Biography

For fans of bluesy, hard-charging boogie rock, the legendary band Humble Pie is an icon. Current artists such as the Black Crowes invoke its name and that of its leader Steve Marriott with nothing less than reverence. That Humble Pie was co-founded by Peter Frampton, enjoying a notable renaissance of late, provides even greater impetus for a new retrospective of the band's most important ...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Finest Piece of Pie November 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first record by Humble Pie that I listened to in early 1971 and WOW I was knocked back by this great band. I loved the Small Faces, but that was the sixties, and Humble Pie was the seventies, loud and in your face, and they could PLAY !!!

To me, this record is the bridge between "Safe As Yesterday" and the post-Frampton "Smokin." This third album from Humble Pie has the keyboards and acoustic guitars of the first two records and also includes the loud brash guitars of later Pie in their headlining heydaze.

It all begins with that wonderful organ of "Live With Me" and when Pete's guitar kick's in you know you are in for quite a ride. Humble Pie begins their assault and on this first A & M recording classic Pie is born. "Live With Me" features vocals from Steve, Greg and Pete. A Fantastic opener to this fine album. A rare song from Jerry; "Only A Roach" is heap's good fun and "Trouser Snake" well, it rocks. Peter's BIG Number: "Earth & Water Song" is another highlight on a record that is loaded with highlights, another great tune.

Side Two Opens with "I'm Ready" which became a regular in the live show for many years. This one was KILLER in concert. I really like "Theme from Skint", it is a country-sounding number that fits in well on this record. "Skint" shows that Humble Pie could tackle any music form and pull-off a great tune. Things come to a close with "Red Light Mama" & "Sweet Vine", "Mama" is a taste of the heavy guitar rock that shows the future of this band and "Sweet Vine" is the coda of this great record. This band was right on top of their game with the Release of "Humble Pie" ... The seventies were here at last...
HUMBLE PIE ROCKS, NUFF SAID !

5.0 out of 5 stars BETTER REMASTER THAN THE 2007 JAPANESE MINI-SLEEVE February 16, 2007
By BOB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just received a set of the 2007 Humble Pie Japanese mini-sleeves today.

The remastered audio on all of the new Japanese CD's easily exceed the horrid-sounding, 35+ year-old, LP-EQ'd masters of the entire domestic Pie A&M CD catalog.

However, upon an A/B comparison, the new Japanese CD did not stand up to this UK Repertoire remaster.

In the Repertoire, there is definitely more clarity to the entire recording, especially in the percussion.

If you already own the Repertoire disc, don't feel panicked to get the Japanese edition, although, the Japanese sleeve, which replicates the gatefold and woven-textured finish of the original HP LP-album cover, is decidely very cool.

WHAT IS A JAPAN "MINI-LP-SLEEVE" CD?

Have you ever lamented the loss of one of the 20th Century's great art forms, the 12" vinyl LP jacket? Then "mini-LP-sleeve" CD's may be for you.

Mini-sleeve CDs are manufactured in Japan under license. The disc is packaged inside a 135MM X 135MM cardboard precision-miniature replica of the original classic vinyl-LP album. Also, anything contained in the original LP, such as gatefolds, booklets, lyric sheets, posters, printed LP sleeves, stickers, embosses, special LP cover paper/inks/textures and/or die cuts, are precisely replicated and included. An English-language lyric sheet is always included, even if the original LP did not have printed lyrics.

Then, there's the sonic quality: Often (but not always), mini-sleeves have dedicated remastering (20-Bit, 24-Bit, DSD, K2/K2HD, and/or HDCD), and can often (but not always) be superior to the audio on the same title anywhere else in the world. There also may be bonus tracks unavailable elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars love that aubrey beardsley cover... November 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's great to see this album back in circulation. "Humble Pie" is the point where most American kids started with this group. When H.P. joined the A&M line-up, they received much better distribution.

"Humble Pie" introduces the trademark heavy, hard rock that was the group's bread and butter. "As Safe as Yesterday" and "Town and Country", the predecessors, were more eccentric and more acoustic. The Pie continued their signature style of trading vocals--on this one, Marriott, Frampton, and Ridley were even joined by drummer Shirley, who sings the hilarious "Only A Roach."

This album opens with "Live With Me"( not the Rolling Stones tune--- this is a loose jam about the same tempo as Neil Young's "Down By the River"). There are a couple hard rockers ("Red Light Mama Red Hot" and "One-Eyed Trouser Snake Rhumba") that rumble along pretty well, especially "Red Light" with Greg Ridley's 'Peter Gunn' style bass line.

Humble Pie sounds extremely fresh on this album (who did the production?? The liner notes don't say). A big plus is that neither Marriott or Frampton dominates the sound, or gets out of control. A lot of bands featured a 'hard rock' writer, and a softer, 'sweet' writer--in the mode of Lennon and McCartney. With Humble Pie, the writers were usually Marriott (hard stuff) and Frampton (more melodic and gushy). "Earth and Water Song", Frampton's contribution here, is his quintessential song. It's kind of the template for everything of his that came after.

This was the best Pie album done in the studio. Some might argue for "Rock On", but that album had some embarrassing moments--remember "Big George"? This one is good all the way through.
