The legendary Creedence Clearwater Revival was America's ultimate Top 40 band of the late 1960s, many of their singles now placing high on the "greatest rock hits of all time" lists and in the GRAMMY Hall of Fame, with the band itself long enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
But it wasn't just the United States of America where CCR topped the charts. As Quiero Creedence now underscores, the band, which was so identified with a sound called "swamp rock," was big throughout all of Latin America, both then and now.
Releasing on Concord Picante on July 29, 2016, the Latin-inspired, multilingual tribute album to Creedence includes covers of the band's greatest songs by some of the biggest Latin artists from around the world including Juan Gabriel, Bunbury, Andrés Calamaro, Enjambre, Los Enanitos Verdes, Juanes, Los Lonely Boys, Ozomatli, La Marisoul from La Santa Cecilia, El Tri, Diamante Eléctrico, Los Lobos, as well as Billy Gibbons. As these names indicate, the set (the title of which translates as "I Want Creedence") spans a variety of genres and decades—and totals a social media reach of over 40 million fans for the participating artists.
The first single from Quiero Creedence will be Mexican superstar Juan Gabriel's Spanish version of "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?"
