Creedence Clearwater Revival
Pendulum

  (Item #: creedpendu_1910) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding pressing of Pendulum with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Big, lively, open and clear with Tubey Magical richness - just the right sound for CCR
  • 4 stars: "John Fogerty spent time polishing the production, bringing in keyboards, horns, even a vocal choir. His songs became self-consciously serious and tighter, working with the aesthetic of the rock underground — Pendulum was constructed as a proper album, contrasting dramatically with CCR's previous records, all throwbacks to joyous early rock records where covers sat nicely next to hits and overlooked gems tucked away at the end of the second side."

  • This is an outstanding recording. And why shouldn't it be? It's engineered by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin II and many more)
  • "The original group's debut album was a then-groundbreaking meld of progressive rock with classical and jazz influences... [it's] far druggier than the later group in its ambience (cofounders Keith Relf and Jim McCarty were the heavily psychedelic half of the final lineup of the Yardbirds, which made them anathema to Jimmy Page), but vocalist Jane Relf had a striking individual style, and the classical influence was unique for its time."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "With Aja, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's obsession with sonic detail and fascination with composition reached new heights. A coolly textured and immaculately produced collection of sophisticated jazz-rock, Aja has none of the overt cynicism or self-consciously challenging music that distinguished previous Steely Dan records ... a shining example of jazz-rock at its finest.
