"Creedence Clearwater Revival"

The Greatest Aspect Of A Greatest Hits Album Is A Novice Creedence Clearwater Revival Listener Can Really Dive In On Unknown Classics

It was hight time that I gave one of the most famous Hard Rock bands ever my proper attention – as I have been told just about my whole life how great and instrumental this band was in popularizing the Country Folk sound in Rock – especially taking over the music scene in the late nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies. I grew up a lot in the Bay Area, but couldn’t really understand at the time why famous bands from the Bay Area such as Creedence Clearwater Revival should sound so Southern when that wasn’t where they were from. I guess when I was first hipped to them, I thought, along with The Grateful Dead, that is really wasn’t my sound at all. It seemed that much of the Haight and Ashbury type sound was steeped in southern tradition - true, the band CCR loved this twangy sound, and had long incorporated it into their style and lyrics – so much so that I’m sure I wasn’t the only one confused about their origins, because they sure do sound like they are from the Deep South, especially with a hit like “Proud Mary.” I mean, just listen to how the lyrics are sung – his accent sounds like a real Louisiana one – as he sings “big wheel keep on turnin' / proud Mary keep on burnin' / rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.” Lead singer and songwriter John Fogerty doesn’t pronounce it ‘burnin’’, but rather, ‘boinin’’, like he is jamming with the band somewhere in the bayou. This was all Swamp Rock and Blues Rock, but not without its Soul, which I now no Ike Turner and Tina Turner picked up on – and to that end, I feel lots of folks think this was a Tina Turner song originally, not Creedence Clearwater Revival. Therefore, even the songs I thought I knew by CCR, I truly didn’t, and there would be many more like this on Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits.

About

Creedence Clearwater Revival (often referred to as Creedence or CCR) was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s which consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty; his brother rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty; bassist Stu Cook; and drummer Doug Clifford. These members had played together since 1959, first as The Blue Velvets, and later as The Golliwogs. Their musical style encompassed roots rock, swamp rock, and blues rock. They played in a Southern rock style, despite their San Francisco Bay Area origin, with lyrics about bayous, catfish, the Mississippi River, and other popular elements of Southern United States iconography, as well as political and socially conscious lyrics about topics including the Vietnam War. The band performed at the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Upstate New York.
