Credence Clearwater Revival had a string of hits in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. During this period, I believe CCR was America’s premier rock and roll band. Although a Bay Area band, CCR was strongly influenced by Southern Rock, Swamp Blues, and Swamp Rock. They never had a #1 hit, but they had a string of #2 hits – Looking Out My Backdoor, Bad Moon Rising, Green River, Proud Mary, Who’ll Stop the Rain, Travelin’ Band, and Long As I Can See the Light. Other great hits were Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Born on the Bayou, Lodi, Fortunate Son, and Suzie Q.
Here’s a few CCR songs that are great songs that never made the top 100.
