Classic Albums Live: Creedence Clearwater Revival: Chronicle
Classic Albums Live performs “Creedence Clearwater Revival: Chronicle,” Sunday, July 27, 7:30 p.m., at The Capitol, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com.

Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles including “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “Lodi,” “Susie Q,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Travelin’ Band,” “Fortunate Son,” “Down On The Corner,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Proud Mary.”

Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it faithfully from the original recording.
