As the kings of earnest country-inflected rock in an age when radical stances were de rigueur, CCR sported straight-ahead tunes, and may have seemed a bit unhip. But their music stands the test of time with a vengeance. For the doubtful listener, this outstanding, 20-track hits collection has evidence of their greatness in staggering abundance.Though they produced several excellent albums, Creedence was predominantly a singles band, and CHRONICLE compiles many of their biggest hits. From the slowly building saunter of "Suzie Q" and the spooky, R&B-soaked "I Put a Spell on You" to the fierce "Fortunate Son" and the swampy blues of "Run Through the Jungle," CHRONICLE features the ensemble's signature tunes. Beautifully melancholy songs "Who'll Stop the Rain" and "Someday Never Comes" play off sunny, melodic anthems "Down on the Corner" and "Lookin' Out My Back Door," fully revealing the band's wide range. The group's tight, no-frills musicianship leaves John Fogerty's keening voice and superb songwriting at the fore, and the results--brought together here on one of rock's best greatest-hits packages--make for some of the genre's most endearing and enduring music.

The music of CCR is a part of American legend, this cd is cut off from the old record and is a fine sample of true Americana when Rock and role had feeling and soul.<br>Although the cd I bought was used and had some skips, the music of this label is fantastic, buy new to enjoy without skips.<br>Sit back, role one and enjoy.

Very nice CD and worth the value I paid for it.
The quality and sound in very good . The last song on the CD skipped a few times but every other song was perfect. Any CCR fan will love these songs on this CD.

A "must have" for any CD collection:
I generally try for Greatest Hits or Best Of CD's when building my collection. Any fan of Creedence Clearwater Revival would love this CD as it is filled with hit after hit. CHRONICLE Volume 1 covers 20 of CCR's biggest hits including my favorites, "Fortunate Son" & "Who'll Stop The Rain". They're all here except for "Born On The Bayou", "The Midnight Special" & "Before You Accuse Me" where you would have to get CHRONICLE Vol.2 to really make this collection complete. John Fogerty wrote 17 of the songs on this CD and I feel that he deserves more recognition than he has received throughout his career. Creedence was mainly a singles band,so,instead of running out and getting several CD's/offerings - I strongly recommend getting CHRONICLE Vol.1 as it's one of the best "Greatest Hits" CD's out there.<br><br>Call it what you like, rockabilly with country and rhythm & blues influences but it's still rock & roll to me!!!<br><br>Paul Compton aka "Pacman35"Read full review
