I keep asking myself how many times did I almost spend the $50 and buy a second hand copy of the original pressing of On To Victory? When someone gave me the heads-up that not only was this CD going to be reissued, but bundled with Go For The Throat, and priced below $15 . . . well, let’s just say I was pretty darn happy. Humble Pie made some great music during this era (early 80’s). The band had lots of ideas, energy, and talent. I saw them at least 3 times during various tours to support these releases and I am THRILLED to finally have both of them on CD. If you love Humble Pie and Steve Marriott (not to mention Bobby Tench on guitar and vocals, journeyman drummer Jerry Shirley, and “Booty” Jones holding down the back beat), then throw down a few fins and get this release. You’ll love it.
Technical note: This seems to be a straight release rather than remastered. Given how many older recording remasters end up sounding overly echoed or compressed, I’d say good choice.
