Live in Europe is the first vinyl-Double-LP live album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1973 documenting the Mardi Gras tour. The album is notable because it was performed as a trio following Tom Fogerty's departure. The record was released despite John Fogerty's strong objections.[1][2][3][4][5][6] But still John Fogerty sings, plays guitar, solo-guitar and harmonica. The album was released after John Fogerty's final struggles with Fantasy Records, in which he as song-writer was trapped. This rather than his brothers absence. In 1973 John Fogerty said he never would play a Creedence song ever again, since this only would benefit Fantasy Records. This became a promise which he held for some 20 years.[7]
