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 an eponymous 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. Their final two albums were the adventurous Pendulum (1970) and Mardi Gras (1972).

The Ultimate Creedence Clearwater Revival collection, featuring 52 timeless tracks on three compact discs! Discs 1 and 2 feature a mix of 40 hits and classics, including 13 top ten hits such as "Bad Moon Rising," "Down On The Corner," "Looking Out My Back Door," "Proud Mary," and more. Disc 3 features 12 incendiary live performances of CCR classics. An absolute must for CCR fans and all fans of classic rock music.

"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....With the release of Bayou Country, Creedence became the most popular rock band in America...CCR's rough-hewn rockers often dealt with political and cultural issues, and the quartet appeared at the Woodstock Festival...Although Creedence's success continued after Cosmo's Factory, it was the group's artistic peak." - Rolling Stone

"At a time when rock was evolving further and further away from the forces that had made the music possible in the first place, Creedence Clearwater Revival brought things back to their roots with their concise synthesis of rockabilly, swamp pop, R&B, and country. Though CCR was very much a group in their tight, punchy arrangements, their vision was very much singer, songwriter, guitarist, and leader John Fogerty's. Fogerty's classic compositions for Creedence both evoked enduring images of Americana and reflected burning social issues of the day. The band's genius was their ability to accomplish this with the economic, primal power of a classic rockabilly ensemble." - Richie Unterberger,
