Quiero Creedence is the Latin tribute album to legendary rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival
July 29 release features covers of CCR’s greatest songs by some of the top Latin artists from across the world including Juan Gabriel, Andrés Calamaro, Bunbury, Enjambre, Los Enanitos Verdes, Juanes, Los Lonely Boys, Ozomatli, La Marisoul from La Santa Cecilia and El Tri
Billy Gibbons & La Marisoul from La Santa Cecilia – “Green River”: CCR’s “Green River” reached No. 2 in 1969. John Fogerty actually based it on the Putah Creek near Winters, Calif., and took the “Green River” title from a soda syrup label. Billy Gibbons, of course, is world famous as guitarist/vocalist for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band ZZ Top. But his debut solo album Perfectamundo, released last year, had an Afro-Cuban flavor emanating from his little known background in Latin percussion. Marisol “La Marisoul” Hernandez is the lead vocalist of multi-faceted Los Angeles-based La Santa Cecilia, whose music has been featured on Weeds and won the GRAMMY in 2014 for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.
