BERKELEY - Creedence Clearwater Revival, one of the best selling groups in the history of pop music and creators of seven Gold LPs (six of which have each sold over a million units)  and eight old singles, has decided not to record as a unit any more.

The three members of the group, John Fogerty, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford, made the announcement today jointly with Fantasy Records, for whom the group has recorded since its inception in 1966.

Each of the group remains under contract to Fantasy and will devote his time to peoducing, writing and recording on individual projects. Doug Clifford has recently issued his own Fantasy LP (Fantasy 9411) and Stu Cook has plans for his own solo album in the future.

Creedence leader John Fogerty is currently producing an album by The Blue Ridge Rangers. "Jambalaya"/"Workin' on a Building," a single preceeding the album, is being released this week.

The decision was reached by mutual agreement and they will still maintain headquarters at their Berkeley, California studio, "Cosmo's Factory" where Clifford recorded his recent LP. In addition, the organization involved with CCR - their personal associates and business staff - will remain intatc and serve the individual members' needs.

"We don't regard this as breaking up," the group said. "We look at it as an expansion of our activities. We will devote our time to individual rather than group projects."
