All of these reissues were so critically acclaimed upon their release some 10 years back. And most have been sold out for a long time.Now they're back and better than ever! Think these classic CCR songs sounded better than ever on Analogue Productions' recent LP reissues? Well, you're right of course. Or at least you WERE right. Now they sound even better. That's because we've cut the choicest tracks from each of these seven albums at 45 RPM. With so few songs on each side (some releases have only one song per side) and at 45 RPM, your cartridge is going to track better and ultimately SING sweeter.
They're pressed at QRP on 200-gram vinyl and are housed in deluxe tip-on jackets. Still mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman from the original analog tapes, still comprising the complete seven-record studio catalog in a deluxe box set titled Absolute Originals.
With the biggest hits from each record (packaged in replicas of the original jackets), you'll get in-depth liners by rock critic extraordinare Ben Fong-Torres of Rolling Stone fame, and photos by Baron Wolman and Didi Zill, both of whom were there to document CCR "back in the day."
There is also an essay by Steve Hoffman, who along with Kevin Gray, remastered these gems at AcousTech Mastering.
We've also included a bonus record that includes rare mixes of "Bad Moon Rising" and "Proud Mary," cut at 45 of course. (AnalogueProductions)
"This set of eight 45rpm LPs might be the most luxurious item I own, but it's a slice of nirvana…The sound is unbelievable, and the quality and packaging are just as wonderful." Stereophile Records To Die For – Brian Damkroger, Stereophile, February 2008
