    Creedence Clearwater Revival Covers the Classics Notes

    Creedence Clearwater Revival built up a vast arsenal of covers during their lengthy apprenticeship in the local Bay Area music scene (as Tommy Fogerty & the Blue Velvets, and then later as The Golliwogs) by the time they emerged on the national stage in 1968.



    This collection brings together for the very first time their classic covers.

    01. Good Golly Miss Molly - A worthy heir to the patented "Little Richard scream"; John Fogerty's vocals cut right through and leave no prisoners.
    02. I Heard It Through the Grapevine (single edit) - This rare edit is making its U.S. CD debut on this collection.
    03. Hello Mary Lou - ...foreshadowed the "roots music" direction that would dominate much of rock music for the rest of the decade.
    04. Susie Q (single edit) - Often mistaken for a CCR original, Susie Q, is the cover most closely associated with the band.
    05. The Midnight Special - became an immediate CCR classic and a live staple for John to this day.
    06. Ooby Dooby - CCR's rendition of this jukebox classic appeared on 1970's Cosmo's Factory.
    07. The Night Time Is The Right Time - A rollickin' call-and-response gospel-infused side made famous by The Genius of Soul, Ray Charles.
    08. Cotton Fields - John Fogerty's layered harmony vocals give an added poignancy to Leadbelly's lyrics.
    09. Ninety-Nine and a Half - Fogerty's urgent vocals add to the energy, proving the band could hold their own against the best Memphis had to offer.
    10. Before You Accuse Me - The band saw fit to pay homage to rock ‘n roll's original innovator by performing this Bo Diddley classic.
    11. My Baby Left Me - The straight ahead cover of the 1957 Presley classic.
    12. I Put a Spell on You - The lead-off cut from CCR's debut. Just as guttural as Screamin' Jay Hawkins 1957 original and twice as primal. Another cover they would forever make their own, it is rock 'n' roll in its purest and best form.
