CCR news

Ultimate Creedence Clearwater Revival: Greatest Hits & All-Time Classics - set for a Nov. 6 release on Fantasy (CCR's original label; now a division of Concord Music Group) - is a new three-CD set that covers the band’s recordings from the late ’60s through the early ’70s.

Included among the 52 tracks are the well known radio-friendly hits, classic album cuts, and a string of live recordings from performances in venues all over the U.S., U.K. and Europe. 

The huge hits are all here, spread across the first two discs: “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Fortunate Son,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Lookin’ Out My Back Door,” “Travelin’ Band,” “Down on the Corner,” and many more. But the collection also digs deeper and shines a light on timeless album material to provide a refreshing, alternate perspective on a relatively short career.

Live material gathered on the third disc includes shows in Oakland, San Francisco, London, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Berlin and elsewhere throughout 1970 and ’71.
