Recollection: Live Album
Creedence Clearwater Revisited and Universal’s Hip-O Records are proud to announce the reissue of the live double CD, RECOLLECTION.
RECOLLECTION features new live versions of many of the all time great Creedence Clearwater Revival hits and was recorded during one of the numerous powerhouse shows Revisited has performed since 1995. These were the first recordings of Creedence Clearwater Revival music released in over 20 years by any of the legendary group’s former members.
RECOLLECTION was recorded in western Canada, the result of numerous requests from Revisited fans to make a CD available. “It would never fail at shows that people would ask if we had a CD,” says Clifford, “RECOLLECTION is really a response to that demand.”
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s distinctive swamp rock went against the grain of the ’60s psychedelic San Francisco and won a worldwide following and numerous gold and multi-platinum singles and albums. It was rebellious, sometimes militant rock, co-opted into three minute radio gems that remain a rock radio and movie soundtrack staple.
After Creedence Clearwater Revival disbanded in 1972, Cook and Clifford — who had played together since junior high — remained close. They formed a production company together before heading off for separate musical projects, Clifford playing with the renowned Sir Douglas Quintet and Cook joining with a few former Doobie Brothers in the pioneering country-rock band Southern Pacific. When those projects ended, Cosmo and Stu hooked up again. Realizing both missed playing live Creedence music that had been lying dormant — with ex-bandmate John Fogerty previously calling for a boycott of and refusing to publicly perform Creedence Clearwater Revival music — Doug and Stu decided to put together their own band to perform the songs in concert.
Since then, Revisited has been playing classics like “Susie Q,” “Lodi,” “Proud Mary,” “Down On The Corner,” “Fortunate Son” and “Who’ll Stop The Rain” throughout North America, South America, New Zealand, Europe and Asia and many maintain is tighter than even Creedence Clearwater was. Revisited’s natural feel for this timeless music is evident on RECOLLECTION, which is an exciting and satisfying new chapter in this legacy.

“The music strikes the right chords with a cross section of listener. It is the music of the Vietnam era, high school dances, biker rides, baseball games, love found, love lost, rebellion…and eternal youth… “Revisited” works, not only because it has two of the original CCR pieces in place and thus, directly connected to history, but it works because it captures a slice of time.” ~Laughlin Entertainer
