The legendary band Creedence Clearwater Revival will finally release after 50 years their Woodstock concert on August 2 and will include 11 songs that they played on Aug 11 of 1969. The hour-long show will be available on CD and as a digital download, as well as a two-LP vinyl set.
They just released Proud Mary live performance of that concert:
The band performed on Saturday night at the festival after Grateful Dead, but the show began too late due to Grateful’s extensive concert.
CCR refused to allow their set to appear in the hit 1970 movie or the No. 1 soundtrack. Three songs eventually appeared on 2009’s Woodstock 40 Years On: Back to Yasgur’s Farm box set: “Green River,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “I Put a Spell on You.”
Creedence Clearwater Revival (often referred to as Creedence or CCR) was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s which consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty; his brother rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty; bassist Stu Cook; and drummer Doug Clifford.
These members had played together since 1959, first as The Blue Velvets and later as The Golliwogs. Their musical style encompassed roots rock, swamp rock, and blues rock.
They played in a Southern rock style, despite their San Francisco Bay Area origin, with lyrics about bayous, catfish, the Mississippi River, and other popular elements of Southern United States iconography, as well as political and socially conscious lyrics about topics including the Vietnam War.
