"Commotion" is the second track on the Green River
album. It was the B-side of the "Green River
" single, which peaked at #2 in the US and #19 in the UK. A standard practice at the time was to release lesser-quality songs as B-sides on singles, but Fogerty always liked to take a different approach, pairing two A-side-worthy songs together, as he wanted the highest possible quality on all CCR products at all times. This practice helped boost CCR singles sales even further.
