Chronicle, Vol. 1, also known as Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits, is a greatest hits album by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was released in January 1976 by Fantasy Records. The edited version of I Heard It Through The Grapevine featured on the album was simultaneously released as a single.
Chronicle, Vol. 1 is a singles collection with 13 A-sides and seven B-sides. Unlike the two previously released Creedence Gold compilations, Chronicle Vol. 1 includes all of the group's charted hits. Chronicle Vol. 2 was released in 1986, and features non-charting "classics" collected from the same albums as the songs on Vol. 1.
Certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association Of America, it is the best-selling album in the band's catalogue. The compilation was ranked number 59 in the updated version of Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. It has sold 6,357,000 copies in the US since 1991, when Nielson SoundScan began tracking sales for Billboard.
