Recently rediscovered Humble Pie via the Smokin'/Performance albums. I'd forgotten what a great band they were. The Definitive Collection is a great overview of their career. Let's face it, any album that kicks off with Natural Born Boogie has to be "Smokin'".

Sensational. Whisked me right back to the early 70s...the high water mark of popular music. Evidence aplenty that the Pie got the best end of the deal in the vocal & guitar departments with Marriott & Frampton. The Faces just got Rod & Ronnie ! A tad under rehearsed? Maybe, but that just adds to the terrific semi-improv style.

Enjoying hearing old favourites. My husband and I love looking back at old catalogue CD's and listening to the music which is what it is all about.

VINE VOICEon 14 May 2015
This is a truly great compilation from a now slightly overlooked band. But this is a shame because these boys, led by the sublime Steve Marriott really gave it all or nothing: a bluesy, soulful sound - well with that voice it had to be all - total commitment to the performance and delivery of every phrase. And the results are stunning - the changes of tempo in some tracks is a thing of wonder.

There are a couple of live tracks, appropriate to the compilation because the Pie were an unbeatable live band. There is a lack of pretension, total belief in what they are doing and this comes over in a great collection of tracks. Live With Me is one of the greatest performances I know on record. There are many moments where Clem's jazz influenced guitar spirals away and you wonder how it will all stay together but it always does.

If you only know Natural Born Boogie - give this a go - and be amazed..
