R&SRNR_167 – “THE COMPLETE HIT SINGLES HISTORY OF CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL”
a staple of radio, satellite, and Internet channels to this very day. Their southern swamp-rock sound belied their San Francisco-area origin. Their show business fantasies became a reality when they signed on with Fantasy – a jazz-focused independent label that didn’t rock. But that little company rocked out during this band’s peak years when this group’s records outsold their idols and contemporaries – the Beatles.
You obviously know we’re talking about Creedence Clearwater Revival. We’ll trace their history beginning with their numerous recordings under other names for almost a decade until they finally found success. Then we’ll sample all of their hit singles, along with the original versions of those songs by other artists who inspired them. Plus, some hit remakes by performers who found solid gold with Credence Clearwater Revival originals.
Our resident Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, has lots of fun factoids for you. He’ll join Radio Dave as together we present more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Hear it all here.
