Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival on 200g LP from Analogue Productions
Mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman from the Original Analog Tapes
One of the most successful reissue catalogs in the history of Analogue Productions, the can't-miss 33 1/3 LPs are back. Only now, they're pressed at QRP on 200-gram vinyl and are housed in deluxe tip-on jackets. Still mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman from the original analog tapes, still comprising the complete seven-record studio catalog and still available as individual break-out titles and in a deluxe box set titled Absolute Originals. All of these reissues were so critically acclaimed upon their release some 10 years back. And most have been sold out for a long, long time. Now they're back and better than ever!
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, California, a small town near Berkeley.
The 1968 release of the band's debut self-titled album Creedence Clearwater Revival paralleled the flowering of the San Francisco music scene, but the CCR phenomenon had little in common with the "San Francisco Sound." That first LP contained rock standards such as Dale Hawkins's "Susie Q" and Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You," as well as original material by John Fogerty, who was to emerge as one of rock's most omnipresent hitmaking songwriters in the years that followed.
