Forget Jagger and the Stones.

Stevie Marriott was THE MAN.

Stevie Marriott and Humble Pie were THE BEST British Hard-Rock band of the early 1970s. Who else but that little dervish with the monster vocals could rush from one end of the stage to the other in seconds, then strut his stuff from back at the drum set to the very front mike to deliver a blistering wail or put down some solid licks off his Black Les Paul? Ever see Jagger do that? Or Stewart?? Roger Daltrey???

Nah, none of them had the energy of Marriott who could do all of what they did and with a guitar strapped to him. He was the consummate frontman - screamin' Steve and played guitar with wild abandon.

"Smokin'" found Marriott at the peak of his powers and of his career. He proved, on this album, that even with the departure of Peter Frampton, the Pie was a Rock and Roll force to be reckoned with. "Black Lebanese, It Got You Weak in Your Knees. Newcastle Brown..." - and who can forget "You Take A Greasy Whore Add A Rolling Dance Floor" - Heh Heh - the lyrics of that great rock and roll song "Thirty Days in the Hole" which epitomizes the rock power of this album.

But wait there's more - much more. Besides "30 Days" there was "Hot and Nasty" with Marriott wailing on both voice and organ, tasty licks provided by Clem Clempson, the solid bass and drums of Greg Ridley and Jerry Shirley, and backing vocals courtesy of Stephen (yep, that's right) Stills and Rick "Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Bad Company" Wills; that raucous version of Eddie Cochran's "C'mon Everybody", Ridley and Marriott's "Sweet Peace and Time", and Ridley (with Clem) on "Old Time Feeling".

GOOD GAWD Y'ALL!!!!! I'm browsin' the reviews to this album and there is a certain nuance that they're not quite catching-THIS IS ONE OF THE THE GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME!!! STEVE MARRIOT IS A GOD!!!! Like the Black Crowes? Like Led Zeppelin? Do your ears perk up to a rude bluesy refrain? Then put this CD on and BOW AT THE FEET OF THE MASTER! The two greatest blues rock singers of all time are Steve Marriot and ..... STEVE FRIGGIN' MARRIOT. "Thirty Days In The Hole" I want to do drugs! "Roadrunner" I want to have casual sex! "Hot 'n Nasty" I want to have casual sex with girls on drugs! STOP READING THIS!!!! Buy this album and shut up already! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??????

This domestic "Smokin'" CD, along with the rest of the domestic Pie discs, are still the same crappy, 35+ year old, digitized vinyl-EQ'd masters, which all sound like the flat audio from an 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. They are GLORIOUS. It's so great to finally hear all the great Smokin' tracks in properly mastered audio.

You will not believe the transformation of the Pie rhythm section in the new mastering; Greg Ridley THUNDERS, and you can hear every bass note so distinctly it sounds like you're standing right next to his cabinet.

Be aware, however, that there was a 2002 previous Japan "Smokin'" mini-sleeve that was NOT remastered. The blue obi pictured above is the 2002 release. I have loaded the image of the 2007 version, and its black obi, above.

Four of the five 2007 Japanese remasters are now the audio benchmarks for these titles: The 2006 UK Repertoire version of the third album, "Humble Pie", definitely has more clarity than the Japanese version, especially in the drums.

Link to the 2007 Japanese remaster of Smokin'.

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

Oh yes, Humble Pie was a hot band in the seventies, and this album is a consistent, groovy, hard rockin' effort. It is a satisfying CD from beginning to end, I only wish the jam in "Road Runners" could be stretched much more (you know, the time limitations of the original vynil format.
If you know the band, then you know what to expect: blues-based rock 'n' roll with great vocals by Steve Marriott. I read somewhere that Humble Pie was the "missing link between Janis Joplin and ACDC", and it makes some sense. But in this album, you're gonna find much more of the blues, even though "Sweet Peace and Time" is a hell of a hard rock slab.
There are great rockin' and uplifting songs: " Hot and Nasty", "C'mon everybody", "30 Days in the hole". That's precisely the kind of songs the Black Crowes try to write. Well, the original is very good.
"You're so good to me" is a ballad. "Old Time Feeling" a pub acoustic blues (brit pastiche, but that's ok). "I wonder" is a highly electrified, thunderous-ending slow-blues (running 8 minutes, there's time for the harmonica solo). "Road Runners" is funky and "The Pusher" rocks hard, in a slow to medium tempo.
The vocals are always hot, the guitar riffs and solos right to the point, and some keyboard makes "Hot and Nasty" and "Road Runner" even spicier.
That's it. Great fun for people who like seventies rock'n'roll.
