With the release of Cosmo's Factory in July 1970, Creedence Clearwater Revival hit their commercial zenith. It was their fifth album in two years and became an international smash, topping the album charts in six countries. The band also toured Europe in 1970, playing the Royal Albert Hall to enthusiastic audiences, and had emerged as the most popular band in America by largely ignoring the trippy acid rock indulgences that were typical of the era and instead focusing on the band's infectious blend of rockabilly, folk and R&B.
The name of the album comes from the warehouse in Berkeley where the band rehearsed early in their career. It was dubbed "The Factory" by drummer Doug "Cosmo" Clifford, because bandleader John Fogerty made them practice there almost every day. The album features the singles "Travelin' Band", "Who'll Stop The Rain", "Run Through The Jungle", "Up Around The Bend", "Lookin' Out My Back Door", "Long As I Can See The Light" plus the band's eleven-minute interpretation of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine".
