Live in Europe is the first live album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1973 documenting the Mardi Gras tour. The album is notable because it was performed as a trio following Tom Fogerty's departure. The record was released despite John Fogerty's strong objections.
Many fans claim that the album was not an actual live recording in front of an audience, and that it was a tour rehearsal tape with audience cheers mixed in later (this is notable during the opening and first verse of "Proud Mary").
Creedence Clearwater Revival (often abbreviated CCR) was an American rock band that gained popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s with a number of successful singles drawn from various albums.
The group consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty, his brother and rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bassist Stu Cook, and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed rock and roll and swamp rock genres. Despite their San Francisco Bay Area origins, they are sometimes also cited as southern rock stylists.
CCR's music is still a staple of American and worldwide radio airplay and often figures in various media. The band has sold 26 million albums in the United States alone. CCR was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.
