138 of 1001 Albums: Creedence Clearwater Revival's Green River

This album was released the same year as Bayou Country, and it ranked 95 on Rolling Stones' Great Albums of All Time list. "Bad Moon Rising", and "Green River" were two singles released from the album that reached #2 on the charts. Songs like "Broken Spoke Shuffle", and "Glory Be" were actually test songs, and feature no lyrics. 

My Thoughts 
I think it is still interesting that Creedence Clearwater Revival released three albums all in one year, so it was inevitable would one would be right behind the one I listened to yesterday. What is great is how they were diverse enough, and talented enough to make this much music all in one year, and have two identifiable sounds  accompany each.  I liked Bayou Country a tad better than Green River, but you still get their distinctive sound without a repeat of music. I would say it's great music to move to. 

Rating 4 of 5.
