Offered for sale is an original 1969 Japanese pressing of Green River by Creedence Clearwater Revival, issued in a Japan-only gatefold cover, pressed on red vinyl and including the rare original “New Rock” obi.
About this copy: The copy offered for sale is an original Japanese first pressing, which featured a gatefold cover that was unique to Japan and not included on later pressings. This copy was also pressed on red “Everclean” vinyl and includes the rare “New Rock Best Series” obi and a lyric insert.
The disc and cover are VG+, there are a few very light marks on the disc and very slight wear on the edges of the cover. The obi is VG++ and the lyric insert is M-. The obi includes the “hojyuhyo” or reorder tag.
A nice copy of a great record and the only copy of this we’ve ever seen that included the obi.
Background: AllMusic gave Green River, CCR’s third album, 5 stars:
If anything, CCR’s third album Green River represents the full flower of their classic sound initially essayed on its predecessor, Bayou Country. One of the differences between the two albums is that Green River is tighter, with none of the five-minute-plus jams that filled out both their debut and Bayou Country, but the true key to its success is a peak in John Fogerty’s creativity… Green River is ultimately welcoming music, since the band rocks hard and bright and the melancholy feels comforting, not alienating.
