Creedence Clearwater Revival shares a video of their Royal Albert Hall performance of “Fortunate Son.” It serves as the latest preview of the upcoming projects detailing their 1970 show at the iconic London venue.
The April 14, 1970 event featured Creedence Clearwater Revival deliver hit after hit from three studio albums issued in less than a year: Bayou Country, Green River, and Willie And The Poor Boys, and their self-titled 1968 debut.
Directed by Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology and Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsys) and narrated by 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 lineup to be released in its entirety.
Starting on September 16, Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall will be available presenting audio of the full concert. After spending roughly 50 years to bring it back to life, the original multitrack tapes were meticulously restored and mixed by the team of producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell.
It will be available in multiple formats, including 180-gram vinyl, CD, cassette tape, and via digital platforms, including in hi-res and Dolby ATMOS immersive audio formats. The live recording will be released simultaneously alongside the documentary concert feature film, Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall.
