With Concord Music Group having purchased the Fantasy catalog, the fortieth anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival's debut LP provides a suitable opportunity for a fresh round of reissues. All six of the original foursome's albums (from 1968's Creedence Clearwater Revival through 1970's Pendulum) have been struck from new digital masters and augmented by previously unreleased tracks. Those who purchased the 2001 box set can pick up most of the bonus tracks separately as digital downloads (the two longest bonuses are CD-only). Those who didn't buy the box, and think they'll buy all six reissues may want to consider the box set for its inclusion of pre-Creedence work from the Blue Velvets and Golliwogs, the seventh CCR album Mardi Gras, the 1970-71 live recordings and several box-only bonuses. But for those just wanting to pick up a few favorite albums, these reissues are the ticket. Each is presented in a digipack with original front and back cover album art and a 16-page booklet with photos, credits and new liner notes.

Creedence's third album (their second for 1969), Green River, is their first completely original effort as a band. Gone are the lengthy San Francisco jams, replaced by concisely written and arranged songs that concentrate Fogerty's evocations of an idealized South. The album opens with the title track's sumptuous memory of a mythical childhood, a song so deeply soaked in Southern swamps that it's hard to imagine it being written in the urban hills of California's Bay Area. The Fogerty brothers intertwine their twangy electric guitars with familial telepathy. The sound first explored on Bayou Country is now heard on every cut, mellowing the blue "Tombstone Shadow" and providing an introspective stage for Fogerty's ballads.

Three consecutive albums, "Green River," "Willy and the Poorboys," and "Cosmo's Factory," mark the artistic highpoint of Creedence's career. This is the first of those three. "Green River" flows from start to end with one great song after another, all of them propelled by that super awesome trademark Creedence sound. This album is an essential part of any good rock and roll collection.

Green River has always been a album that brings back fond memories for me. I first bought it on 8 track in 69 when it came out and it had "Bad Moon Rising", on the tape twice. I still remember the first time that I heard "Bad Moon Rising". I just stopped what I was doing and listened to the song. Not many songs have gotten my attention that way. Those were definitely turbulant times and this album helped lighten the mood. For those of you who were there and to those who weren't, I would highly recommend this album as one of CCR's best.

"Bad Moon Rising" has long been my favorite CCR song; I still recall how its appearance in the COMING ATTRACTIONS for "American Werewolf In London" practically evoked a standing ovation in a movie theatre in '81 (which was cool, but started a really bad trend in advertising). Anyway, GREEN RIVER is just packed with great songs, including "Commotion", "Wrote A Song For Everyone", "Lodi" (another personal fave of mine), "The Night Time Is The Right Time" and "Green River". Fogerty stands in FRONT of his bandmates on the cover; no wonder, as besides producing & singing lead he wrote 8 of the 9 songs here! Many have been inspired by his songs; for some strange fun, check out the cover of "Sinister Purpose" by Zacherle and Southern Culture On The Skids on the HALLOWEEN HOOTENANNY album!

I was 13 when I got this album for Christmas.One of my faves(along with the other 1st 5 CCR discs)Ive gone thru a couple of albums and 2 differant FantasyCds.Missed out on the DCCs(DID manage a Bayou,and Cosmos from them tho---great sound)Everyone who reads a reveiw of this disc no doubt knows how great it is.I want to let everyone in on the secret of the sound quality of these discs(The whole CCR hybrid sacd series).There is no comparison.Upper and lower range are extended beyond belief.Separation is goosebump time.If you love this album,and appreciate great sound as well,you MUST try any of these SACDs,masterd by SteveHoffman,the guy who did the DCCs as well.They will bring tears to yer eyes.Happy Listening indeed!!!!!

Although it lacks as many recognizable radio hits that dominate "Cosmo's Factory", this is probably the album with their BEST songs overall. The opening title track was a radio hit and is followed by the heartpounding "Commotion" and then the great "Tombstone Shadow". More good stuff is here in "Lodi", "Bad Moon Rising", and "Wrote a Song for Everyone".

Green River is with out a shadow of a doubt the best album that Creedence Clearwater Revival ever recorded! This was the last Creedence Clearwater Revival I bought, and I own them all so I know this is the best. This has been my favorite of the CCR albums ever since I bought it a few years back. This doesnt have a whole bunch of hit singles, though it does have a few.
'Green River' is not only the best album CCR ever made but its also my personal favorite CCR song. It has John Fogerty's greatest guitar riff, and the song as a whole is just killer! 'Commotion' is another great song of the album, it wasnt a big hit but it sure is a classic! 'Tombstone Shadow' is a really cool and erie song, its one of the best songs on Green River. 'Wrote A Song For Everyone' is one of my all time favorite CCR songs. 'Bad Moon Rising' and 'Lodi' are both big hits for CCR and 'Bad Moon' can get old after a while, but it sure does have a cool political message. 'Lodi' is the better song though. The rest of the album is slightly weak compared to the other songs but it is still very good.
This is the best CCR album you will ever buy, dont buy the best-of's because with a band like CCR you have to buy the albums to get all the really good songs. Dont miss out on this classic rock and roll album!

Creedence Clearwater Revival reissues ... great news, but down with the...
The initial CD releases of CCR sound horrible. In 2000, 20 bit reissues of all 7 LPs were put out in hard CD jewel cases. Those had great sound. These 2008 reissues sounds very similar, maybe slightly warmer.

Mardi Gras was a lackluster album, with Hitchhiker and Someday being the best songs.
