Chronicle: 20 Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Chronicle, Vol. 1 contains every one of Creedence Clearwater Revival's original 19 hit singles -- including "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Green River," "Down on the Corner," "Travelin' Band," "Up Around the Band," and "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" -- plus "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," which became a hit at the same time this double-record compilation was released.

Several of the band's individual albums are essential, but Chronicle is not only an excellent introduction to the group, it offers definitive proof that the group was one of the definitive singles' bands of the late '60s. Rarely has a greatest- hits collection been so well-assembled. [The compact disc edition is hampered by the inclusion of the full-length, 11-minute album version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine"; its presence slows down the momentum of the collection considerably.]

    CCR Rocks

    CCR is one of my favorite bands, and their music is timeless after over 30 years. Everytime I hear "Fortunate Son", I think about George W., and wonder if he uses the song at campaign rallies. I would suspect not!

    Creedence is my favorite Classic Rock Band. They have a wonderful unique sound and are ''all American''. This cd has a wide variety of songs from Bad Moon Rising,Proud Mary to Fortunate Son. Anyone who loves Classic Rock must purchase this cd, it is a must!!!

    It doesn't get any better than this.

    Not only is CCR one of the greatest singles bands in history (making this compilation coherant), but a full sampling of 20 tracks gives a complete overview of the band's career. I won't bother listing the highlights because there are too many; all the songs here are classics. Some people compain about the 11-minute rendition of ''I Heard It Through the Grapevine'' because they claim it slows down the album, but the song demonstrates that CCR was a viable instrumental unit, and not just John Fogerty's backup band.

    Excellent

    Any classic rock or Creedence fan should buy this. It starts off strong, and stays strong till the end.
