5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive compilation after so many others, but dodgy pressing?, 3 Jun. 2008
This review is from: The Best Of Creedence Clearwater Revival (Audio CD)
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.

Wonder why Commotion was omitted? It is a very good track. I have Chronicle 1 and 2, and Born on the Bayou should have been on Disc 1, so it's nice to see it hear on this one disc. Also, I think you meant 'Someday Never Comes', not 'Someday Never Knows'? :)
