2019 CD release.
Live archive release. This album represents the first-ever official release of Creedence Clearwater Revival's legendary Woodstock performance in it's entirety. CCR were one of the few bands to appear at Woodstock, who had already achieved notable chart success. However, for many their appearance flew under the radar - largely in part to the band not appearing in the movie or the soundtrack which were released post-festival. Their hour-long set took place shortly after midnight on 17 August 1969, a later than planned start due to the Grateful Dead's set over-running.
Kicking off with "Born on the Bayou," the album features the band's biggest singles of the day, plus selections off their first three LPs, including "Commotion," "Ninety-Nine and a Half (Won't Do)" and "Bootleg." Full of creative energy, John, Tom, Stu, and Doug delve deep into their music, playing extended improvisations of "I Put a Spell on You," "Keep on Chooglin'" and "Suzie Q."
