Creedence Clearwater Revival Cosmo's Factory on 180g LP
Mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Records!
Unquestionably one of the greatest American rock bands of all time, Creedence Clearwater Revival will best be remembered for their unique bayou sound popularized in songs like "Proud Mary" and "Green River." Their golden era of hit singles (fall of 1968 through spring of 1972) rivals that of any band in rock 'n' roll history. Although their music evoked the raw, gospel-tinged sound of the rural South, John and Tom Fogerty, Doug Clifford and Stu Cook actually hailed from El Cerrito, California, a small town near Berkeley.
Fifth album Cosmo's Factory, the name drummer Doug "Cosmo" Clifford gave CCR's rehearsal studio because so many hits were created there, more than lived up to its namesake. Cosmo’s Factory was the fourth and biggest of the string of five Top 10 albums CCR released between 1969 and 1970. Featured here are staples like “Travelin’ Band,” “Lookin’ Out My Back Door,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Run Through the Jungle” and covers of material by Marvin Gaye (CCR’s signature take on “I Heard it Through the Grapevine”), Bo Diddley, Roy Orbison and Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup. By the summer of 1970, CCR had undeniably become the number one American rock and roll attraction.
