Creedence Clearwater Revival share 1970 Royal Albert Hall performance of Bad Moon Rising

Creedence Clearwater Revival are sharing video of a 1970 performance of “Bad Moon Rising”, from their recently-released package, “Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall”

The April 14 event saw CCR deliver hit after hit from three studio albums issued in less than a year: “Bayou Country”, “Green River” and “Willie And The Poor Boys”, and their self-titled 1968 debut.

When CCR took the stage at the iconic UK venue, the band members had reached the height of their international stardom and arrived ready to prove themselves as equals to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles, who had announced their breakup just days before.

Their performance – which included hits like “Born On The Bayou,” “Proud Mary,” and "Fortunate Son" – was met with a 15-minute standing ovation and rave next-day reviews in the UK’s top publications.

More than 50 years after that legendary show, the original multitrack tapes have been meticulously restored and mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell.

The live recording was released simultaneously alongside the documentary concert feature film, “Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall”, which delivers the only concert footage of the original CCR lineup to be released in its entirety.

On November 14, both the album and the film will be presented in a Super Deluxe Edition Box Set, available exclusively via
