Creedence Clearwater Revival: Live At Woodstock

Read "Live At Woodstock" reviewed by Doug Collette

Creedence Clearwater Revival's appearance at the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair, shortly after midnight on August 16th 1969, wasn't so much a breakthrough as a consolidation of their burgeoning success to that point.

Various Artists: Confessin' The Blues

Read "Confessin' The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

If it weren't so scrupulously annotated (at least up to a point) or attractively designed, this title might be flippantly described as “The Greatest Hits of the Blues." As is, it is the third in a roots revival series of sorts. Confessin' The Blues follows Chicago Plays the Stones (Raisin' Music, 2018), where a Windy city ...

Creedence Clearwater Revival 10" EP for Record Store Day Looks Back to 1969

The year 1969 proved to be an epic one in the too-short history of Creedence Clearwater Revival. In that year alone, the band released three Top Ten albums, and had four hit singles and three charting B-sides.

Creedence Clearwater Revival 'Boxed' Set Features Six CDs & New Artwork

Even the most in-depth exploration of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Fantasy Records catalog wouldn’t necessarily reveal that they hailed from the Bay Area. Their glorious brand of stripped-down roots rock seemed to emanate straight from the murky swamps of Louisiana and smoky juke joints dotting the outskirts of Memphis, with a fierce musical attack that was raw ...
