- Customer Reviews:
The newly reissued vinyl edition of the third album by one of the world's all-time greatest rock bands, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Green River remains a top-selling album in the CCR catalog. The album contains the ubiquitous international chart-topping hit, 'Bad Moon Rising' which reached #2 in the Billboard top 200 in the US and #1 in the UK upon its release in 1969 and continues to be a mainstay on classic rock radio. A 'must-have' for any serious classic rock fan, Green River represents both a true high point in songwriting creativity and the point at which the band's classic sound fully bloomed into the CCR that fans recognize and love today.

Top review from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It lacks warmth, bass and dynamics though and at some stages sounds harsh.
Reasonably good instrument separation but the lead guitar does sound like it is out on it's own and is too loud in the mix.
This copy may be cut from the same stampers as the Analogue Productions 200g copies although I can't see anything to confirm this.
Nothing included with the album and (cheap and thin) inner sleeve. No lyrics or credits.
Overall it's good value for money but could be better

Green River is the second of three albums released in 1969. The original album, much like the other albums was produced by John Fogerty himself. The nine song track list continues to feature one of the most recognisable sounds in music history with a number of rock favourites. Here you find songs like the title track, Commotion, Tombstone Shadow, Bad Moon Rising, Lodi and The Night Time Is The Right Time. The album sits just short of thirty minutes long and is about as perfect as a rock album can be. Something that Creedence Clearwater Revival was very good at the time.
I am having a hard job trying to find something bad to say about this album. The fact it's so short is about as far as I can go. But with the added bonus tracks, Broken Spoke Shuffle and Glory Be, Green River easily corrects that issue and I then have nothing to complain about. I adore the sound the album has, I love every song and think it's one of the finest albums out there. The remastering is fantastic and considerably better than the high treble copy I had before.
I'm not being a fan boy when I say that this is a must buy for any rock fan. It's a simple truth. The band released six great albums and this is bang smack in the middle of that impressive run. You owe it yourself to pick it up.
This album was one of 3 that CCR recorded and released in 1969, they were certainly working hard, and it has already becoming one of my favourites. Notable songs on this album - Green River, Commotion, Bad Moon Rising And it’s B Side - Lodi,
A great selection to begin with, but then we get the brilliant country flavours of Cross Tie Walker & Tombstone Shadow. Also included here is a brilliant Ballard, perfectly sung by John Fogerty - Wrote A Song For Everyone, The album rounds off with some extra bonus tracks,
Green River is a really solid album and I’m absolutely loving discovering this great bands work in more detail!,
This is now the third vinyl i have bought in this series and once more i am very happy with it, the vinyl itself is the quietest running of the three.
The cover is of a good quality and the vinyl is housed in a plain white inner, not antistatic, something that really shouldn't be a problem to fix, just a little more thought by the manufacturer and a much better overall product can be achieved.
The sound quality is lacking a little compared to cosmos and pendulum but i'm not really making a fuss.
Good quality item.
