US Fantasy Records was founded by Max and Sol Weiss in 1949 in San Francisco. In 1968, Fantasy's most successful act emerged when the local group Creedence Clearwater Revival released its first hit record, "Susie Q,". The group had been signed in 1964 as the Blue Velvets, but the label renamed it the Golliwogs so they would fit in with the then-new incoming crop of British Invasion bands. After a series of failed releases under that name on the Fantasy and Scorpio labels, the group changed its name to Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Prior to 1972, all Fantasy products were released on Liberty in the UK.
