A new Creedence Clearwater Revival box set will be out in time for the holidays.

Creedence Clearwater Revival: Boxed Set contains everything they cut in the studio for Fantasy Records from 1967 to 1972 — their studio albums Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bayou Country, Green River, Willy and the Poor Boys, Cosmo’s Factory, Pendulum and Mardi Gras — plus two live albums and a bonus disc of 25 rarities recorded from 1961 to 1967.

CCR frontman John Fogerty recently explained that he developed the mindset it took to write so much material for the band in so short a time after they’d had their first hit with a cover of Dale Hawkins’ “Suzie Q.”

“I took stock and I said, ‘Well, God, we’re on this tiny, tiny label. It’s a jazz label – they don’t even know anything about rock and roll. We don’t have a manager. We don’t have a publicist. We don’t have a producer. We don’t have big money like Columbia Records or The Beatles.’ I just said, ‘Alright, we’re going to have to do it with music.’ I lit a fire under my own rear end to come up with as much music as I could and kind of overwhelm the audience, or the market, or whatever you want to call it.”
