John Fogerty and his former Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmates have come together to give their thumbs up to the new Netflix documentary, ‘Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall.’
Fogerty tells Billboard, "I’m glad fans finally get to see it as a performance. I’m sure almost all of them have maybe heard about it, but no one’s ever seen it before. I think there’s been a few (bootleg) copies running around, but I don’t know who was able to actually see it anywhere for 50-something years... There are underlying other emotions -- part of which is why in the world was it hidden away so long, that kind of thing."
And drummer Doug "Cosmo" Clifford is also pleased it was released, saying he experienced many different emotions when he watched it.
He said, "Bittersweet some, and, you know, you look back and go, 'Wow! We were pretty good.' It's like I'm watching another band. I'm watching these guys from El Cerrito, California coming out in England and showing the Brits that rock and roll was born in the U.S.A. and we're here to show you."
To go along with the Netflix documentary, there's a companion album available on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital, with a Super Deluxe Edition Box Set that will include the album and film to follow on November 14th.
