critics' view

Because Creedence Clearwater Revival first rose to prominence with hits like “Suzy Q,” and achieved such immense popularity with a teenybopper audience, many people (myself among them) have until now refused to take them very seriously. But “Proud Mary” should have clued us in. It was more than simply a fine song by Top-40 standards; it was a superb song by any standards. Creedence’s new album, Green River, demonstrates convincingly that “Proud Mary” was no fluke. Make no mistake about it; Creedence Clearwater Revival, despite some rather clear limitations, is one of the most exciting and satisfying bands around.
