Having previously mislaid my copies of Chronicles 1 & 2, spotted this today and thought it would be an ideal replacement.

On the plus side, the tracks have been remastered since the above compilations were released and they have never sounded better,
taking 18 of the 20 tracks from Volume 1 (ignoring "Commotion" and "Someday Never Knows"), and 6 of the best from Volume 2.

Great to have this huge 24 track selection on one disc, but in order to squeeze them all on, the 11 minute guitar workout on "I Heard It Through The Grapevine"
has been sacrificed, and replaced instead with a 4 minute edit. (Still have the original on mp3 anyway!)

I may have a dodgy pressing but having already exchanged it twice, beware there is a huge hiss at the end of "The Midnight Special" (4m 12s on Track 23 to be exact),
which almost deafened me the first time when played through headphones! Five Stars for the music itself though, the tracks seem to pick themselves so if you like CCR,
you'll already know what you're getting. The sound is great, but 1 star for what I can only hope is a dodgy pressing which hopefully will rectified.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Midnight Special. 23 Dec 2008
By Flickering Ember TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download
I bought this album for a general overview of CCR, having heard and loved The Midnight Special, Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary and a few other tracks. I do not have a comprehensive enough knowledge of CCR to comment on whether or not there are any glaring omissions from this album, but I will say that I loved every track and at around 6 for 24 tracks, it's certainly great value for money.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I have had no problems with playing this CD. This is a great introduction to, and overview of, CCR and their music. The covers of I Put A Spell On You and I Heard It Through The Grapevine make it even more interesting to listen to. Thoroughly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purely belter 15 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
It's rare that you get 24 tracks on one CD and never press 'skip' once!

This compilation of Classic Credence is absolute class. Any fans of Swamp Rock will eat this up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Round Up of CCR's Best Work 4 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having been born in the late 80's I have no first hand experience of this band. The first song I heard by them was 'Fortunate Son' thanks to the film Forrest Gump. I thought wow now that is the sort of voice and rock n roll urgency I like. So I decided to explore the band further and this seemed a sensible place to start. First off I enjoy their unique sound and songwriting, no one else really sounds like CCR. Secondly, I loved every song on the album, they are catchy tunes that grow on you and after a few spins you seem to know all the words like you've always been a fan. I would recommend this to fans of late 60s and early 70s Americana and Rock. 5 Stars as I can't stop listening to this band!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection 23 July 2011
By Davidf
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After hearing Creedence clearwater revival on radio 2 at various times, I thought I would take the plunge and purchase this best of.
You get the ubiquitous Bad moon rising along with their other well known tracks, Proud Mary, Have you ever seen the rain and Up around the bend. But it was the lesser known stuff (well for me at least) that I was interested to hear.
I must say that I was not disappointed, if you like the better known tracks you will like the rest of this cd.
Some people may take me to task for saying this, but I find the songs to be in a similar style to Lynrd Skynrd, so if you like them, you will like this and vice versa.
Buy this and enjoy a band who should have lasted longer than they did.

There's so many on this album that I still haven't really heard them all properly! As my car journey's are'nt long enough to hear them all! I mainly wanted an album which had 'Lodi'on it but there's plenty other golden CCR songs on this album....Buy It!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't get better than this... 28 April 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been intending on adding some CCR to my library for some time now...every now and again you'll hear one of their tracks, mainly via movie soundtracks, and find yourself thinking 'Dag nam it I need to get me some Creedence!' Well finally I grabbed this Best of CCR album and I can tell you its the bees knees. Every track is a winner and the order in which they are played has been given careful consideration. The earlier 2 volumes (of the CCR best of's) available tended to have a few not-so-good tracks on it, but this brings all the gems together in one glorious album. Top sound quality, I can't recommend enough.
