CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL THE STUDIO ALBUMS COLLECTION
The definitive collection
Because Creedence aren’t quite part of the fabric of rock ’n’ roll culture for us in the same way they are for Americans, it’s easily to overlook just what a spectacular run they had. Their three LPs in 1969 alone were part of a two-year, six-record blaze of glory that saw John Fogerty hailed as one of the great American roots songwriters.
The many ups and few downs (1972’s Mardi Gras finally split the band) are captured here in definitive form – newly mastered at Abbey Road Studios at half-speed for maximum detail. The result is the best-sounding garage band of all time, further exposing the genius of economy in their swampy blues rock. Deceptively simple, Stu Cook’s power and use of fills was rooted in his keen ear on Fogerty’s guitar, with his upper body work. [RL]
