These 40th anniversary Creedence Clearwater Revival reissues have been made available at a very competitive price here in Australia. I first bought Bayou Country and then Green River, two favourite albums from the sixties. I was pleased to find that the total product is one which befits the quality of the band's output. The remastered sound is perfect, the bonus tracks worth hearing and the liner notes, particularly those written by Dave Marsh for Green River, incisive.

I took a chance with this first self titled album, not having heard it in total previously, and then went on to buy the remaining reissues. There are gems on all of them. The music is honest, it has none of the pretentious twaddle that bogged other bands of the era (including the biggest), and as Ben Fong-Torres indicates in these liner notes, it is this music, this combination of roots' elements which gives CCR longevity. I would add influence; listen to Kings of Leon's great album Aha Shake Heartbreak and tell me you don't hear Creedence's rootsy rock attack, Fogerty's vocal language and economy of style.

The band cooks. A great rhythm section and Fogerty has been occasionally overlooked as a guitarist in lists of pantheon guitar slingers, possibly because the songs are deceptively simple on execution, but what a fine guitarist he was and is - I saw him at the Byron Bay Blues Festival in 2008 where he levitated an entire marquee. Such lists tend to concentrate on the more flamboyant speedsters but Fogerty's approach is lean, melodic and rhythmic; it has attack but not excess.

Fogerty's voice is an instrument of great power and range. He covers the mighty Wilson Pickett's soul classic Ninety Nine and a Half and you barely recall the horn section.

This was the debut album by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It established their highly original sound, which was a lot different than any of the other bands that came out of the San Francisco scene (like CCR did). While they did have their sound down, John Fogerty's songwriting wasn't quite as good as it would later be. It's notable that the two chart singles from the album, "Suzie Q" and "I Put a Spell On You" are covers of songs from the '50s (by two guys named Hawkins who were of no relation to each other). The other cover song on the album was the more recent "Ninety-Nine and a Half" by Wilson Pickett. John Fogerty's original songs are good, but he got ever better as he went along. The best original song on the album, in my opinion, is "Walk on the Water", which Tom Fogerty co-wrote with John. This song actually dates from the pre-Creedence days, when the band was known as the Golliwogs. This is a very good album by CCR, but the best was yet to come.

Creedence Clearwater Revival (self titled) - (bonus tracks edition): This is a Great album although the individual songs have little in common with each other except the fact that they introduce the unique sound of the band. CCR became one of the biggest bands of the late 1960's and early 70's, and rightly so. It was not until the very end of their existence that they made a weak album, but starting with this first album, they created some of the finest music of the era. This CD is Highly Recommended.

John Fogerty has a voice that's unique: powerful, raw, almost scary, and unforgettable. He'd been making records since 1959 with his band The Blue Velvets--which had its name changed against their will by the record company to The Golliwogs (! ). But several years and singles without success later, they realized something needed to be done. John took over singing lead from his brother Tom and, in the spirit of the times, renamed themselves CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL. For a band with a "psychedelic era"-style moniker, they sure sounded more BLUESY than most of their contemporaries. "CCR" opens with a downright spooky version of Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell On You", and the aura, style & mood of the album continued from there! Other highlights include "Suzie Q" (at 8:30 the single was split between 2 sides!); "Ninety-Nine And A Half" (the similarity of the opening bit to The Blues Brothers' "Groove Me" no doubt due to it being co-written by Steve Cropper-- I'm also reminded of some early Steve Miller tunes); "Get Down Woman" (see early Fleetwood Mac for more in this style); "Porterville" (really bouncy, this had earlier been a single before the band's name-change); "Gloomy" (starts out slow but builds to a tremendous guitar-jam); and "Walk On The Water" (a spooky march-like song, the only one in CCR's 7 albums co-written by Tom Fogerty). CCR didn't go over big on first release-- but THESE guys, especially John, were just WARMING UP! Like some others, I started out with a "hits" collection, but decided I needed MORE. This album is the perfect place to start!

This is CCR's first album from 1968, an album full of raw, down home, bluesy and countrified harder rock music that made me a fan of theirs. This is also the first album of theirs I ever listened to. The album has much more cover material than their other albums, but their covers are performed with precision, and of course, John Fogerty wrote most of the rest of the material, which is of course, awesome. As for the covers, "Susie Q" (Dale Hawkins) stands out as an 8 1/2 minute epic, a great treatment of a classic rock jam from 11 years prior. The original material to me is the best, and shows the accomplished composer/writer John Fogerty was and that there was promise of even better songs ahead in CCR's tenure in the music world. "The Working Man" is a driving blues-rock number with witty lyrics about growing up quick to make it on in the world alone, and upping status in life on one's own accord: "I don't mess around with magic child; what I got is mine" I love the " don't take me on Friday Lord cuz that's when I get paid" and if it is his time to go to take him "on Saturday night" before "Sunday get [his] head." All in all, a fun listen. "Get Down Woman" is a straight blues-rock jam about a woman who isn't acting right with her man. "Porterville" is a relic of a song. It is from 1967 when CCR was called the Golliwogs. It is a nice swamp rock jam. "Gloomy" is as close as CCR ever approached to doing psychedelic rock (remember, this IS 1968, the head of the psychedelic era), for it has some trippy sound effects. I love the instrumentation and guitar use through this jam. "Walking on the Water" is a classic CCR song with its again down home musicianship. The lyrics are mystical and at time fantastical, and beautiful.Read more ›
