These guys were a ball to see and funny!
P. King
Humble Pie was an underrated band and this Live Album is one of the best live albums of the 70s if not ever.
Richard D. Cappetto
Oh, and the sound quality is about as good as it gets too.

If you ever really liked hard rock, I mean REALLY LIKED it, you have to get this LP.

Twin guitars, pounding bass, thundering drums, great, up-tempo songs, fantastic singing and showmanship....yep. I like all that, too.

A couple of the songs filled up a whole side on the double LP this originally resided on. "Rolling Stone" is not the Bob Dylan song, but a rambling, story telling epic about a boy, his girlfriend, and her young at heart mother. The last 3 minutes, however, explode into a hell-for-leather speeded up adrenaline rush of musical intensity. I would listen to the first 13 minutes or so, just anticipating the take-off. Not playing air-guitar on the last part is impossible.

"Hallelujah I Love Her So" is a great cover, all the band members sing verses on it. "I Don't Need No Doctor" is the gem on this album, however. Great riff, great finish.

Steve Mariott was one of the greatest natural showmen in Rock history. I saw the band, minus Peter Frampton plus Clem Clempson, in Little Rock in the 70's. Steve had completely taken over front-man duites. He never spoke a word, he sang everything to us instead. Played the poo out of that guitar as well.

A great live band at the top of their powers. Get it.

"Are you ready? Even you people behind the glass pane at the back of the hall! Are you ready?"

Early today I wrote a review about the Stones Get Yer Ya Ya's Out and mentioned this Humble Pie set. Later today my neighbor was annoying me with what must be 50' subwoofers playing Earth Wind and Fire "Bah-de-ah Bah-de-ah-de-ah-da". I got in the car to escape that sugary racket. I drove over to the Fry's electronics mega-store in Tempe AZ and picked this sucker up. It is blazin' away as I type this. I'll bet I haven't heard this in 30 years. It is SSSSSSSSSMOKIN'!!!

I'm betting that when Steve Marriott was a kid his mother fed him large doses of Ritalin each day to keep him from burning the house down (no disrespect intended, Marriott actually died when his house burned down). There's enough energy here to shut down the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant, plug in and power the entire valley (Phoenix metropolis) with this live session of Pie!

When a 17 year old boy listens to this recording (I'm being autobiographical here folks), he just doesn't have a real appreciation for what a consumate entertainer Steve Marriott really was. What a shame he's gone. I'm listening to this with a more mature set of ears tonight and it really is superb. Marriott and the audience are having a heck of a great time together. He's like a guitar-totin' blues-powered Evangelist calling the audience out to convert! They're all out there singing "I'm a Rollin' Stone" along with Marriott. Now I can see why Mick Jagger said "absolutely no Marriott!" to Keith Richards when Marriott auditioned to take Mick Taylor's place in the Rolling Stones.

Humble Pie was an underrated band and this Live Album is one of the best live albums of the 70s if not ever. This is a must have for any serious 70s hard rock fan. Its worth twice the price alone just to have I don't need No Doctor Live. Steve Marriot was a hell of a good Rock and Blues Singer, Peter Frampton added so much to the vocal Harmonies and with his Guitar. The whole band is fantastic. Get this CD you won't be sorry.

I was fortunate to see the Pie in concert approximately 7 or 8 times between 1970 and 1973. The first time was as the back-up band to Grand Funk at Madison Square Garden in 1970. The absolute frenetic energy this band would expend during a show could send a rocketship to Mars!! "Rockin' The Fillmore" captures this energy at the band's peak.
Their traditional opener "4 Day Creep" gets things up to top speed right out of the gate. Marriott's gospel-like vocal intro to "I'm Ready" is classic Steve and when Shirley's drums kick it all in, it smokes! As an old rock & roll boomer I still love the extended jams and "Gilded Splinters" is to me one of the all-time classics. Great interplay between Pete and Steve on guitar. Overall, however, Frampton's play on his Les Paul steals the show. Man could that kid play at 17 years old! I must admit, "Rolling Stone" absolutely sucks! Check it out on their disc "Rock On" for a great version where they do the tune some justice. Marriott's vocal rambling on this tune is just too much even for this hard-core Pie fan. Of course their show closer, "I Don't Need No Doctor" is trademark Humble Pie. The song is their true essence.
I would love to see this concert on video. What a treat it would be to watch Marriott and Frampton jamming together once again. For a short time this band was truly magical!

I'm listening to this album (that's what we used to call 'em, albums)and reading these reviews warmed by memory. Back in the day, every time we listened to this mainstay of a record, my friend Joe would have to remind us that his buddy was at the Fillmore that night, one of those "people behind the glass plate at the back of the hall." If you asked 100 people on the street today if they ever heard of Humble Pie, 98 would be clueless and the 2 that had would be over 45 years old. Nevertheless kids, every review that calls this one of the "greatest live rock albums of all time" (which appears to be every review) is 110% on the money. It's right there with "Live at Leeds" or anything you else you care to drag up. I've never been a huge fan of Humble Pie's studio records, probably because I became most familiar with "Live" first. The studio stuff's OK, but if you're a rock fan this MUST be in your collection. You don't need to know the band or the songs, if you're 18 or 80 and you love 70's era rock music, you will love this record. It's loud, long, raw and absolutely relentless. Folks, spend your hard earned money wisely. Don't buy junk. Buy this.
