In just five years together, they released literally dozens of hit songs that remain staples of radio playlists, cover band setlists and bar jukeboxes the world over.
Their combination of country, blues, soul, r’n’b and psychedelic rock’n’roll brought each of these genres to the mainstream, some of them for the very first time.
They are a band that appeals to just about everyone, no matter your age, creed or musical proclivities. They are, quite simply, one of the greatest bands in the history of music.
Now, 50 years on from their first album, we’re shining the spotlight on this hugely influential and much-loved band. Rest your voice, you’ll need it for this two-hour celebration of Creedence classics.
Join Gemma Pike for the Creedence Clearwater Revival J Files, Thursday 28 June from 8pm on Double J.
