Cosmo's Factory- the name drummer Doug "Cosmo" Clifford gave CCR's rehearsal studio because so many hits were created there- lived up to its namesake in spades. Released in July 1970, the album contained more hit singles (six) than any other CCR LP, achieved multi-platinum status and became the band's all-time best-selling album both in the U.S. and worldwide (69 weeks on the Billboard charts). In addition, the trailblazing extended version of I Heard It Through The Grapevine (which Rolling Stone pronounced "more intense than any six minutes of Grateful Dead music on record") was never released as a single during the group's heyday but received enormous AM and FM airplay, boosting both the song and the LP to No. 1 on all three trade music charts.

Originally released in 1970.

Nice sound

Most of the Creedence titles were recorded with the drum kit slightly dull and the vocals slightly too bright (sibilant). Brightening up the drums (cymbals in particular) to what they should be makes the vocals too sibilant (the latest remaster does this). Dulling the vocals down to natural sounding makes the drum kit duller than it should be (Steve Hoffman's compromise). I prefer Steve Hoffman's approach - get the midrange right and all else will follow (also J. Gordon Holt of Stereophile's guiding idea). You can certainly turn the Steve Hoffman/Analogue Productions SACD up louder without any aural pain, something you can't say about the latest Fantasy remasters, because they become too sibilant.

Songs classic, not much difference from regular remaster.

While the songs on this album are classics and need no introduction, the sound was not much of an improvement over the standard remaster, I have purchased over 100 SACD's and this by far is the least difference in sound quality that I have found. But it is still a great album.

Properly remastered

I ordered this Analog Productions remaster from Acoustic Sounds and compared it with the 40th anniversary edition remaster. The AP one is definitely better, smoother, more musical.Sounds far more like the original LP I owned and remember. I never mind paying an few bucks more for a good product. Keep up he good work guys :):):)

The best mastering yet. This SACD sounds very natural and musical. I was surprised that it trumped the DCC gold disc! Crank up the volume and you'll be in heaven. Those who think it sounds bad must have a terrible system or are hard of hearing, because this disc is a classic that will never leave my collection.

My favorite Creedence album, the SACD sound is simply fabulous and brings the performance much closer to you.

Does any body listen to the final product?

When this Title was coming out on SACD, I was so thrilled. When I was a little kid I used to listen to the LP over and over and never got tired of it. The day I received the SACD, I even planned for my wife and daughter to leave the house for a couple of hours so I could relive the joy from the past. I popped open the cd, read all material and got ready to listen, and then, what was I hearing? Not even the crapy record player and speakers from 30 years ago produced such lifeless sound! Does any body listen to the final product? Completely disapointed with the mastering and sound! The cd layer sounds better than the SACD.
