When Steve Marriott left the Small Faces (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2012) to launch a new band in 1968, expectations were high. Marriott teamed up with 18-year old guitarist Peter Frampton, already a U.K. star through his work with The Herd. Completing the lineup were bassist Greg Ridley from Spooky Tooth, and 17-year old drummer Jerry Shirley, who Marriott had used as a session player for Andrew Loog Oldham’s label, Immediate Records.
Humble Pie recorded four albums and several singles before achieving its U.S. breakthrough with their 1971 double-live set Performance: Rockin’ The Fillmore. Drawn from four shows played over two consecutive nights at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore East, Performance captured a red-hot band firing on all cylinders, distilling the crowd-pleasing heavy blues-rock style that had come to dominate the Brit foursome’s repertoire, and which would help to lay the foundation for the sound that would soon become known as heavy metal. Performance caught on in a big way with American listeners, hitting #21 on the U.S. album chart and becoming the Pie’s first Gold album.
Now, for the first time, Omnivore Recordings has gathered all four shows from Humble Pie’s historic Fillmore East stand in this lovingly packaged four-CD box set. No editing or resequencing—just the four sets as they were played on May 28 and 29, 1971. The seven tracks that comprised the original album are joined here by 15 previously unissued performances—including the never-before-heard complete first set from May 28!
