This live recording dates from 1973 and has sat in the can for about 20 years before being unleashed. At the time of recording the bands studio albums suffered somewhat from a muffled quality that seemed to take the edge away from the full blooded live sound heard on the Rockin’ the Fillmore LP. While Smokin and Eat it are great LPs in their own right, this CD features tracks from both of those, recorded with an incredible clarity so that the Marshalls blare and the vocals wail like you never heard before! This is one of the most awesome live recordings of the 70’s, no doubt. It even rivals Motorhead’s No Sleep Till Hammersmith as the greatest hard rock live recording of all. No hype here, just full on passionate rock and roll all the way through. Maybe Steve’s bar room preacher vocalisings are a bit excessive but you can only marvel at the energy he commits to the whole set – even the bits between tracks! Humble Pie are a much under rated band who are just now being recognised as one of the best rock acts of all. Get hip!!
