John Fogerty performs Creedence Clearwater Revival classic Fortunate Son

John Fogerty and his family are streaming video of a quarantine jam performance of the 1969 Creedence Clearwater Revival classic, “Fortunate Son.”

Alongside “Down On The Corner”, “Fortunate Son” was issued as a double-sided single from the California band’s fourth album, “Willie And The Poor Boys”; the tune reached No. 3 on the US charts while the project went on to sell more than a million copies in the country.

Creedence Clearwater Revival will mark the 50th anniversary of their fifth album, “Cosmo’s Factory”, with a vinyl reissue on August 14.

Led by the platinum-selling singles “Who’ll Stop The Rain”, “Up Around The Bend” and “Looking Out My Back Door”, the project delivered the California band their second US No.1 album (the first was 1969’s “Green River”) and best-selling record, with more than 4 million sold in the US alone.

The 50th anniversary 180-gram vinyl reissue was mastered at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios, benefiting from an exacting process that allows for an exceptional level of sonic clarity and punch, while it comes housed in a tip-on jacket replicating the original pressing packaging.
