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 ...

I WAS THERE !!! 21 Jun 2007
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, it's true, I was at Winterland that night and it was indeed quite a SHOW. The doors opened right on time at 6:30 and of course we headed for the floor, This was Humble Pie !!! My group was gonna be down front. Outta the way, Hipsters! This ain't no Quicksilver show, this was mighty English rock at it's finest and we were STOKED, and very STONED.

First band on stage: STEELY DAN, The original band with Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter on guitar & David Palmer on vocals. The Dan ROCKED !!! They played almost everything from their classic first album, and "Do it Again" featured a mean solo of 'Plastic Organ' as Donald Fagen, called it. We all knew these guys would be headliners the next time they came to town. {They DIDN'T tour again for over 20 YEARS!}.

The middle group was the: "Glam Band of the week"...SLADE. I had never heard of this lot before they took the stage BUT, they had had a number one hit in England. So here they be in all their glory and glitter, the lead guitar player looked like a Martian and he had "ODD GOB" written on his silver suit. The band KISS stole lot's of ideas and gimmicks from these boys, I never met a soul who actually bought one of their records, ever.

Well, after almost an hour...TA DAAAA....HUMBLE PIE! And loudly, they cranked out: "Up Our Sleeve", there is only one word to describe this assualt on our senses, POWER! The second tune? What else, could it be but: "4 Day Creep" from the "Live at the Fillmore" double set, when the crowd heard the first notes of this, we all went NUTS. Next, Steve introduced the back-up singers: The Blackberries, and sat at a white Hammond organ, and launched into: "Black Coffee" with a dirty rap directed right at the girls and what he had planned to do to them after the show. None of this can be found on the King Biscuit CD because of the subject matter {it's R rated).
There were a few more soul numbers performed, and just in time Steve jumped up from behind his big organ {his pun, not mine} and got back to playing some serious rock music once again with a KILLER: "Stone Cold Fever" that went on & on. This one was much longer than the "Fillmore" version. "Fever" was majestic and had some really pretty playing in the middle section. The guitar leads by Clem and Steve were amazing! This one needs to see the light of day once again, and alas, it ISN'T on this CD...$#!*

Also, not included is the long, long version of: "Rollin' Stone" they played that night in San Francisco. This one would not make the record due to the lyric content as they are very sexual. This version was way different from the other live version and is also merits an official release.

I am glad "30 Days" made it to the record, BUT, again there is an EDIT here as Steve introduced it with a long funny rap, and that is not included here as well as ANOTHER rap right in the middle of this crowd pleaser. This song could be from another night, and not from the May 6 Winterland show, if it IS Winterland, it's a great edit.

Some of the best stuff is included on this CD. "Halleluah, I Love her So" and "Hot N' Nasty" were SMOKIN'...these are the finest versions of these Pie classics, out there. The show closed with: "Doctor", and again this was a great version. The encore on this night was "Honky Tonk Woman" and then "Roadrunner". It was all over by 2AM {the official Winterland closing time}, if a show ran later than that they closed the doors and it became a "Private Party" until dawn.

I do wish we had the ENTIRE SHOW here, (it would take 2 CD's) because there is less than half of The Pie's set included here. But, I doubt that will ever happen. This was a GREAT NIGHT at Winterland, and I will always remember just How GREAT it was to see this band up-close.
Five STARS...

SCREAMIN' STEVEN AND THE IRRESISTABLE PIE 4 Mar 2000
By cd-heaven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
WOW, this man has lungs of steel. Truly one of the most gifted and talented singers in the 70's, Steve Marriott was a black man trapped in a white man's body. His soul was so deep in the ryhthm & blues that he not only wrote it, he sang it, continuously. Once onstage you here a man possessed by the power of soul. He sang nonstop during his concerts even going as far to sing the inbetween song banter that most fans dont usually want to here, but Steve made it interesting. Kicking this show off with the rocker Up Your Sleeves segueing into 4 Day Creep, Steve and Co. are in fine spirits. C'mon Everybody is just as powerful as the studio version and Humble Pie's version ofHonky Tonk Woman has got to give the Stones a run for their money. Revved up blues like Blues I Believe and Road Runner cement Steve's reputation as a voice to be reckoned with. By the time I Don't Need No Doctor and Hot N' Nasty are played, Steve's been singing his arse off for well over an hour, so if he sounds weak and tried you won't mind, because in that first hour you'll experience something you've likely never had or ever will again in music.

Best Humble Pie available - thanks to King Biscuit 7 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The King Biscuit recordings are hit and miss but this is a real hit. This has more energy than any HP studio recording and is better than their live record, as well. If you like Humble Pie, you NEED this.
Other King Biscuit hits (great stuff) ..Robin Trower.
Misses (avoid wasting $$)..Kingfish, Blackfoot, America

One of the best rock albums of all time 18 Dec 1998
By Smitty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Humble Pie was one the greatest live rock bands ever. They rocked in the now forgotten tradition of the Who and Mountain- loud, brash, and in your face. On studio recordings, the Pie never seemed to capture the essence of the band. Live, Humble Pie was a different story. They rocked with a ferocity rivaled only by the mighty Zeppelin. This record, a concert recorded on the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show, captured the Pie at their peak. Steve Marriot, the band's vocalist/guitarist, sang like a banshee and smashed power chords in the vein of Pete Townshend. Dave Clemson, the band's second guitarist, wailed like no other and was the epitome of the Les Paul-wielding guitar god. Combined with a thunderous rhythm section, the Pie had no peers during this tour in 1973. Marriot sings like a gospel quartet on steroids, even singing his words between songs to the audience. His twin guitar work with Clemson was legendary on this night, and the band rocked with a feral intensity. There are all out rockers, sweet muscular blues, and everything in between. There is even a cranked up, gospel/rock version of the Stone's Honkey Tonk Women. If you're a rock and roll fan, run, don't walk, to the nearest record and buy this CD. Being a long time fan of the Pie, I can say that this is their finest moment on record. Crank it up and go back to a time whem rock was real and drum machines didn't exist! Long live the Pie.

The best Pie ever 28 Oct 2003
By Alastair McLean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This live recording dates from 1973 and has sat in the can for about 20 years before being unleashed. At the time of recording the bands studio albums suffered somewhat from a muffled quality that seemed to take the edge away from the full blooded live sound heard on the Rockin' the Fillmore LP. While Smokin and Eat it are great LPs in their own right, this CD features tracks from both of those, recorded with an incredible clarity so that the Marshalls blare and the vocals wail like you never heard before! This is one of the most awesome live recordings of the 70's, no doubt. It even rivals Motorhead's No Sleep Till Hammersmith as the greatest hard rock live recording of all. No hype here, just full on passionate rock and roll all the way through. Maybe Steve's bar room preacher vocalisings are a bit excessive but you can only marvel at the energy he commits to the whole set - even the bits between tracks! Humble Pie are a much under rated band who are just now being recognised as one of the best rock acts of all. Get hip!!
