Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Bad Moon Rising" - Rated 364/500!
The third album by Fogerty and company was released in 1969 and features two of the group's best-known songs "Bad Moon Rising" and "Green River".
The re-issued vinyl edition of the third album by one of the world's all-time greatest rock bands, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Green River remains a top-selling album in the CCR catalog with over 1.5 million copies sold to date. The album contains the ubiquitous international chart-topping hit "Bad Moon Rising" which reached #2 in the Billboard top 200 in the US and #1 in the UK upon its release in 1969 and continues to be a mainstay on classic rock radio. A 'must-have' for any serious classic rock fan, Green River represents both a true high point in songwriting creativity and the point at which the band's classic sound fully bloomed into the CCR that fans recognize and love today.
"Thanks largely to John Fogerty's rough, inimitable voice and seemingly bottomless supply of great melodies, Creedence Clearwater Revival were the preeminent American singles band of the late Sixties and early Seventies." -rollingstone.com
"The third Creedence Clearwater Revival album was their first classic LP, a tightly wrapped package of blistering guitar, roadhouse-rhythm snap and John Fogerty's backwoods howl. The lengthy jamming on CCR's previous LPs is gone, and Fogerty has found his lyrical voice radio-ready essays in frontier living ("Green River," "Lodi") and working-stiff politics ("Bad Moon Rising," "Wrote a Song for Everyone"). As producer, he makes it all sound so gritty and easy, too like CCR had cut it all in a toolshed. "All this overproduction is funny to me," Fogerty has said. "It doesn't make it mo' betta when you add more junk." -rollingstone.com
