Title: What's the best Creedence album?
Post by: oldcore on June 17, 2016, 09:26:06 AM
I was wondering what Creedence album I should check out?  I have Chronicle I & II, but I was wondering if there are any album cuts that are really great.  Any suggestions?

Is Ramble Tamble a deep cut?  I dunno, but if it is, Cosmo's Factory merits a listen.  Pretty sure 90% of the tracks on it are well-known singles though.  I also like Pendulum which I guess is a little more obscure.  Honestly, I would listen to everything from the self-titled record through Pendulum, which isn't too daunting a task.

pretty much all of it! Cosmo's Factory is probably the best, but there's not much separating them.

Other must listens: Bayou Country, Green River, Willy & The Poor Boys (Elegy is fantastic... minor key epic. similar feel as Ramble Tamble's amazing breakdown)

Oh god they're so good...

I listen to Cosmo's Factory the most but over the last year or so I've really dug into Green River for that sweet slow pan on the long guitar bends in "Sinister Purpose". What a cool simple production trick. Ok, go to sleep again Creedence thread.

Greatest Hits. The TV one. Not really.

Saul Zaentz presents Creedence Minus One?

Has any human being ever hated any other human being more than John Fogerty hated Saul Zaentz?
