Humble Pie / Performance: Rockin’ the Fillmore: Complete Recordings

fillmore

Humble Pie (featuring Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton) recorded four albums and several singles before achieving their U.S. breakthrough with their 1971 the double-live set Performance: Rockin’ The Fillmore.

The album was drawn from four shows played over two consecutive nights at the Fillmore East, and although only seven tracks were issued, the album ran for over an hour, thanks to some lengthy interpretations, including a 24-minute rendition of Dr John’s I Walk On Gilded Splinters (later covered by Paul Weller).

Omnivore Recordings / Universal have gathered all four shows from these performances and packaged them into this ‘Complete Recordings’ four-CD box set. There is 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 28 May. In total four hours of music across four CDs.

This has been mixed and mastered from the original multi-tracks under the supervision of Peter Frampton and Jerry Shirley.

    The 70’s live albums were the ultimate in self indulgence, double live albums in which bands could “stretch” out to extended jams on certain tracks that would be their and eventually fan favorites. I for one enjoyed
    every minute of them! Over the years there have been classic live albums, think of Ten Years After “Recorded Live”, Thin Lizzy “Live And Dangerous
    Deep Purple “Made In Japan” and their 3 disc set of all shows recorded in Japan, UFO “Strangers In The Night”, Lynyrd Skynyrd “One More for/from The Road” and finally one of my faves Humble Pie’s “Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore” in all it’s glory, from what Peter Frampton & Jerry Shirley have suggested it’s a sonic “boom” of remixed
    album that sounds incredible, can’t quite recall but in one of the live tracks there was a little “blip”. It will be interesting to see if that’s been
    “lifted” from the original tapes or still remains, can’t wait!
