Nice set, but the packaging does not “replicate the originals.”
Maybe its a “nit pick”, but none of the cool inserts etc is there, but the covers are good.

Richard

Great, but i wish to find a proper sounding cd set with “all” albums presented in a good sound quality.. most boxed cd releases are from poor masters … so my wish is release it on CD

Julian Hancock

Price seems a bit steep, given the Rod Stewart 5 album set looks set for under £70.

Steve Benson

Has any group been more re-released than CCR?

Well, there are supposedly at least 95 Who anthologies spread out around the world, but it wouldn’t shock me if Creedence were a close second. Seems like every year Fantasy (or whoever owns the catalog at this point) puts the same tracks out in a new configuration.

I take it that CCR was like the Doors in that there was very little unused material. Given the amount of records they both put out in the 60s/early-70s, it’s not surprising that there were never a huge bunch of unheard songs from either group
