Creed - Creed - 1978 ( not the 90's band)





I don't know much about this band except that they rock!!!! - Skynfan




CREED - 1978 self titled debut and only album - Asylum Records 6E-136 .......Hard Southern Rock boogie band...

Tracks :
1. Keep On Rockin'
2. Tied Down
3. Firecracker
4. You Never See It That Way
5. We're Gonna make It
6. Just Can't Stop
7. Too Proud To Cry
8. Can't Find Love
9. Time And Time Again

...CREED : Chip Thomas-drums / Steve Ingle-vocals, guitar / Hal Butler-vocals, keyboards / James Flynn-bass / Luther Maben-guitars...This is not the Christian rock grunge band called Creed or either of the 2 metal bands called Creed in 1980s and 1990s.

Found this info on the band on www.rockdetector.com


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'.
Hope this is of interest, i've known the album for a while, it's a good little record, never heard the later EP though.

Thanks Bigfootkit I app. the links you send me. My dad will love the Doc Holliday

bigfootkit said...

Your dad likes the Southern stuff too?
That's really cool.
My dad liked Bing Crosby.
My dad was awesome, but his taste in music was not.

Skynfan said...

Oh man you don't even know. My dad raised me on Southern Rock. From day one. My dad took me to see Black Oak when I was 5. He has been in bands since I was born and I have just been surrounded by music my whole life. And now my brother Trevor who is 15 and can run circles around me on guitar has hair down to his ass and listens to nothing but Southern Rock.
Take Care man ...and keep on rockin

Every so often, I Google this album. I'm so glad I got a hit this time. Thank you.

In my opinion the most underrated rock album ever! I picked up the album in the delete bin for a dollar. Best dollar I've ever spent on music and maybe the best dollar I've ever spent period. Every song is great.

I thought I was the only one who had ever heard of these guys. I foolishly traded my copy of the album 30 years ago. Hearing these songs again made my day!!

Hey, thanks for posting the Creed EP. I have the original 1978 LP I bought new in a cut-out bin not long after it was released. I was lucky enough a few years ago to find a copy on cd-r, with the original LP artwork reproduced to jewel case format. Sound quality is great. The is the most info I've run across on this band in a long time. Thanks again, to everyone, for all the info.

Holy *hit! I can't believe I found it. Thanks for posting the link. This album went with the rest of my vinyl about 20 years ago. Definetly a treasure. :) Thanks

Hello. In 1980 I bought this Creed on 8track from a value bin at a store in minneapolis that closed down 3 months later. I dug thru this bin full of stuff I did not recognize and or artists I was not interested in. The Creed was the ONLY one of its kind in the bin. Put it in my tape deck and WOW ! I asked myself where did these guys come from and where have they been all my life? It was all I listened to and could not get enough in my ears..the best stuff I have ever listened to. Music masters with lyrics to match. Then one day a fateful event took place as I heard the tape deck grind to a halt. I immediately attempted to recover the tape and realized that I had better take it easy because of how fouled up the tape and rollers had become. I did what I thought was the next best thing...I took the deck and the injured best tape I had ever heard and moved it to my basement. I got a new deck and proceed to Don Leary's records and tapes in the St Anthony village shopping center. I will never forget the look on Don's face ..Who?, sorry. So I raced back to the value bin just to find they had closed down- out of business. Bout 6 months ago I came across the tape deck with it's victim tape still in it and still I had no courage to try to recover this tape. It is like a doctor having to leave the bullet in the brain because of the danger trying to remove it. Long story short , Im pleading with you on my knees here.. I need a Creed fix and I need it bad. Can you help me? CD would be great!

Memphis rocker here, saw Chip not too long ago, at a Suzanne Jerome and the Breaks concert at Neil's on Madison before it burned down. A really good show by the way! I have the albums and will be transferring them if anyone wants them. GREAT article! thanks for remembering a VITAL part of Memphis ROCK!! there were so many AWESOME bands/players that played locally, Creed, Target, Lord Tracy, Roxy Blue, Shawn Lane, just to name a few.

ROCK ON!!!!

Michael said...

Does any one have the Believe it EP by Creed that was posted here before? Be greatly appreciated.
