When it comes to the great rock bands of the ’60s and ’70s, it’s never too late to discover something new. WWith the plethora of unique live performances from groups like Led Zeppelin or The Grateful Dead often being recorded and then lost for decades, studio albums are just the beginning.

The latest major live category to be trawled for a new compilation is Creedence Clearwater Revival – the group’s April 14, 1970 performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall being immortalized by a 12-track album and documentary. The show’s tapes had been lost for more than 50 years and were “meticulously restored,” according to a press release for the new rollout.

The film component with the title Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall, It is directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton, who also directed The Beatles Anthology and Jimi Hendrix – Band of Gypsies. Jeff Bridges narrates the documentary, which chronicles the group’s formation in El Cerrito, California, through its rise to astronomical prominence.

The importance of the performance at the Albert Hall riof as much about CCR’s cemented status as one of the biggest bands in the world as about the tide in the music business at that time. The group took the stage in London just days after the Beatles announced their split.a closed door/open window scenario that gave them a chance to prove something. With tracks like “Born On The Bayou,” “Proud Mary” and “Fortunate Son,” CCR showed its merit, earning “a 15-minute standing ovation and rave reviews the next day in the leading UK publications.””

A first track of the compilation was released today ahead of the album release: the live version of “Fortunate Son”. Famous as the soundtrack to Forrest Gump’s introduction to Lieutenant Dan, the track has become an iconic counterculture anthem and was popular in the anti-Vietnam War movement of the time.

Although the documentary will be rolled out internationally starting September 16th, the album (available as a box set with the film) will not be available until November 14th. For one of the greatest wasteful groups Definitely worth the wait for that.
