Creedence Clearwater Revival Box Set

It is only when you look at the track listing of this expanded 6 disk box set that you realise how many great songs Creedence recorded – (and how many of them I have played – and am still playing – in various bands I’ve been in). The set marks the legendary band’s 40th anniversary. The albums — Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willy & the Poor Boys, Cosmo’s Factory and Pendulum, all originally released from 1968-70 —have been digitally remastered and contain an array of rarities: B-sides, unreleased studio and live material.

John Fogerty is a great songwriter and his voice suits the songs perfectly – there was always great playing, too, with lots of blues and swamp influences, to my ears. I’d love to find this boxset in my Christmas stocking!

There’s some streams here (Fortunate Son – live), here (I Put A Spell On You) and here (Travellin’ Band) as well as video here here and here.
