Creedence Clearwater Revival Essentials

Creedence Clearwater Revival was born in the same time and place as the psychedelic Summer of Love, but the Bay Area band set along a different path than their contemporaries. Fronted by John Fogerty, CCR's sound is a throwback to early American rock music. Their mainstream success helped usher in a new trend in “roots rock.” Casual fans surely assumed the group was from the South; they paid tribute to the bayou both instrumentally and lyrically. The band went out with the '60s; record label disputes and in-fighting led to their dissolution after their final album was released in 1972.
