    Yep...I assume you are referring to Chronicle..."Born on the Bayou" is on Chronicle: Volume Two.

    Well that explains it.....they saved it for for that one and then added a bunch of filler I didn't even know there was a Chronicle II. Well if Volume I is called '20 Greatest Hits' then Born on the Bayou' should be on IT, or else they shouldn't have called it '20 Greatest Hits'

    Yep, I just bought it on Ebay :)

    I was messing around on the guitar today and I wanted to get the solo down pat. I thought I had the freakin' song!

    That just means around x-mas time they will release another cd titled "The Ultimate Hits" and include that song so you have to buy that 1 too.

    If I purchase a CD by mail I usually find out what songs are on the CD before I buy.

    you guys are failing to look at the big picture....

    CCR and the term "greatest hits" don't go together anyway

    Gee, what a novel idea

    Actually I don't even own '20 greatest Hits". I thought that's what I had bought but actually I had decided to buy the original recordings and had started with their first, self titled CD. I was still surprised that Born on the Bayou wasn't on the Greatest Hits though when I searched on it. I ended up just buying the original CD which happens to be titled 'Bayou Country'.

    Usually right, but sometimes not entirely factually correct.

    "Suzie Q", "I Put A Spell on You", "Run Through the Jungle" and "Commotion" top my CCR favorite list.
