Well, all of CCR's original Fantasy LPs and 45s (not including reissues or repressings) were actually pressed by RCA - and their original Fantasy LPs were generally pressed on that infamous “Dynawarp” (Dynaflex) vinyl. And RCA-pressed 45s are generally on the noisy side, as well. Thus, you'd be lucky to find a copy of an original CCR Fantasy that’s been play-graded in even VG+ condition.
I rather like my completely quiet Fantasy 8410 Pendulum. Listening to it right now. The organ, especially the sax and Fogerty's voice all come across as natural with good presence. I do like the 45's better though.
