The Pie Hit Form
on 8 February 2006
Following the departure of Peter Frampton, Humble Pie released Smokin' and what an album this is!! Steve Marriott really tkes control on this prodution and takes the band in his bluesy/rock direction.
Great vocals from Marriott and great riffs from himself and Clemson. Really enjoyed this album and it is clear that Humble Pie have influenced many of todays artists such as The Black Crowes, Lenny Kravitz, Paul Weller as well as many other pretenders.
There will never be another like Steve Marriott, he was a great vocalist and he knew how to knock out a good tune too. Its a shame that Humle Pie never really continued this form and that ultimately Marriott was taken away when he still had so much to give.
You will be pleasantly suprised by this album and it shows Steve Marriott at his best and on top of his game.
