Best of Creedence Clearwater Revival

This 2008 best-of from Universal collects 24 tracks from the seminal '60s folk/blues/country-rock legends on a single disc. While the package may offer little in the way of liner notes and other bonus material, it's as good a single-disc retrospective as one could hope for, balancing all of the radio hits that made 1976's Chronicle, Vol. 1 and 1986's Chronicle, Vol. 2 the gold standard for most listeners. The sound is exquisite, and while some of the band's beloved deep cuts like "Pagan Baby" and "Epitaph" are nowhere to be found, it's the most comprehensive "hits" collection out there (to date). The only downside (depending on one's preferences) is the appearance of the single 45-rpm edits of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and "Suzie Q," but the brevity works in context with the rest of the set, which includes enough classic rock staples like "Have You Ever Seen the Rain," "Long as I Can See the Light," "Up and Around the Bend," "Lookin' Out My Back Door," and "Born on the Bayou" to fuel a billion nasty commutes.
Fantastic best of compilation !!!!
I was first introduced to CCR after listening to Down on the Corner and thinking "What the hell is this funky stuff?" Since then ive checked out the rest as i already have the best of and its a top class example of 60,s funky rock which will get those toes tapping and heads bobbing. Spend some time to check out each track guys. Brilliant.
Start with Chronicle
Great band, great tracks, but why edit the superb rock jam session that is CCR's version of "Heard It Through The Grapevine"? Sacrilege! Go buy Chronicle and then grab the half-dozen tracks from this album that don't appear on that.
American music at its best
I often thought best voices in rock were plant,daltery , and Paul Rodgers ,but alas this guy from C.C.R is up there John fogarty I salute sir .top songs for me are long as I see the light,have you ever seen the rain, and I defy anybody. Not to tap their fingers to lodel .my god what a band as popular music progresses. Forward to sometimes a good way ,I would be wrong to fall into the trap that modern music is crap ,it isn't just as long as you know where to look it is there .but there is something about music that exites me you have to look at the past to go forward ,and to me the past is cool.
