  • I was fortunate to see the Pie in concert approximately 7 or 8 times between 1970 and 1973. The first time was as the back-up band to Grand Funk at Madison Square Garden in 1970. The absolute frenetic energy this band would expend during a show could send a rocketship to Mars!! “Rockin’ The Fillmore” captures this energy at the band’s peak. Their traditional opener “4 Day Creep” gets things up to top speed right out of the gate. Marriott’s gospel-like vocal intro to “I’m Ready” is classic Steve and when Shirley’s drums kick it all in, it smokes! As an old rock & roll boomer I still love the extended jams and “Gilded Splinters” is to me one of the all-time classics. Great interplay between Pete and Steve on guitar. Overall, however, Frampton’s play on his Les Paul steals the show. Man could that kid play at 17 years old! I must admit, “Rolling Stone” absolutely sucks! Check it out on their disc “Rock On” for a great version where they do the tune some justice. Marriott’s vocal rambling on this tune is just too much even for this hard-core Pie fan. Of course their show closer, “I Don’t Need No Doctor” is trademark Humble Pie. The song is their true essence.I would love to see this concert on video. What a treat it would be to watch Marriott and Frampton jamming together once again. For a short time this band was truly magical!
