Great comp overall but where's Born On The Bayou? I would have left off Suzie Q or Sweet Hitch-Hiker for that one.

This album is part of my personal top 100 because I can't do this band the credit it deserves if I don't put a Greatest Hits in my top A00. You can check out my other top 100 albums (with additional comments) as well.
All the songs on this album are marvelous and are a fantastic blend of the superb voice of John Fogerty and some great guitar playing and song writing.
"I Put a Spell on You" is still one of the best version amongst the variety of versions around and also songs like "Up Around the Bend" and "Who'll Stop the Rain" are outstanding.

This is a great album! Sometimes compilations are deserving of the praise they receive. This is certainly one of them. Remember that 90% of the songs in this collection came out in the 3 year span between 68-70. That's an insane number of CLASSICS in a short period of time.

Long the standard CCR compilation, it features all the big hits. Not a weak track in the bunch, many are certified rock classics. The companion, Vol. 2, is loaded with fantastic album selections. There's still no substitute, although both volumes are in need of remastering.

Keep in mind that this is a greatest hits album, so it is stacked from top to bottom. There is absolutely no filler tracks here.

Surprised to see that Fortunate Son isn't a track pick. It's really captures the feeling of that time period

Stop complaining that it's "just a compilation." They are viable as introductions to people who are new to the music. Some bands just work better with singles either because they had no choice (Hank Williams, etc.) or because they never quite go the album down as well as the single (CCR). Should those artists not be recognized because the album format is "better" than a collection of singles? Bah!

Love this album. They don't exactly play my style so I'm glad there is such a great compilation available so I don't have to put up with fillers. This is probably all the CCR I'll ever need.
