5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe The Best Live Rock Album Ever?
I've owned a copy of this album since I was a school boy (embarassingly over 30 years ago).
There have been times in my life when I haven't played it for several years.
But no matter how long since I last heard it, as soon as the first notes ring out...
Quite simply, one of the VERY best live albums. Humble Pie, as tight and as rocking as you could ever imagine a...

2.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but boring to listen to
Clearly lots of people adore this record, and this is why I was swayed into getting a copy. The sound is good, with excellent, punchy bass and crunchy guitars, and the reference made elsewhere to the vocal style of early AC/DC is not too wide of the mark. Unfortunately, the songs are dull and go on for ever. This is not interesting extended jams in the style of the...

4.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Rock at its Best,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)This Album I suggest, answers the much asked-question of what defines 'Hard Rock'.
I have come across many reviews in which the term 'Unique' has been used to
describe the style and unrestrained raw power of the music on this disc.
In regard to style it is impossible not to hear the influence of bands such as
'Cream' and 'Ten Years After'. In the case of raw unrestrained power it could
well be claimed that this recording borders on the unique.
From the opening track it becomes obvious that a kind of overwhelming musical
addiction will soon follow. This addiction will only apply to people whose
musical DNA consists of a longing for uncompromising Hard Rock on a very grand scale.
This Album is a must for anyone interested in Classic Live Recordings from Rock music's
greatest period or for anyone who has ever wondered why the sheer entertainment value
of this period is unmatched by any other musical period outside the 18th Century.
5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)I'd long forgotten this album. The vinyl sits unloved in a box in the loft and hasn't seen the light of day for many years. Just came across this on Amazon and at £5 thought it worth a go...... wow it brings back memories.
There is something about a live album that studio versions just can't touch. Close your eyes and you're almost there........
5.0 out of 5 stars As good as I remembered,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)Watched Humble Pie at a free concert in Hyde Park around the time this album was released. The set on the album is almost identical to the one I saw. Bought it at the time on vinyl and hadn't played it for many years. Got it out again a few weeks ago after hearing a Small Faces record on the radio. It was as good as I remembered and bought back some good memories. Had to buy the CD so I could listen in the car. For me there is nothing better than live music when driving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can you hear me rockin?,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)At their humble best - just ignore the rest. Live music as it should be - musicians playing well together. Rock has soul too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hallelujah,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)Just got this to listen to I Dont Need No Doctor and Hallelujah
I Love Her So.
Just these two tracks are all I need from the set.
Time has not dimmed them.
Fave story about Marriott is from Jerry Shirley's autobiography -
Marriott hated the Moody Blues especially their hit Knights in White Satin
which he used to refer to as "tights that I've shat in!"
Best Seat in the House is worth reading for the lowdown on Pie
5.0 out of 5 stars It's only Rock'n'Roll (but I like it),
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)Great album by a group almost forgotten, but was famous for the participation of a young Peter Frempton, blues rock with high potential, the masterpiece of the group.
All covers, all long pieces with great guitar solos.
Sound between the Free and the Faces.
5.0 out of 5 stars Humble Pie: Rockin' the Fillmore,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)Wow! This brought back some great memories! If you like your rock straightforward with a blues accent, you really ought to give this a listen. Top track: "I don't need no Doctor", power chords plus the incredible Steve Marriott. Give it a go!
