iTunes Review

Though Humble Pie never held onto its reputation like, say, The Allman Brothers or The Grateful Dead, the band rocked the Fillmore all the same and issued a classic double-live album that in 1971 was taken as seriously as Led Zeppelin and more seriously than Black Sabbath. Bands were built to jam in those days, and Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton worked up a lather worthy of the genre. Humble Pie entertained Fillmore crowds with two shows a night on May 28 and 29, 1971, with each audience getting a mild variation of the general set. The band had been decent on record, but it took a live album to bring out such elongated takes of “I Walk on Gilded Splinters,” “I’m Ready,” “I Don’t Need No Doctor," and “Rollin’ Stone.” It took another 42 years for these four shows to appear in their entirety in crisp, remastered audio. Now, Humble Pie fans can determine which takes they would’ve given final approval to for the live album. 

Customer Reviews

Humble Pie Rockin' The Fillmore

A must buy just for Steve Marriott's vocals alone. Frampton and Marriott's guitar licks are a bonus. One of the finest live albums ever. The energy of the band comes through in the music. All of the songs are favorites, but especially love Rollin' Stone, I'm Ready, Stone Cold Fever, and I Don't Need No Doctor...their signature song. Rest in peace Marriott and Ridley.

Most Underrated Live Album

Humble Pie was another awesome classic rock band that was simply forgotten. This album probably would of been next to Who's Live at Leeds in popularity, but it just wasn't as recognized as much. Then Frampton goes and breaks off of The Pie, goes solo and comes out with one of the best selling live albums, Frampton Comes Alive, what a coincidence.

ONE OF THE VERY BEST

Peter Frampton would later go on and record what was then "the biggest selling album of all time" with "Frampton Comes Alive", and for sheer numbers alone that was an impressive feat considering that he left his balls and soul behind on this recording. Very few live albums manage to capture the essence of the experience, and this is easily one of that elite and elusive group. Forget listening to the 18 minutes of bloat on "I Walk On Guilded Splinters" replete with the record company's bleeping of what was deemed inappropriate language (yes, even way back then). I played this through my ipod setup for a bunch of people who weren't even born when this was recorded and they were impressed. (Which impressed me because nothing they had on THEIR ipods was worth listening to.) This stands shoulder to shoulder with the best live recordings - with Woodstock with Rock n Roll Animal, and it still sounds fresh. If you don't have this in your collection you need to have your head examined.
