Creedence Clearwater Revival Pendulum 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.
After four years of nearly nonstop performing CCR had become the number one American rock and roll attraction and they sound as polished and tight as ever on their criminally underrated sixth album Pendulum (1970). Of the two hit singles from the release, "Hey Tonight" and "Have You Ever Seen The Rain," the latter's slower ballad format clearly suggests that the band was exploring new styles and textures, including an emphasis on instrumentals. With this swing of the Pendulum the creative tasks would in the future also be shared by all members of the group for the first time.
