CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL - The Complete Hit Album Vol. 1 & 2 (1987)
Creedence Clearwater Revival (often known as just CCR) were a Californian band who were said to play a form of southern rock called 'swamp rock'. Led by John Fogerty, they had an incredible run of hits at their peak, scoring nine Top 10 hits between 1969 and 1971. Creedence had begun life in 1959 as The Blue Velvets and then The Golliwogs, without much success. In 1967 they changed their name, and the following year released a self-titled album Creedence Clearwater Revival, which featured a No.11 hit in “Suzie Q”. Follow-up Bayou Country went Top 10 and included the No.2 smash hit “Proud Mary”. Their third album Green River (1969) was widely praised and spun two hit singles, “Bad Moon Rising” and “Green River”, both of which matched “Proud Mary” in reaching No.2. Willy and the Poor Boys was another hit with critics and fans, spawning two more No.5 singles. Their fifth album, Cosmo’s Factory (1970) topped the album charts and produced an incredible five Top.5 singles. There is much debate among fans and critics about which of these three albums is their best, with Cosmo’s Factory perhaps slightly edging it with most listeners. After two more albums, the adventurous Pendulum (1970) and the disappointing Mardi Gras (1972), CCR broke up. - amazon.com
