More about how the live recordings were brought back for this release, per a news announcement:

After spending roughly 50 years in storage, the original multitrack tapes were meticulously restored and mixed by the GRAMMY® Award-winning team of producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell, who have helmed countless acclaimed projects together, including the Beatles’ 50th-anniversary editions of Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, as well as audio for the Elton John biopic Rocketman and Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back Series. The LP was mastered by the celebrated engineer Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios using half-speed technology for the highest-quality listening experience.

Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall will also be released as a documentary film, Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall. Per a news release:

Directed by two-time GRAMMY® Award winner Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology and Jimi Hendrix Band of Gypsies) and narrated by Academy Award®-winning actor Jeff Bridges, the film takes viewers from the band’s earliest years together in El Cerrito, CA through their meteoric rise to fame. Featuring a wealth of unseen footage, Travelin’ Band culminates with the band’s show at the Royal Albert Hall—marking the only concert footage of the original CCR lineup to be released in its entirety.

    I have this as a 2CD/1DVD set from way back : a single 14 track CD along with Live In Europe (15 tracks, also a single CD) and a DVD of Oakland Jan 1970 (6 songs), RAH (14 songs) and four bonus tracks (one an interview).

    Is this the same thing as the Royal Albert Hall concert released by Fantasy back in 1980? Track listings are almost identical, although this new release is a track shorter.

    So cool but it’s missing”Someday Never Comes” – my fav.
