Trailer
https://youtu.be/Y14px43fICc

Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 50th anniversary box set will be released on Nov. 30, and you can watch the exclusive premiere of the trailer announcement right now.

The clip follows the launch of the band’s first-ever video in June.


The set includes all seven of the band’s studio albums in 180g vinyl format: Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willy and the Poor Boys, Cosmo’s Factory, Pendulum and Mardi Gras. Each album was remastered at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios, resulting in “an exceptional level of sonic clarity and punch,” according to the press release announcing the set.

Although the band members were together for only four years under the Creedence Clearwater Revival appellation, they managed to accomplish more than many artists do in a lifetime,” the release continued. “Powered by John Fogerty’s visceral growl, along with Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford’s gritty, in-the-pocket punch, they’ve sold over 30 million records in the U.S. alone, releasing 14 Top 10 hits, six platinum albums and one gold album. They also managed to play over 150 tour dates around the world, including a headlining spot at Woodstock.”

The statement noted that “with so many memorable songs that continue to grace our radio waves and television and movie screens, plus lyrics that still resonate today, Creedence Clearwater Revival is, truly, America’s greatest rock ’n’ roll band. This lovingly remastered and restored Complete Studio Albums (Half-Speed Masters) box set represents a package worthy of the Creedence legacy, marking 50 years since the Fogertys, Clifford and Cook brought us a body of work that has inspired and electrified generations of fans.”

The Studio Albums box set is available for pre-order now.

Doesn't surprise me at all. Their music is so "simple"...as a big fan of the ABB, I don't quite understand how fans who appreciate the improvisational skill sets of players like Duane, Dickey, Derek, Chuck & Gregg, can turn around and be entertained by a band that sounds like a group of 13 year olds who've been playing their instruments for 7 months. Sure there is a "good" song to be found here and there, but me? I just don't get it, not at all. What's the old joke?...A guy who is headed to the Airport for an emergency staff meeting in another city, all of a sudden remembers he has two tickets to see CCR in his wallet and not wanting to see them go to waste he places them under a windshield wiper of a car in the parking at the Airport, hoping they will be used..... Upon his return he happens to walk by that same car which is still there only to find there are now a total of six tickets to the same show under the same set of wipers.

The Beatles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and countless other great rock bands also didn't improvise live, are you going to sh!t on them too? CCR and John Fogerty certainly did stretch out on certain tunes. John wrote great timeless songs, he's a great guitar player/musician/arranger who just got better as time went on.

My point was.."Tell me you think the guys in CCR were top notch musicians"? Ed, Gary, Billy and Allen as well as Paul & George would walk circles around CCR musically.

I do not think they were, that is my only point, call it what you will

They served the songs. they played what John wanted them to play, and they had loads of hits because of it.

That worked for them. Excellent. It's a forum, my comment was directed towards my lack of appreciation for their skill set, I offer no apology for your thinking that was "sh**ing on them".

Enjoy the day.

It's what you like and pleasing to your ears. You don't have to hit every note on the fret board to have a great song .That has been proved countless of times. I like the intrical playing of Les Bres In A Minor just as equally as the bare bones bashing of Walk All Over You by ACDC. Neither are better, just different forms of great RNR.

I have been playing guitar for a little over thirty years now. I appreciate a good many forms of music and try and let little nuances from each into my technique. I am not great by any means, just solid.

I have read a few things over the years by three guitar players I try to remember ,or use as a mantra,when I am playing or penning a new tune.

These may not be verbatim or an exact quote, since it is coming from memory.

John Fogerty- He was talking about writing music and coming up with catchy riffs and how he would incorporate that into a song.He felt that was important...and of course the proof is in the pudding.

Joe Satriani- He talked about that his playing was very technical,as we all know . He said he just chose to play that way because it fit for him. He also went on to state that some of the simplest licks or riffs are just as good and equally significant compared to what he does. It's all about self expression.

Malcolm Young -I read an article about 20 plus years ago where he discussed where some newer bands and guitarist don't play with any swing and let the music breath.

I think I will listen to some Charlie Christian followed by some Hooker .
