4.0 out of 5 stars HP ROCKIN' THE WINTERLAND!, 3 Aug 2010
This review is from: Extended Versions (Audio CD)
This CD is a re-issue of the Humble Pie 'In Concert' package from 1995. It was recorded at the Winterland Ballroom , San Francisco in November 1973. It was also broadcast, at least in part, on radio for the King Biscuit Flour Hour radio series. The Pie lineup at the time was Steve Marriott, Greg Ridley, Jerry Shirley and Clem Clempson. They were augmented by a vocal backing trio, the Blackberries, comprised of Vanetta Fields, Clydie King and Billie Barnum.

So, enough of the history, what does this sound like? I can echo other reviewers in saying that it seriously ROCKS. Clempson is incendiary on guitar, and the rhythm section of Ridley and Shirley is as tight as a duck's arse. Marriot screams and hollers throughout as if his life depends on it. It's a bit like 'PERFORMANCE' with nobs on. And all this from the band that bought a groupie from Clearwater!

Docked a star because 'I Don't Need No Docter' is absent from the given tracklist. A mistake perhaps.
