In 1963, members of The Blue Velvets were watching a PBS documentary on Vince Guaraldi, who had a recent hit with "Cast Your Fate To The Wind." The Blue Velvets were excited to learn that Guaraldi's label, Fantasy Records, was located nearby in Oakland, CA.

The band approached Max Weiss, co-owner of Fantasy Records, about doing some instrumentals for the label. Weiss was impressed with the energy of the band and signed them, but had them change their name to The Golliwogs (which they kept for 3.5 years).

After Fantasy Records was sold to Saul Zaentz, the band changed their name again- to Creedence Clearwater Revival.
