Elwood is right, they'd better do it right and use the original uncompressed analog masters, or else this will be worthless. Since I don't have a vinyl turntbable, I'd love to be able to buy an uncompresed HD version of each album. A lot of bands are offering 24/96 versions of their albums at HDTracks or Qobuz, but most of the time, it's brickwalled and therefore useless.
If this wouldn't even be a thing until next year I wonder why they are talking about it now? Well I guess it might take that long to plan out. It would be cool to have if done well.
One thinks that they're simply trying to gauge interest. This might not happen at all. As for being "done well", remember the new label has yet to show that they know how to handle this band. Not to say they won't get the idea (asking if we want vinyl is a good start), but I get the feeling that nobody really takes Creed or us fans all that seriously. Hell, Wind-Up didn't even take it seriously when Creed was the biggest rock band in the world in the early 2000s. These days Creed is more of a punchline, so why would they care now? Don't get me wrong, I HOPE they care enough to do us right, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Interesting indeed ..but I doupt people want to pay all that money for albums they may not even like or care for. But I guess if ur really into trying new things and have wide taste in music, this could be for you.
We've dun it. A machine that can feel the whole spectrum of human emotion, sh*ty, crappy, sad, horny and hungry ..it can feel it all!

So did anything ever come of this? I know that the actual release (if it ever happens) would probably still be a few months off, but has there been any other news?
On a slightly different note, do you think it would be done well? As far as I can tell, there wasn't any remastering of any sort done for the Retrospective release, and some of those tracks weren't in the best shape. I'm really hoping Concord won't just be lazy and throw the CD masters onto wax without any tinkering to get the sound as good as it can be. I still love me some CDs and am mixed about the "vinyl sounds better" debate, but I'd pick up these albums in a heartbeat on vinyl.

So, Record Store Day is this Saturday in the U.S. I was scanning the releases in the hopes that there might be a first taste of the Creed vinyl that was teased a few months ago, but to no avail. However, I DID notice that Concord is issuing a new vinyl box set of Creedence Clearwater Revival's entire discography: www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/8521
While I WAS looking, I don't honestly expect any Creed vinyl (assuming it's coming) would be geared towards RSD or anything like that. Such events are mainly geared towards hipsters and other music snobs, which usually would not count bands like Creed among their favorites. But, given that they've only released four albums, I think its possible that we might see a box set of this type for Creed if the vinyl tease proves fruitful.
