Editors’ Notes

Where Chronicle Vol. 1 wields CCR’s original 19 hits, Vol. 2 cements their staying power with an excellent selection of hit- worthy album cuts. Why “Born On the Bayou” wasn’t initially chosen as a single (it was the B-Side to “Proud Mary”) remains a mystery. The song’s swampy twang is immediately fetching, with that opening guitar-picked hook, the mellow voodoo groove, and one of John Fogerty’s best vocal performances — not to mention, it convinced everyone that four guys from the Oakland suburbs of El Cerrito came from the gator-infested wetlands of Louisiana. And aside from the Little Richard staple, you won’t find a more rocking version of John Marascalo and Bumps Blackwell’s “Good Golly Miss Molly” than the one here. CCR’s gospel-rock take on the old traditional folk song “The Midnight Special” is so good that it inspired a great television musical variety show by the same name in 1973. ” If Vol.1 turned you on to CCR, the tastefully remastered Vol.2 will turn you into the kind of fan that looks for other epic CCR album gems like the strangely absent “Keep On Chooglin’.”

Customer Reviews


This is a great album with great hits, but if you want their "greatest" start with vol. 1 first.

Creedence "Deep Cuts"

Formed: 1967 in El Cerrito, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

At a time when rock was evolving 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 the music of CCR was very much a group effort 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...
