Chronicle, Vol. 1 contains every one of Creedence Clearwater Revival's original 19 hit singles - including "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Green River," "Down on the Corner," "Travelin' Band," "Up Around the Band," and "Have You Ever Scene the Rain" - plus "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," which became a hit at the same time this double-record compilation was released. It's a lean, concise collection that tells you everything you need to know about Creedence. Several of the band's individual albums are essential, but Chronicle is not only an excellent introduction to the group, it offers definitive proof that group was one of the definitive singles bands of the late '60s. Rarely has a greatest hits collection been so well-assembled. 2 LP's.

Of varying quality

Reviewer: Brian
John Fogerty's voice is recorded with varying degrees of resolution. In some songs, his voice sounds raspy, and it's not because he does have a little rasp in his voice, but it's because of the recording. I'm sure that the songs are sourced from many places, some of them pretty good, but others have an edge that I don't enjoy hearing. It seems like the voice recordings may have been over saturated on some of the sources.

The instrumental sound is usually of a fine quality. It fills the space between the speakers, in most cases, but I wouldn't say that it extends beyond. On some of the songs, the soundstage seems unusually narrow - not quite mono, but lacking in width and depth.

Overall, the album does have great songs, but I can honestly say that I don't listen to it very often because of its limited sound.
