Green River was CCR's third album, and their second one to be released in 1969. They weren't showing any signs of slowing down, as the great music kept on coming, with their distinctive down-to-earth roots-rock style firmly established. Green River contained many of John Fogerty's best-known songs, including "Lodi", "Green River" and "Bad Moon Rising", and the latter two both reached #2 when they were released as singles. Though they still hadn't reached the number one spot on the singles chart, they were all over the airwaves and widely becoming recognised as one of the new voices of American popular music. The album itself did manage to make it to #1.
