Roots rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival will be marking its Cosmo’s Factory album’s 50th anniversary with a vinyl reissue, set for release this coming 14th of August.
Cosmo’s Factory was spearheaded by its platinum status singles like “Who’ll Stop The Rain”, “Up Around The Bend”, and “Looking Out My Back Door” – which helped Creedence Clearwater Revival score their second #1 album in the US, following 1969’s Green River. This album also became a best-selling hit, netting up to 4 million units sold in the US alone.
The album’s 50th-anniversary 180-gram vinyl reissue was mastered at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios to take advantage of the demanding process. This means that the reissue will feature a premium level of clarity and reproduction, and will come housed in a tip-on jacket that matches the original pressing’s packaging.
Just last year, the band celebrated another 50-year milestone by releasing a previously unheard performance, the hour-long set they dished out at 1969’s Woodstock festival. This was because of CCR’s request to be excluded from the iconic 1970 documentary and the film’s soundtrack album.
