About this copy: This copy of Creedence Clearwater Revival is a 1969 Japanese first pressing on the Liberty label.

The insert is VG++ with slight discoloration, but no writing or tears.

The red vinyl disc is M- on side one with a couple of spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  Side two is VG++ with a couple of light inaudible marks on the last two tracks.  Clean disc!

A rare pressing of a terrific LP.

Background: Released in July, 1968, Creedence Clearwater Revival was the debut LP by the band of the same name. While the album only reached #52 on the U.S. album charts, it was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA, helped by the single “Suzie Q,” which reached #11 on the U.S. singles charts.

Allmusic.com gave Creedence Clearwater Revival a 4 star review:

Released in the summer of 1968 — a year after the summer of love, but still in the thick of the Age of Aquarius – Creedence Clearwater Revival’s self-titled debut album was gloriously out-of-step with the times, teeming with John Fogerty’s Americana fascinations. While many of Fogerty’s obsessions and CCR’s signatures are in place — weird blues (“I Put a Spell on You”), Stax R&B (Wilson Pickett’s “Ninety-Nine and a Half”), rockabilly (“Susie Q”), winding instrumental interplay, the swamp sound, and songs for “The Working Man” — the band was still finding their way. Out of all their records (discounting Mardi Gras), this is the one that sounds the most like its era, thanks to the wordless vocal harmonies toward the end of “Susie Q,” the backward guitars on “Gloomy,” and the directionless, awkward jamming that concludes “Walking on the Water.”
