Perhaps the finest interpretation of what some would say is the Great American Rock-N-Roll songbook!

So...Creedence Clearwater Revival has been gone for what, over forty years? The life expectancy of most bands is probably less than 6 years of what some of us refer to as critical i.e. commercial success. Creedence is indeed the band that will not die. Countless collections and retrospectives on their all too limited discography have been offered up. Most are horrible.
A Blues Tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival is perhaps the finest "tribute" release to have surfaced with stellar performances from Sonny Landreth, Leroux, and Duke Robillard among others. The true blues infused swamp sound of this legendary American institution is embraced with that same raw edge that took America by storm in 1969.
This is a no-brainer.
