The 11 Best Creedence Clearwater Revival Songs (that you've never heard of):

What most people know about CCR is what they've learned while watching Vietnam movies. But in 3 short years, this true piece of Americana defined the country rock genre for the next 40 years. Everyone from Ryan Adams to Wilco to the Kings of Leon and even U2 owe a little debt to John Fogerty and Company. This week, all of CCR's albums are being re-released as 40th anniversary editions...all featuring live tracks and demos. But the add-ons are almost throw-aways...the best aspect of these albums is the sonic upgrade. The remastering of the tracks is outstanding, giving these already slam dunk rockers an added kick in the pants. Listening to these new versions is like watching Usain Bolt run a marathon with a pair of rocket shoes. They didn't need it...but now that they have it...there's not stopping them from kicking some serious ass.
