Per liner notes
For his review of Chronicle for Allmusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that the album was suitably compiled, but does not like how the Compact Disc reissue had the full-length version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" because it does not fit with the other songs on the album. The Blender review called Chronicle, Vol. 1 the best compilation album by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Robert Christgau called the album a good starting-point for Creedence fans.
