Humble Pie - S/T - CD
Digitally remastered edition of this 1970 album from the British Blues/Boogie band led by former Small Faces main man Steve Marriott and future solo superstar Peter Frampton. Humble Pie was a transitional album and a harbinger of the band's new, heavier direction. The material was darker than their previous two efforts, with striking contrasts in volume and style - Peter Frampton's gentle 'Earth and Water Song' is buttressed between two of the heaviest tracks on the record, the band composed 'One Eyed Trouser Snake Rumba,' and a cover of Willie Dixon's 'I'm Ready.' Drummer Jerry Shirley contributed a rare lead vocal on his song 'Only a Roach,' a country-tinged rocker. Lemon.
