The year 1969 proved to be an epic one in the too-short history of Creedence Clearwater Revival. In that year alone, the band released three Top Ten albums, and had four hit singles and three charting B-sides. In addition to the incredible quantity and quality of their releases, the band also played the Woodstock music festival, played on the Ed Sullivan show twice and toured throughout North America. Commemorating the forty-fifth anniversary of this banner year, Fantasy Records launched its Creedence Clearwater Revival 1969 initiative with vinyl re-issues timed to coincide with their original release dates: Bayou Country was released on January 14th, Green River on August 5th and Willy and the Poor Boys on November 4th. Also coming in 2014 are a new Greatest Hits package and High Resolution Audio releases.

On Record Store Day — April 19, 2014 — Fantasy Records will make available a limited-edition 10-inch vinyl disc titled The ’69 Singles [Record Store Day Exclusive]. Featured are eight chart-topping hits: “Proud Mary,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Lodi,” “Green River,” “Commotion” (the B-side of “Green River”), “Down on the Corner” and “Fortunate Son.”
