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 The finest CCR collection ever issued. November 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This past Saturday night PBS presented another edition of its Emmy Award-winning series "Live By Request". On this night the special guest star was was lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival John Fogerty. John is 64 years old now but the man proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can still rock and roll with the best of 'em. Perhaps by coincidence (probably not) Fantasy records has just issued a marvelous new collection of all of the singles ever released by Creedence Clearwater Revival during their brief four year chart run. "Creedence Clearwater Revival: The Singles Collection" offers up a total of 30 memorable tunes a few of which you may never had heard and a few bonus goodies to boot. The folks at Fantasy have certainly put together one terrific package here.

The group that would one day come to be known as Creedence Clearwater Revival was formed by four high school students in El Cerrito, California back in 1959. When they signed with Fantasy in 1964 they billed themselves as The Golliwogs. What sets "The Singles Collection" apart from other CCR anthologies released in the past is that you will find three of these early Golliwogs songs included here. Check out "Porterville" "Walking On the Water" and "Call It Pretending" for a hint of the greatness that was yet to come. The boys re-branded themselves as Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1968 and reissued an old Golliwogs 45 "Porterville" b/w Call It Pretending" but still the record went nowhere. Finally in the fall of '68 CCR hit the charts for the very first time with a re-make of the old Dale Hawkins tune "Suzie-Q". The song peaked at #11 nationwide and CCR was off and running.

5.0 out of 5 stars CCR as first heard on Top-40 radio November 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As a band that had tremendous top-40 success during the hey-day of freeform radio, Creedence Clearwater Revival stood with one foot planted firmly in each world. Their LPs were recorded in well-produced stereo, offered extended jams, thoughtful cover songs and deep album cuts that found room on underground FM stations such as Bay Area legends KMPX and KSAN. But above ground, the band's music was remixed into powerful mono, edited for length and unleashed via AM powerhouses. AM's narrow frequency range added emphasis to the music's midrange, focusing listeners on Fogerty's vocals and stinging guitar leads, and further revealing the band's rhythm section to be among the most rock-solid and potent of its era. Their driving rhythms are just that much more driving in mono, and the band's pop tunes sprang easily from a single speaker in the middle of a car's dashboard.

Fogerty wrote with the goal of placing his songs alongside the R&B hits the group had grown up loving on Oakland's KWBR and Sacramento's KRAK. His originals stood toe-to-toe on album, airwave and top-40 chart with covers of "Suzie Q," "I Put a Spell on You" and "I Heard it Through the Grapevine." Included here are the A- and B-sides of thirteen original singles, ranging from 1968's "Porterville" (b/w "Call it Pretending") through 1972's "Someday Never Comes" (b/w "Tearin' Up the Country"). Also included is the single-edit of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" (b/w "Good Golly Miss Molly") that was released in 1976, four years after the group disbanded, and both sides of the stereo promotion-only experiment "45 Revolutions Per Minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creedence Clearwater Revival-The Singles Collection November 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD set is a collection of the single mixes of every CCR hit from their peak 1968-1971 period. Warning-they are mixed in mono, so be prepared. Nevertheless, the sound quality is great and it is nice to hear these classic songs sound the way I remember them hearing when I was 12-13. This is a must for any collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Way It Was On AM April 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have all these tracks in storage (all my 45rpms)& glad to see the singles released exactly the way they were without being common stereo versions. Every number is a classic except the two oddball tracks that I have as well in my collection. This one like the Three Dog Night mono mixes sound absolutely great!(those are found on a few releases as well) this is the way I grew up hearing and buying records. I know, why not stereo, get the albums or the many "Best Of" collections if your looking for the album versions heard on FM radio. What I really liked was the fact that the "B" sides were sometimes every bit as good as the "A" side of the single. So if you have the cash and really want to hear the band like I did when they were together, then this is the ticket. Remember though, being in mono they will sound better playing in your car or a small portable stereo. My high end system is better playing the stereo recording from the albums. Anyone over 40 I highly recommend this collection, if you like the band and are under 30, it might be a disappointment because of the mono format. Anyway, I am happy with it as other reviewers.
Check my website out sometime and say "Hi" at "Judemac Forever" Google it.
