Ccr - 1969 Singles (Vinyl)
Digitally remastered and containing rare previously unreleased bonus material. Green River is the third album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1969. In 2003, the album was ranked number 95 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Songwriter John Fogerty wrote the song, 'Lodi' about being trapped in a town called Lodi which is a town in California about 75 miles from Fogerty's hometown of El Cerrito, Contra Costa County. The year 2008 marks the 40th anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival. The album is packaged in a beautiful digi-pak, faithfully recreating the original album packages in meticulous detail and the CD reissue contains expanded liner notes.
Remarkably, this is the third studio album Creedence Clearwater Revival released in 1969! During that stunning burst, John Fogerty could do no wrong. Green River isn't as chock-full of CCR standards as the record that followed it in 1970 (Cosmo's Factory), and, at 30 minutes, it's briefer than its rather brief predecessor (Willy and the Poorboys). Still, this is economy at its best. The title track, "Lodi," and "Bad Moon Rising" are all indelibly etched into the memory banks of classic-rock fans, while "Commotion" and "Cross-Tie Walker" are perfect swamp-rock complements. "The Night Time Is the Right Time" is one more in a series of spot-on Fogerty covers. And "Wrote a Song for Everyone" manages to be both rarefied and down to earth in the same breath--which is really CCR in a nutshell. --Steven Stolder
