Are these better than an old box of Creedance cassettes? While that might be more of a question for our friend the Dude, I would certainly argue that 2008 has been a pretty good year for Creedence fans. Earlier this year eMusic made the entire CCR catalog available for download, and now, being the 40th anniversary of the band, all the catalog is getting the inevitable reissue/remaster treatment (cleaner sound/extra tracks, etc). As I’ve mentioned on here in the past, if you’re a casual fan of the band, try moving beyond the “best of” compilations and dig into some of the albums themselves. While the band’s career was brief, it was pure Americana; just as incredibly solid as it was influential. Like the aforementioned Graham Nash reissue, we are giving copies of these away to AD readers; hit up the comments below with your favorite CCR jam to enter.
