Performance:   Sonics:
Finally, CCR that doesn't have that distorted treble sound. Who'd have thought CCR could sound warm? The separation in this stereo SACD is great. Another fantastic job of SACD mastering by Analogue Productions.

This was CCR's 4th album and has CCR's typical mix of relaxed pickin' songs, pop hits and raging fury. My favorite is "Effigy," most recently covered by the late great band Uncle Tupelo, which closes out this SACD at 6-1/2 minutes. There's something Fogerty does with his guitar string that sounds so foreign--"Who we burnin'...who we burnin'...[braaooong!]..in effigy"--that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. It never sounded this way on the redbook!

Again, who knew CCR could actually sound warm?

Performance:   Sonics:
This one's a real treat--big, punchy stereo sound with smooth treble. CCR made the jump to 16-track for this album, and you can really hear it in the drum sound, with the rack & floor toms panned across the soundstage. Like "Bayou Country" Stu Cook's bass sounds punchy and 'phat', with lots of low-end power that was not there on the RB CD version.

Song-wise, this is not quite as strong as Cosmos Factory, but it runs it pretty close. Even if you think you'Ve heard enough Creedence on 'classic Rock FM' stations in North America, I still can recommend this SACD because you'll hear lots of nice details that did not come through on LP and CD.

Lovely warm and smooth sound! This is a joy to listen to and has a great track list. Ditch your old cd and buy this before its gone.

Sonics:
Flat, dull & lifeless even on the best equipment. This applies to all the CCR SACD's.
