Their glorious brand of stripped-down roots rock seemed to emanate straight from the murky swamps of Louisiana and smoky juke joints dotting the outskirts of Memphis, with a fierce musical attack that was raw and primal.

Their seminal albums for Fantasy Records (six platinum, the other gold) are loaded with timeless hits. Set for reissue on November 11, Creedence Clearwater Revival: Boxed Set contains everything the rockers cut in the studio for Fantasy from 1967 to 1972 their seven studio albums (Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willy and the Poor Boys, Cosmo s Factory, Pendulum, and Mardi Gras) packed with smashes ( Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising, Down on the Corner, Fortunate Son, Green River, Travelin Band, Up Around the Bend, Lookin Out My Back Door ).
