5.0 out of 5 stars I...Don't...Need...No...Doctor, December 9, 2005
This review is from: Rockin the Fillmore (Audio CD)
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.

I saw this Band once with Pete, and then again without him {The second time in May 1973, was the night they recorded the King Biscuit Show from Winterland}.
A top Ten List of the Best Live Records of the 70's would have this on there very close to the Top {Right under "Live at Leeds" on my list}.
But, don't forget; "Recorded Live" by Ten Years After & "Robin Trower Live".
Humble Pie was "The Finest Rock 'N' Roll Band in the Land" ...Hands Down.

I just thought I should let you know that you can re-live that concert by joining (free to listen) wolfgangsvault.com. I'm listening to it now and it's great. Wish I'd been there too. They sell mp3 for $10. Personally, I prefer FLAC so I pass.

wolfsgangsvault is an awesome site. Lots and lots of great classic rock concerts available for listen. You have to pay to download, though.

I agree with the assessment of the record in the top ten. Live at Leeds is just fantastic, and the live Derek and the Dominos LP's and CD's are up there too.
