Singer John Fogerty once said he wanted to make records that would still play on the radio in 10 years.
More than 40 years after his band Creedence Clearwater Revival disbanded, the classic tunes are still being heard.
On Thursday, people will be hearing many of them at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts in Columbus.
Classic Albums Live, a company that has high-quality musicians recreate the sound of albums of different musical groups note for note, will perform “Classic Albums Live: Creedence Clearwater Revival —Chronicle, Volume 1.”
Never miss a local story.
The company was created in 2003 by Craig Martin.
He said the show is much more than just a cover band.
“All of our attention is on the music,” Martin said. ““Love the record. Learn the record. Play the record,” he told a reporter for the Frederick News Post in Virginia.
The company has shows featuring albums from many musical acts including Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Beatles.
Each song is heard just as it was recorded. Nothing is subtracted or added.
Chronicle features 20 of the iconic band’s biggest hits.
Songs such as “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Green River,” “ Down on the Corner,” “Fortunate Son,” “Travelin’ Band” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain” all made the Top 5 on the charts in this country.
Creedence Clearwater Revival, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, was one of the top bands in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
Group members were John Fogerty, Tom Fogerty, Doug Clifford and Stu Cook.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says many of the band’s songs “endure as timeless rock and roll classics,” and that the band “defined the spirit and sound of rock and roll as authentically as any American group ever has.”
The band was inspired by the acts such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Hank Williams.
The band performed at the Woodstock Festival in 1969 the same year the band had three Top 10 albums.
