Creedence Clearwater Revival to release Live At Woodstock album

Creedence Clearwater Revival will release their performance at the original Woodstock festival as part of their ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations.

Due August 2, “Live At Woodstock” presents the band’s full 11-song, hour-long set at the legendary event, where they appeared after midnight on Saturday just two weeks following the arrival of their third album, “Green River.”

The live package features the group's biggest singles of the day as they were peaking on their way to becoming as one of the most successful outfits of the era, with a US Top 10 album and “Green River” set to become their first US No. 1.

“Creedence Clearwater Revival: Live at Woodstock” marks the first time their historic show has been released in full, as the band previously declined to be included in the 1970 documentary, “Woodstock”, and the film's soundtrack album.

Previewed with an audio stream of the set-opener “Born On The Bayou”, the project will be available in multiple formats, including CD, 2LP and digital (including hi-res 96/24).

In the four years they were together, CCR issued six Platinum albums and 14 Top 10 hits on their way to US sales of more than 30 million records before they disbanded in 1972.

CCR frontman John Fogerty is among the artists announced to perform at Woodstock 50 this summer, but the event’s status remains a question mark as news this week confirms that organizers are seeking a new site for the anniversary edition after Watkins Glen International terminated their contract to host the 3-day festival.
