Over the years Creedence Clearwater Revival gave us tons of well written songs. Those songs were written about time happening at that time. Though many of the lyrics sing true today, plenty of them are of their time. However because they still hold a candle to today that’s why they ring true today. That and they still rock out. Their new album At The Royal Albert Hall sings to a relevance that still sings out today.
Opening with “Born On The Bayou” gets you ready for what’s coming. “Green River” and “Travelin’ Band” comes in and steals the show while “Fortunate Son” brings it’s usual strife to the stage. The whole concert feels like a greatest hits show. The play of “Bad Moon Rising” or the sheer magic of “Proud Mary” give plenty of upright moments throughout. It’s a great show and it’s even better that it was captured at this time.
The album is available now from Craft Recordings on all formats. It’s also available toe stream on all platforms.
