Great CCR album. This is a replacement for the vinyl album that I bought back in the early 70s which was lost in one of my numerous moves. Bought the CD years ago but is just not the same. This completes my CCR vinyl collection. Prompt delivery, second copy, last one got scratched up. It’s just good old Creedence!
