), but this one is consistently excellent, featuring many of their most fun and catchy tunes. 'Cosmo' rolls on like Proud Mary, integrating many hit-and-run favourites like "Up Around The Bend", "Travellin' Band", "Lookin' Out My Back Door" and "Ooby Dooby" (their silliest track) with folky stuff such as "Who'll Stop The Rain" and a brooding Vietnam War song "Run Through The Jungle". This album features their version of Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" in all of its 11 minute+ glory (no shortcuts here) plus an energetic opener jam named "Ramble Tamble" and a soulful closer "Long As I Can See The Light", making for one of the finest pop albums of 1970. If you want Creedence at their very best, go for this one - it's as good as any greatest hits compilation.
