Creedence Clearwater Revival

Profile:
Creedence Clearwater Revival (often known as "CCR") were an American rock band, active 1967–1972, formed by John Fogerty (Vocals And Guitar), Tom Fogerty (Rhythm Guitar), Stu Cook (Bass), and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford (Drums). Despite being from Berkeley , California, the band's music usually invoked imagery of the American South.

John Fogerty, Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford initially joined forces in 1959 as The Blue Velvets and later backed John's older brother, Tom, as Tommy Fogerty and the Blue Velvets. The group later changed their name to the Golliwogs and released several unsuccessful singles. In 1967, they changed their name to Creedence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty took total control of the group. CCR was extremely prolific, releasing 6 albums and various singles between 1968 and 1970. However, the other members of the band chafed under John Fogerty's domination and in 1971 it was announced that Tom Fogerty had left the band. CCR made one more album, 1972's "Mardi Gras", as a trio. In the wake of Tom's departure, John, responding the other members' requests to have more say in band matters, stipulated that both Cook and Clifford had to contribute equally to the writing and recording. The album was poorly received and CCR subsequently split.

In the years following their split, the animosities between John and the other members grew. When the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 1993, John infamously barred Cook and Clifford from the stage (Tom had passed away in 1990). In 1995, Cook and Clifford formed Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

I think Todd In The Shadows on Youtube said it best:
Creedence was the band for everyone, whether you were a hippie or a redneck. Their songs are timeless.

So anyone know what affiliation CCR has with "The Blue Ridge Rangers"? They sound alike, recorded on the same label & had most of the same members...??? NO history or info on "The Blue Ridge Rangers" Page...???

I'll try again then.. the chronology is completely wrong, it should be : Creedence... (1968), Bayou Country (1969), Green River (1969), Willie & the Poor Boys (1969), Cosmo's Factory (1970), Pendulum (1970), Mardi Grass (1972)......

The album chronology is wrong here, 1969 : "Green River" was before "Willy And The Poor Boys" and 1970 : Cosmo's Factory" was before "Pendulum" :-)
