Fantasy Records will commemorate an epic year for Creedence Clearwater Revival by releasing a limited edition 10-inch vinyl disc titled The ’69 Singles for Record Store Day on Saturday, April 19th.
In 1969 alone, the band released three Top Ten albums, and had four hit singles and three charting B-sides. The band also played Woodstock, performed on The Ed Sullivan Show twice and toured throughout North America.
Commemorating the 45th anniversary of this banner year, Fantasy Records launched its Creedence Clearwater Revival 1969 initiative with vinyl re-issues timed to coincide with their original release dates: “Bayou Country” was released on January 14th, “Green River” on August 5th and “Willy and the Poor Boys” on November 4th.
Featured are eight chart-topping hits: “Proud Mary,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Lodi,” “Green River,” “Commotion” (the B-side of “Green River”), “Down on the Corner” and “Fortunate Son.”
Also coming in 2014 for CCR fans are a new Greatest Hits package and High Resolution Audio releases.
