Slow, terrific, controlled jams, with lots of tension and space between the notes. This is the best live Humble Pie I've ever heard; it beats the bombastic, post-Frampton hard-rock Pie, which I've always had a soft spot for. Later, the band would be plenty fun, loud, over-the-top, faux-soulful, etc. -- but here they're low-key, seriously groovy, unpretentious -- for my money, at the height of their powers.
The take of "Shakey Jake" is a little limp and leaden (my favorite version is the one on "BBC Sessions"), but the four other looooong jams are fantastic, particularly the 21-minute "I Walk on Gilded Splinters." I'm not a big fan of "jammy" music to begin with -- that's why I was first attracted to the tight, arena-rock Pie -- but this music doesn't try to be "authentically" and studiously bluesy, jazzy, etc. (like so many more famous and respected artists of the day) -- yawn! Instead, it's just truly great rock and roll, intense and relaxed at the same time.

Humble Pie is a band with lots of musical talent basically three lead singers and there three part harmonies are wonderful. Steve Marriott had to have one of the coolest bluesy voices in rock history and with Peter Frampton along side on Guitar and Vocal's and the hot rhythm section of Greg Ridley on Bass and Vocals and Jerry Shirley on Drums. This band would slow it down and folk it up and go to a heavy mental thunder in no time. The First song is a very very cool acoustic "For Your Love," I love there version, I could listen to it all day, its so infectious. The second song is a hard rockin version of "Shakin' All Over," this shows the direction that the Pie would move in, toward Heavy rock. Nice Harmonica work. On to the third song "Hallelujah I Love Her So" which became a mainstay for Humble Pie for a long time, shows all the talent of the band, a great rocker, from the old blues traditn, it just rocks, very nice guitar work and shared vocals. Then comes song number four "The Sad Bag Of Shakey Jake" (the bands first written song on this Disk By Steve Marriott) this song is based in the folk tradition, and is a story telling song, The rhythm section is just fantastic in this one, which gives the song a very heavy quality, its like folk meets Heavy 70s metal. Also wonderful shared Vocals and great harmonies. And lastly "I Walk On Gilded Splinters," a slow heavy blues based bombastic rocker" The CD comes with a cool fold out of the concert Poster from the Whisky a GO GO, and has a nice writ up (liner notes) and some cool pictures. The sound quality is very good, there is a little tape hiss from the original recording but not bad at all. I love this live set, its 50 minutes from 1969 that will last forever, a must have for any Humble Pie Fan.

For sure, when this was recorded in 1969, this was a group still trying to find a direction. They weren't yet the live powerhouse they would become a couple of years later. However, the talent within the group, Steve Marriott, Peter Frampton and Greg Ridley shines out throughout this charming live recording.

Hallelujah I Love Her So and I Walk on Gilded Splinters are embryonic. Shakey Jake was a wonderful early single, while For Your Love and Shakin' All Over are clever creative cover versions.

Great music, great sound quality. transport yourself back to 1969

A true Humble Pie fan will have worn out "Performance' and most of the other Pie albums. That is what makes the release of this album such a treat for me. This one is worth having for the last two tunes alone. I found the guitar tone and play of Frampton on 'Gilded Splinters' to be on a par with another live tune from 1969, Jimi Hendrix' "Villanova Junction", at the end of the Woodstock concert. Add in Marriott's wailing, Ridley's incomparable bass lines, and a 17 year old Jerry Shirley drumming for over 20 minutes straight, and you have a real treat! Get it

I bought this CD reminiscing about when live music was more dangerous and less predictable than the arena orientated music we experience now, where we were accustomed to musicians taking risks in their performances.

Alas this CD is an object lesson in self-centredness. From the first track where Stevie Marriot tells the audience to 'shut up' to the final agonising minutes of the long, foggy jam that is 'Walk on Gilded Splinters' , it appears the assembled talent have disappeared up their own collective jacksy.

This particular set predicts the interminable delivery of 'progressive rock' that became familiar in the 70's whose only saving grace was that it resulted in the reactive rise of punk and other celebrations of the short sharp song.

Humble Pie were never very big in the UK and I think this demonstrates why.
