AllMusic Review by

The 2009 Singles Collection offers something that the many other previous Creedence Clearwater Revival compilations do not: the band's A-sides and B-sides presented complete and in chronological order, plus a DVD containing the five promo clips CCR released ("Sweet Hitch-Hiker," "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "Bootleg," "I Put a Spell on You," "Lookin' Out My Back Door"). This focus means there are songs here that never make most CCR hits collections -- the A-side "Porterville," but generally flips like "Call It Pretending," "Walk on the Water," "Door to Door," and "Tearin' Up the Country," plus the "45 Revolutions Per Minute" oddity -- but apart from that, this covers familiar, albeit still enjoyable, territory.
