Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and containing rare previously unreleased bonus material. Green River is the third album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1969. In 2003, the album was ranked number 95 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Songwriter John Fogerty wrote the song, 'Lodi' about being trapped in a town called Lodi which is a town in California about 75 miles from Fogerty's hometown of El Cerrito, Contra Costa County. 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.

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.

Tape works great. My 1988 home came with a Craig cassette player/ radio stereo with speakers through out the house. Dang thing sounds great. Kids were telling me to tear it out and put in a cd or something more up to date. Never dawned on me that cassettes were still sold. Ha! I am listening to CcR and dancing all over the house. Thank you so much for this cassette. Played perfectly and sounds amazing. Excellent quality. You have made my day!

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!!!!!

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I ordered the vinyl. It arrived on time, well packaged. I am familiar with many rock reissues, including CCR on heavier vinyl from another source. This album is a tad light compared to other CCR reissues.
The album was nearly 100% flat. I was quite impressed with the sound quality, especially for the bargain price. Truly quiet between songs, I could not detect background noise. One star deducted for the pathetic packaging. The album cover is so thin it is silly. The paper cover containing the record was 1% shredded, which made a mess on the record. This is where they save money and pass it on to us. Bad idea. Try buying reissues where the complete gate fold cover is recreated in all its thick glory (thank you Neil Young). I'd rather pay $10 more for a decent cover that offers some protection. Blame Fantasy, their name is on the album.
Still, for the price, and the sound quality, if you have a turntable, buy this. It is a great thing to have in your collection.

"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!
