They didn’t invent rock and roll, but no American band ever understood its essence and mastered its idioms and influences better than Creedence Clearwater Revival. A foursome that included exciting and forceful main songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist John Fogerty, second guitarist Tom Fogerty, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford forged an instantly identifiable sound that smoothly incorporated everything in the rock canon as if they created it. The six albums reissued under the 40th anniversary banner are spiced by the presence of several great bonus live tracks and alternate takes. Just load a multi-disc player with these six discs and enjoy a band that never worried about categories or trends, but simply wrote, sang and played magnificent rock and roll.
