The digitally re-mastered version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s classic concert from “The Albert Hall” in 1970.

When CCR took the stage for two nights in April of 1970, the band members had reached the height of their international stardom and arrived ready to prove themselves as equals to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beatles, who had announced their breakup just days before. Their performance—which included hits like “Born On The Bayou,” “Proud Mary,” and “Fortunate Son” was met with a 15-minute standing ovation and rave next-day reviews in the UK’s top publications. More than 50 years after that legendary show, the original multitrack tapes have been meticulously restored and mixed by award winning producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell.

This powerful performance captures the band at the height of their powers before the acrimony and in-fighting kicked in. Performing classic CCR songs including “Bad Moon Rising”, “Proud Mary” and “Keep On Chooglin’, this is a perfect introduction to the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival and a must have for any fan!.

Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall will be released concurrently with the documentary concert feature film, Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall. Directed by two-time GRAMMY® Award winner Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology and Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsies) and narrated by Academy Award®-winning actor Jeff Bridges, the film takes viewers from the band’s earliest years together in El Cerrito, CA through their meteoric rise to fame. Featuring a wealth of unseen footage, “Travelin’ Band” culminates with the band’s show at the Royal Albert Hall—marking the only concert footage of the original CCR line-up to be released in its entirety. The film will rollout internationally on September 16th, stay tuned for more details coming soon.

The 180g LP was mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using half-speed technology for the highest-quality listening experience.

The album is being released on September 16th, 2022, on 180-gram vinyl, CD, cassette and digital formats (including ATMOS® immersive and hi-res audio). A Super Deluxe Edition Box Set will follow on November 18th,
