A three-CD set capturing highlights from Creedence Clearwater Revival's relatively short but impressively prolific career is due out on November 6. The 52-track Ultimate Creedence Clearwater Revival: Greatest Hits & All-Time Classics boasts the Rock and Roll of Famers' best-known songs and a variety of notable album cuts, as well as a selection of live performances culled from a number of concerts by the band.
The studio recordings are included on the collection's first two CDs, while the third disc contains the live material, which was culled from shows that frontman John Fogerty and his group played in the U.S., the U.K. and Europe during 1970 and '71.
Author Alec Palao, whose penned the liner notes for the album, writes of the group, "If any one act could legitimately stake a claim to be America's Beatles, then that would Creedence Clearwater Revival...Their litany of hits transcends time and place to form an ever-present, constant soundtrack to life in these here United States."
