This has got 6 disks, contained is a special Creedence box. It comes with a colour booklet with press clippings, biog and loads of images.

3.0 out of 5 stars As advertised
When I bought this item it was described as case damaged, it was but not real problem.

The CD's in the the box were untouched and played without any problems.

The packaging was of good quality and up to the job.

Definately recommended for any music fan

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent box for an excellent band, 22 July 2004
Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR for short) is recognized as one of America's greatest southern rock bands of all time, and why not? Their music rules! John Fogerty and the boys were some of the world's finest musicians, and although their days as the band were short, during those years they shelled out some of the finest songs in rock and roll history. And now the band has compiled a box set of their recordings! Read on for my review of this package.
PROS:
-There are two ways you can do a box set: The good way (a definitive collection of every recording you have ever done) and the bad way (a scattershot mixture of tracks.), and the Creedence Clearwater Revival box set does it the GOOD way! You get all of the band's studio albums in this collection: Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willie And The Poor Boys, Cosmo's Factory, and the band's live album.
-The compilation features live material previously unreleased on compact disc.
-The first disc of the compilation is nothing but previously unreleased Pre-Creedence rarities! This stuff is the icing on the cake.
-The box includes a handy booket with a ton of useful and interesting liner notes.
-Buying this set is a better value than buying all of the band's material separately. And besides, some material in this set isn't available anywhere else!
-The band really tried to save space with this set. When they could fit more than one album onto a single compact disc, they did so. Smart thinking.
CONS:
-Although Amazon's photograph may have convinced you otherwise, this box isn't actually made out of wood. Sorry.
-There are noticable sound flaws in some of the recordings featured here. Nothing major, but still a flaw worth mentioning.
-Although this is probably common knowledge, the following material is NOT included in this set: Creedence Clearwater Revisited material, John Fogerty solo material, and any other post-Creedence stuff that members of the band may have done over the years.
-The Pre-Creedence material may disappoint some people. In other words, if you already own every Creedence album, it's not worth buying the box set just to get the rare stuff.
OVERALL:
Overall, despite minor flaws, this is an excellent compilation for one of America's greatest rock and roll bands. If you're a classic rock fan, don't bother with hits compilations - be a man and shell out the cash for this set. It's a set worthy in the collection of every fan of classic rock.

Creedence are just as good today as they've always been - classic songs that never age. Have owned this for a while now and it hasn't been out of the CD Player since I bought it.
Nowhere else offers ALL the bands songs in one place. Buy it now!

Been a fan of Creedence for years. Saw this CD collection and had to buy it. I am very pleased with it, Some of the early stuff sounds a bit "tinny" but what do expect from something recorded in 1950's when sounds on records were not as good as today. All in all a very good collection from this brilliant band
