Creedence Clearwater Revival
Willy & The Poor Boys Exclusive LP
A Newbury Comics exclusive vinyl pressing.
Willy & The Poor Boys, the fourth album by Creedence Clearwater Revival, remains a top-selling album in the CCR catalog with over 2 million copies sold to date. Reaching the top 50 in six countries upon its release in 1969, including France where it went to #1, the album stands as a landmark international success and one that cemented the band’s legacy as a vanguard of American rock 'n' roll. This newly reissued vinyl edition contains the ubiquitous chart-topping hit, "Down On The Corner," which rocketed into the top 10 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the US upon its release in 1969 and continues to be a mainstay on classic rock radio today. Additionally, the visceral "Fortunate Son" is included here - an incendiary protest song that became inextricably linked to the Vietnam war, resulting in its addition to the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2014 for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." One of the greatest pure rock 'n' roll records ever cut, Willy & The Poor Boys is an absolute "must-have" for any serious classic rock fan.
