The complete u.s. singles collection presented in their original mixes for the first time in over 40 years! Includes a bonus dvd of four creedence clearwater revival videos! Thirty tracks on two cds, each screened with a vintage fantasy record label. The cds are housed in a standard jewel case, together with a 20-page booklet that includes new liner notes by ben fong-torres.
The 2009 Singles Collection offers something that the many other previous Creedence Clearwater Revival compilations do not: the band's A-sides and B-sides presented complete and in chronological order, plus a DVD containing the five promo clips CCR released ("Sweet Hitch-Hiker," "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "Bootleg," "I Put a Spell on You," "Lookin' Out My Back Door"). This focus means there are songs here that never make most CCR hits collections -- the A-side "Porterville," but generally flips like "Call It Pretending," "Walk on the Water," "Door to Door," and "Tearin' Up the Country," plus the "45 Revolutions Per Minute" oddity -- but apart from that, this covers familiar, albeit still enjoyable, territory.~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
