Very few better live albums than this,
This review is from: Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore (Audio CD)
I am so pleased to see that this timeless album finally is getting the credit it deserves because it is truely one of the greatest live albums and has everything a live album should. For some reason it's hardly mentioned in polls which is a shame because so many more people could appreciate it if they knew about it.
The whole album has a raw bluesy feel created by Steve Marriot's superb vocal performance and the amazing interaction between guitartists Pete Frampton and Marriot who between them dish up several memorable solos and hard driving riffs. The songs change tempo and direction so there is never a dull moment and when you consider 2 tracks, Walk on Guilded Splinters and Rolling Stone, make up nearly 40 mins of the album that is saying something.
After Rockin the Fillmore I bought other Humble Pie ablums but unfortunatly they do nt have the energy and guitar playing this has and yes we all know what happened to Pete Frampton ! But dont let that put you off because this is a really classic live album.
