Creedence Clearwater Revival Willy And The Poorboys 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 album Creedence Clearwater Revival paralleled the flowering of the San Francisco music scene, but the Creedence 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 influential songwriters.

With the release of their second album, Bayou Country, which was home to such classics as “Proud Mary” and “Born on the Bayou,” it became evident that Creedence had an uncanny knack for writing hits. Third album Green River and songs like "Bad Moon Rising" and the title track propelled the band even further towards greatness. So popular was CCR worldwide that by 1970 the group was consistently scoring hits on both the A and B sides of its singles, a feat previously accomplished by Elvis Presley and the Beatles. 

Fourth LP, Willy And The Poorboys, released in November of 1969, proved to be no exception, containing "Fortunate Son" and "Down On The Corner," the latter becoming one of the biggest hits in CCR's daunting catalog. Additional standouts include excellent renditions of standards like "Cotton Fields" and "Midnight Special." Willy And The Poorboys remained on the Billboard charts for 60 weeks, scoring as high as #3 and earning the group their third platinum LP.
