Creedence Clearwater Revival — Cosmo’s Factory
180g Black Vinyl + Digital Download
Following on the heels of their wildly successful Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys releases, CCR’s first album of the ’70s serves up a swirling gumbo — from haunting swamp rock (Run Through the Jungle) to soulful ballads (Long As I Can See the Light) and radio-friendly rockers (Up Around the Bend). In between are some well-imagined covers from Roy Orbison, Elvis and Bo Diddley.
2008 reissue of CCR’s 1970 album on 180-gram heavyweight black vinyl.

The Devil’s on the Loose
Maybe they paid off the devil, but between 1969 and 1970, Creedence Clearwater Revival were unstoppable. They had with five monster albums and a seemingly endless run of chart singles.
If nothing else, Cosmo’s Factory finally put to rest all the trash talk that Creedence was a singles band with no substance. The band roars out of the gate with a seven-minute opener, Ramble Tamble, complemented nicely by an 11-minute slow jam cover of Marvin Gaye’s I Heard It Through the Grapevine.
