Eat it - Humble Pie

Eat it
For fans of bluesy, hard-charging boogie rock, the legendary band Humble Pie is an icon. Current artists such as the Black Crowes invoke its name and that of its leader Steve Marriott with nothing less than reverence. That Humble Pie was co-founded by Peter Frampton, enjoying a notable renaissance of late, provides even greater impetus for these new reissues of the bands classic albums
In 1969, Marriott, who had left Small Faces, and Frampton, formerly of the Herd, joined with ex-Spooky Tooth bassist Greg Ridley and drummer Jerry Shirley. Humble Pie's first single, ‘Natural Born Woman’ (aka ‘Natural Born Boogie’) hit the U.K. Top 10 and led to its debut album, As Safe As Yesterday Is. Humble Pie live, however, was explosive, loud and raucous. Frampton left after the tour, replaced by Dave "Clem" Clempson, A year later, Humble Pie disbanded. Marriott and Shirley briefly reformed the group in the '80s but accidents and ill health plagued Marriott and the band.
The album titleEat Itmeans "Dig it", Each side of the original double album was different: Side 1 featuresSteve Marriott pennedrock and roll; Side 2 has classic R&B covers; Side 3 is a collection of acoustic Steve Marriott songs; finally Side 4 features Humble Pie live in concert.
This album showcases the dynamic diversity and talent of Steve Marriott's gritty bluesy vocals with some funky soul mixed in throughout along with straight ahead blistering rockers. The band is right on and they deliver an extremely energetic powerhouse combination on this double album that overall ranks with their best

24K
The Band of Joy are best known as the outfit that gave Robert Plant and John Bonham their leg-up on the stairway to Zeppelin. While that unrecorded line-up relied on its live reputation to become a Midlands legend, a revised Band of Joy finally made it to the studio in the late 1970s, having re-grouped to play benefit gigs for the families of a local band involved in a fatal motorway crash.

The eponymous album which followed was reissued in the Summer of 2005 by Cherry Red (Band Of Joy - CDMRED 281) The band were Paul Lockey on vocals, Kevyn Gammond on guitar, Mike Chetwood on keyboards, John Pasternak on bass and Francesco Nizza on drums. This second album was recorded for Polydor but was never released by them. There was also the problem that Robert Plant saw the band's name as his and told the record company that they shouldn't use it. ‘24K’ eventually emerged through the independent Thunderbolt label after the group had split in 1979. Keyboard player Chetwood went on to join T’Pau and Kevyn Gammond and Robert Plant linked up again in the late 1990s in ‘fun’ band Priory of Bryon. When Robert Plant's ‘Best Of’ album ‘Sixty Six To Timbuktu’ emerged in 2003 there were two of the original Band of Joy demos on it.

Live
The legendary Curved Air recorded a string of innovative & classic albums in the 70'sto great acclaim, enjoying a global hit with Back Street Luv in 1971. Fronted by singer Sonja Kristina and featuring the violinist Darryl Way, by 1972 the line-up began to fracture and by 1973 the band had ground to a halt. Way formed the innovative Wolf, but in 1975 the Curved Air came together once more to tour Europe. The resulting live album is perhaps one of the bands finest, documenting all of their classic material. The Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re mastered from the original master tapes and is presented with a booklet featuring a new essay and photographs. See Curved Air at the Isle Of Wight festival in June 2008. Our Price: £10.95

Chapters And Phases : The Complete Albums 1973 – 1975
Released on 28/09/09 . Lagos-based trio BLO shook the Nigerian scene to its foundations with their their Afro-rooted rock music. Their live debut in December 1972 found 10,000 new converts chanting we want BLO over and over again. Their Afro-delia looked far afield for inspiration: drummer Laolu Akintobi said we were listening to Grand Funk Railroad and The Isley Brothers and thought we should be able to do this in an African way. A further inspiration wasGinger Baker for whom both Akintobi and BLO sBerkley Jones played and toured with in 1971.

BLO’s first two albums, 1973’sChapter One and 1975’sPhase 2, are amazing fusions of traditional rhythms and American psychedelia that evoke a spacier Tago Mago -era Can. Original copies of each sell for £200 and up. Chapter One’shighlights include the psychedelic instrumental Miss Sagit with its snakey fuzz guitar. Equally far out is Chant To Mother Earth, where a hypnotic three-note bass line tops shuffling drums, choppy guitar and distant chanted vocals. Phase 2’swah wah guitar and funk takes their Afro-delia onto the dance floor. Press reports of the time describe BLO as Africa’s first rock band. They had an electronic cosmic sound that deserves total world-wide attention
