50th anniversary pressing of iconic studio album from America’s greatest rock and roll band; first released in 1970 at the peak of Creedence’s prolific career.

Includes the hits “Who’ll Stop The Rain,” “Run Though the Jungle,” “Up Around The Bend,” “Looking Out My Back Door” and more, plus a cover of “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.”

The album was mastered at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios, benefiting from an exacting process that allows for an exceptional level of sonic clarity and punch. This 180-gram vinyl comes housed in a tip-on jacket replicating the original pressing packaging.

Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 1968 self-titled debut album introduced the world to guitar-playing brothers John and Tom Fogerty, drummer Doug Clifford, and bassist Stu Cook, four young men out of El Cerrito in the San Francisco Bay Area. Though they emerged in a place and time where trippy psychedelic visions were the order of the day, CCR bucked the trends and instead tapped into a rich, traditional seam of American music that connected to blues, country, rockabilly, gospel, folk and R&B.

During their short time together as a band (1968 – 1972), Creedence enjoyed an unparalleled period of creativity – releasing seven studio albums (two of which went to Number One), playing over 150 tour dates around the world, including a headlining spot at Woodstock, and scoring 14 Top Ten singles.

CCR’s music endures today, 50 years later– in the last two years alone, their music has appeared in some of the most popular films (The Post, War Dogs, Suicide Squad), TV shows (The Voice, The Strain, Good Girls Revolt) and video games (Mafia III, Watch Dogs II, Crackdown 2), allowing a new generation of fans to discover songs like “Fortunate Son,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” Creedence songs have received over 9.4 million tags on  Shazam  to-date. Having sold over 30 million albums in the U.S. alone, Creedence received a rare Diamond certification from the RIAA in 2016, marking 10 million units in sales for their 1976 compilation album, Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits.
