Creedence Clearwater Revival: John Fogerty (vocals, guitar); Tom Fogerty (guitar); Stu Cook (bass); Doug Clifford (drums).
Recorded in 1981. Includes liner notes by Hoyt Axton.
As the title implies, this collection rounds up Creedence Clearwater Revival's most country-tinged tunes. However, many of these songs, recorded between 1969 and 1972, are "country" only in their rural themes, since CCR was always a no-frills rock & roll band above anything else. "Lookin' for a Reason" bears the familiar twang of a classic country tune, with frontman John Fogerty turning his powerful voice into a laconic drawl, but most of the tracks here feature CCR's dirt-road blend of blues, R&B, and fierce guitar-driven rock. This trademark sound is well represented by key CCR tracks such as the galloping "Don't Look Now," the weary "Lodi," and the day-dreamy "Looking Out My Back Door." In addition, CREEDENCE COUNTRY also features a handful of songs from latter-day albums PENDULUM and MARDI GRAS as bonus tracks, including the organ-drenched "It's Just a Thought" and two songs ("Need Someone to Hold" and "Tearin' Up the Country") with vocals by drummer Doug Clifford.
