Maybe The Best Live Rock Album Ever?
on 6 April 2005
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 band. Recorded on their last night at the Fillmore (a legendary venue in its time) after weeks on the road, Peter Frampton and the late Steve Marriott mesh together as only the very finest players can.
It seems incredible to believe that Frampton was still a teenager when this was recorded. And tragic that Marriott is no longer with us.
Listen to the build up at the start of "I'm Ready", the power in "I Don't Need No Doctor". And I defy you not to want to sing along to "Hallelujah (I Love Her So)".
This is a "Go To" album. If you're a rock fan and feeling down this is guaranteed to put the smile back onto your face.
