CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL - LIVE AT WOODSTOCK[LTD ED]
This album represents the long sought-after release of Creedence Clearwater Revival's legendary
Woodstock performance in its entirety. CCR were one of the few bands to appear at Woodstock, who had
already achieved notable chart success. However, for many their appearance flew under the radar - largely
in part to the band not appearing in the movie or the soundtrack which were released post-festival.
Their hour-long set took place shortly after midnight on 17 August 1969, a later than planned start due to
the Grateful Dead's set over-running. Kicking off with “Born on the Bayou,” the album features the band's
biggest singles of the day, plus selections off their first three LPs, including “Commotion,” “Ninety-Nine
and a Half (Won't Do)” and “Bootleg.” Full of creative energy, John, Tom, Stu, and Doug delve deep into
their music, playing extended improvisations of “I Put a Spell on You,” “Keep on Chooglin'” and “Suzie Q.”
As John Fogerty later recalled, “By the time we got to Woodstock, I felt we were the number one band.
Assuming that The Beatles were God, I thought that we were the next thing under them.”
