Creedence Clearwater Revisited is a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band that just happens to have the rhythm section, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford, from the original band, which means they do versions of Creedence's songs that sound almost exactly like the original versions. Almost. That's the key word, and all anyone really needs to know about these guys. It's one thing to do this kind of thing live in a bar or convention hall, but why cut a record of near note-perfect replicas of what the original Creedence did a better job of doing in the first place? Maybe because playing Creedence tunes beats delivering pizza.
