To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My copy is reasonable flat with no marks or blemishes on the vinyl. 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
I’ve always really loved CCR. I’ve had the Chronicles albums in my collection for years, those albums are a great starting place for discovering this great bands music. However, I recently heard Cosmo’s Factory complete for the very first time, and I wanted to discover more. I came on Amazon and Immediately purchased 4 of the bands Back catalogue albums, one of those was of course Green River,
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 a review for the remastered vinyl version of this release, i'm sure i really do not need to review the fine music on this classic album. 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.
My favourite band of all time! I still listen to all their albums regularly, even though I still don't know half the mumbled lyrics! I thought I'd upgrade, as the CDs were so cheap! This remastered album, with the bonus tracks, is absolutely superb! Great sound quality and interesting, memory jogging information in the accompanying booklet. A must for all CCR fans...
creedence are one of the great bands of our time ,in 1969 they issued three albums...fantasy are releasing these albums on vinyl , green river bayou country and later this year willy and the poor boys...what can I say just some of the greatest music ever....,written by the legendary john fogerty backed up by brother tom fogerty,stu cook and doug Clifford. ....just timeless....
