Excellent 2008 compilation from one of the finest American bands of the late '60s and early '70s. With influences based in Blues, Folk and roots music, songwriter John Fogerty and the boys caught the attention of millions of listeners who wanted something simple and soul-stirring to forget the horrors of the Vietnam war and the tumultuous late '60s. This collection feature 24 of CCR's finest, all of them a Rock classic, including 'Bad Moon Rising', 'Proud Mary', 'Lodi', 'Have You Ever Seen The Rain?' and many others. Universal.

"24 track collection of CCR's best moments courtesy Universal Singapore. Though there is no credit re: remastering, the set is superbly remastered and rebalanced while the longer songs (I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Suzie Q) appear as single 45 rpm edits (which suits me fine anyway!). The songs are classic, the sound is remarkable. It's all on a single 2008 CD and the brief notes provide great info. What more could one ask for? Surely the time has come for Concord (who now owns Fantasy) to retire Chronicles Vol. 1 & 2 and Creedence Gold and provide fans with a proper, budget priced, superb sounding 2008 anthology (like WEA did with The Doors). Yes, the individual albums all appeared in remastered form at the end of the 90s and as great SACD hybrids in the early 2000s. Yet sadly, no newly remastered anthology is available here as of this late date. Until someone does that, this collection surely serves as "The Best" of CCR"
