Review: Creedence Clearwater Revival 40th Anniversary Edition Reissues (October 16, 2008 Fantasy Records/Concord Music)
Concord/Fantasy Records recently reissued Creedence Clearwater Revival's six major albums made between 1968 and 1970. The classic gems that were produced over an amazing three-year period have all been digitally remastered, and contain added tracks of B-sides and previously unreleased live and studio material, including a couple of 1970 Fantasy studio recordings with Booker T and the MGs.
Creedence must be at or near the top of classic rock bands with almost as many greatest hits compilations as greatest hit songs. However, if you haven’t already picked up their 2001 box set, it’s good to have copies of all the major albums inside their particular sleeves, cover art and all, especially since all six contain remastered music and unreleased songs. For CCR fanatics, this is an excellent batch of reissues.
I bought from 1968 - 170 the vinyl, ~ 1982 the original CD issues, in the 90' some remastered CDs, and then 2001 the complete box set. Now yet another version with bonus tracks ...
