No, Not That Creed!


Creed
Creed
1978Ripped @ 256

A band that actually sounds better with age. The one album delivered by CREED, a self-titled 1978 outing, offers Southern tinged Hard Rock that has a slight AOR flavour in places thanks to the keyboard work of Hal Butler. ‘Firecracker’ and ‘Time And Time Again' are particularly impressive in this respect. Amazingly, the band was still together in 1983 when CREED issued a four track EP, ‘Believe It!’ on their own label. The cover of the record was similar to the album, albeit with a silver grey logo in place of the full coloured version. Whilst vocalist / guitarist Steve Ingle, bass player James Flynn and drummer Chip Thomas remained in the band to record the EP, Butler and Maben had both departed. The latter was replaced by Jim Rusidoff and CREED’s music thus became a little harder in approach.
Steve Ingle would turn up years later in 1988 playing guitar in JOANNA DEAN’s band BIG NOISE. Hal Butler resurfaced in 1999, featuring on the JIMI JAMISON'S SURVIVOR album 'Empires'.

sorry to bother you, just a little detail, Albums like this or the "Bitch Boys - Behind the Hound Dog Walls" or "The Ghastly Ones - All Plastic Assembly Kit" have a funny pic, seems like a cover of the World War Z (great story btw) Windows showme that in the thumbnail folder after extract folder. Just funny

Over a year ago I messed up on a tagging process in iTunes and changed the album art for obviously more then World War Z. They are embedded into the tags and I am still trying to clear them out. Prob changed over a thousand files that way. Arrghhhhh!
