I was 16 in ‘72 and got to see CCR at Randwick. My good mate at school and soccer, Dave Guest, won two tickets in a Daily Mirror competition. He asked me if I’d like the other ticket! Years later I added him to my band on keyboards. Not sure if that was a plus though . . .
That's when Tom left the band and they were an unhappy trio

Only an australian of mature age would know the background on that answer
It was the most formative, culturally changing period for Australia
And here I thought you were all referring to the day when Chucky woke up in the middle of night with his visions of the Surround Master.

True, but still great live. Mardi Gras was pretty much their downfall when the others demanded equal opportunity to write the tunes. Even so, Stu’s tune Door to Door (B side of Sweet Hitchhiker) was pretty good IMO
Hate to disagree but CCR's only bum tracks were 'rude awakening number 2 of Pendulum, and Stu' s 3 tracks on Mardi Gras. I actually really liked Doug's 3 tracks on mardi gas, specially "need someone to hold".

I am a complete CCR nutcase

All good, but each to their own of course. The salient point I think is that whatever the other guys did, generally people didn't seem to consider it to be CCR they knew and loved? Actually, when I started playing guitar, the first things I'd learnt were Walk Don't Run and Proud Mary. Should have kept up the lessons after that! Not sure how many thousand times I listened to the solo in Grapevine as a kid. No argument with Rude Awakening. Strange to think that could be on the same album as Hideaway (absolute killer vocal)

So true and ditto re grapevine. In my opinion no other group had as high a quality/crap ratio on their albums. Personally i say 4 were perfect, bayou country, green river, willy and the poor boys, cosmos factory. The other imperfect 3 albums were absolutely remarkable starting from their first self titled album first track... I put a spell on you, in my opinon the best rock song lf all time.

Loved Bayou Country and Green River! One of my sisters bought me Green River for Christmas one year. The guitar intro to Green River and Born on the Bayou are still magic for me. Loved their R&B covers on Cosmos Factory of course

5. I Heard It Through the Grapevine
6. Lodi
7. Cotton Fields
8. Midnignt Special
9. Good Golly Miss Molly
10. Up Around the Bend

I have a lot of these as 45s, because I used to load and fix jukeboxes and I got to keep some of the records we took out.

The song It Came Out of the Sky appears in the Airwolf TV series episode Out of the Sky.

I also love your list. I notice that most on your list differs with mine but both lists are great. Only one other band has this amount of great hits...... The beatles. But CCR had less filler in their albums, more quality

Please note that due to the complexity and raw cost of our Y4 sound system people have asked for demonstrations and that means local distributors/ demonstrators etc. This has added a bunch of additional cost and means initially in Australia appointed agents. This will force us to increase the end price at the end of the month. See below:

On the other hand it presents you guys with an opportunity, if you are willing to act as a local demonstrator/ representative only QQ members can still get it at the old price and get that commission on each sale!

Talk to me if you are interested
