Green River is the third studio album by American rock and roll band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in August 1969 after their second release Bayou Country which was released in January of the same year. It features two of the band's best-known songs, "Bad Moon Rising" and the title track.
The third LP by one of the world's all-time greatest rock bands, CCR, Green River remains a top-selling album in the CCR catalog. Green River (containing chart-topping hit Bad Moon Rising) reached #2 on the Billboard Top 200 in the US upon its release in 1969. 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. This is a 180-gram audiophile vinyl edition.
"For all its darkness, Green River is ultimately welcoming music, since the band rocks hard and bright and the melancholy feels comforting, not alienating." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
