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 ...

If I had to list the top 10 rock albums of all time this one would be there.

A very accessible rock album, and a very important part of Britrock's evolution.

If you can possibly purchase this edition, it is highly recommended you do so.

It has always amazed me why this piece of classic rock music was not on everybody's top ten lists. Steve Marriott's voice was at its prime. Peter Frampton's guitar work is the best he has ever done. Buy this now, check out "Stone Cold Fever" and then tell me it's not one the best rock songs you have ever heard. This album blows "Smokin'" away, there is no comparison. Give it a chance you won't be sorry.

This is Humble Pie at their studio recording peak. From the opening booming and ringing chords of Frampton's anthemic "Shine On", it's obvious that the listener is in for a hell-of-a-ride through some eclectic and classic 70's rock. Everything from a taste of country rock ("Sour Grain") to blues ("Rolling Stone") to jazz-rock ("Strange Days"). The talent and abilities of this band at this point in their career was as good as it gets in rock & roll. The interplay between Frampton's and Marriott's vocals and guitar playing was unsurpassed at the time.
I had seen The Pie live 2 or 3 times prior to the release of this recording. The stride they hit with the release of "ROCK ON" made you think they could make great music forever (as The Stones continue to do). This disc should be a MUST LISTEN to any serious rock fan. Every song is a bit of true magic.

After the first two English-country tinged import albums, Humble Pie went under contract with A&M and delivered two knockout albums before Frampton went solo. It may sound unbelievable, but in its time this band was competing with the likes of the Rolling Stones for rock supremacy, and really had some of what it took to do that. Marriott and Frampton had a dual vocal and guitar attack thing going, and the backbone was solid (ex-Spooky Tooth bassist Greg Ridley and a kid named Jerry Shirley on drums). They were arena big, and crunched huge, "Stone Cold Fever" is a tank.

Frampton really dashed the band, because while Marriott was a star in his own light, like any NBA fan knows, you need two stars to win championships. And this is really as far as they got, Marriott's follow-ups were kind of sludgy without Frampton's ringing guitar work, and eventually the band faded away. But if you go through the trouble of getting your hands on the first two imports and the first two US releases, you'll have four albums of some really hot music, for the day at least. And while you're at it, pick up Frampton's first four albums as well . . . before his hair went pink.

Amazon has it dead wrong. This CD HAS been re-issued by the Rebound Records label, but it has NOT been remastered. This disc, along with the rest of the domestic Pie releases, are still the same crappy, 35+ year old, digitized vinyl-EQ'd masters, all which sound like the flat audio from AM radio: No bottom, no definition, no soundstage, nothing.

*** HOWEVER ***

On 2/14/07, Universal Japan released the entire Humble Pie A&M catalog, plus the "Marriott" solo album, with brand new, awesome remastering and mini-sleeve packaging. These remasters are GLORIOUS, some of the best I've ever heard. It's so great to finally enjoy these albums in properly mastered audio.

Four of the five Japanese remasters are now the audio benchmarks for these titles: The 2006 UK Repertoire version of the third album "Humble Pie", however, definitely has more clarity than the Japanese version, especially in the drums.

The initial run of the five central Pie titles (Humble Pie, Rock On, Performance, Smokin' & Eat It) have already sold out in Japan, so don't delay in getting yours.

Link to the 2007 Japanese remaster of Rock On

2009 UPDATE: Japan has re-released the mini-sleeve remaster!

2012 UPDATE: After issuing these multiple times since 2007 in mini-sleeves, Japan has now issued this fabulous remaster (and the other 4 HP '07 remasters) in less expensive jewel case form.

Energised, stylish and capturing the contemporary rock dynamic of that era, Humble Pie were probably at their creative peak when this album was released. The band was more than simply proficient by now, and with talent like Steve Marriot and Peter Frampton on board, the playing was tight and exciting. Jerry Shirley and Greg Ridley give solid rhythm section support, and come through well on the mix. Even on my original vinyl album, the production quality shines through from the 1971 recording.

The song quality is consistently high, and songs appear to be sequenced so as to provide a build in tension and excitement. A very accessible rock album, and a very important part of Britrock's evolution.

I fervently hope that "Rock On" is slated for re-release as an SACD. Humble Pie was an excellent band and in an era of excellent bands it tends to get overlooked. I can only hope that a later generation of musicians finds what a rich vein of music this band supplied.
There's some great jammin' here with Steve Marriot leading the band and Peter Frampton on board. One forgets just what a great guitarist, songwriter and singer Frampton was and just how much a veteran he was before "Comes Alive" catapulted him to stardom.
Absolutely recommended!
