Boston 1972 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Boston Music Hall, Boston, MA; September 17, 1972. Fairly to very good audience recording. Slight bleeding in the vocals.


When Steve Marriott of The Small Faces and Peter Frampton of The Herd departed from their bands to form a new band, Humble Pie, in 1969, the two British musicians were hoping to put their days as “teen stars” behind them. As guitarists, singers, and songwriters, they both were seeking to play music that better expressed their talents. In addition to Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton, the new band had Greg Ridley (formerly of Spooky Tooth) on bass and Jerry Shirley on drums.

In 1971, Peter Frampton left Humble Pie to seek his own musical fortune, and Clem Clempson (formerly of Colosseum) was soon brought in on guitar. The next album by Humble Pie, Smokin’, was released in 1972 and included “Hot ‘n’ Nasty” and “30 Days in the Hole,” two of the strongest tracks that they had ever recorded. The band toured relentlessly in those years, particularly in the US, and their lusty performances were among the best that any band of the period had to offer. In the Bay Area, Humble Pie appeared at both the Berkeley Community Theatre and Winterland during 1972.

Thanks to Les_Mountain for sharing the show at Dime.

Les_Mountain noted:

They played two times in Boston in 1972. This one is in much better quality and ranks in top two Humble Pie boots out of 17 I’ve got. I got it several years ago from zeppelin59’s site. He used to have many great Led Zeppelin and Humble Pie boots, but has stopped hosting them. Whoever recorded, and shared this show deserves huge “Thank You” from me. If you like Humble Pie, you have to hear this. Obviously this is with Dave Clempson on guitar.

    By loma prieta on Oct 19, 2016

  5. Everyone else and Moron are one and the same , as for BoomBoom , don’t understand why he gets so much flak , He complicated the Humble Pie post and did not insult anyone , in fact he never does unlike Everyone else , err I mean Moron

    By Eli on Oct 19, 2016

  6. Mancini, you clearly are retarded!

    By Mancini Is A MORON on Oct 19, 2016

  7. was fortunate enough to see Humble Pie a number of times, man that little Stevie Marriot could rock up a storm! thanks again guys

    By sluggo on Oct 19, 2016

  8. Thanks big o. Steve Mariott was one of the greatest voices in rock though he never got his due in the u.s. Does anyone have his 1976 solo album, I think its just titled Mariott? If so what do you think of it?

    By liquid99 on Oct 19, 2016

  9. hahaha eli, no wonder you always defend mancini!!!!!

    By liquid99 on Oct 19, 2016

  10. people at big o-look at the way boom boom mancini, carlos cuevas, eli, victor, and tony c use commas. they use-space comma space, and are all obviously and clearly the same person. there are probably other names as well. boom boom, eli, carlos or whatever the hell you call yourself you are perfect proof how 1 asshole can really screw up a site, again what is wrong with you????

    By liquid99 on Oct 19, 2016

  11. holy crap, if you look back at past shows and look for that unusual way of using space comma space , like this… find that under some shows MOST of the comments were by the same person using an array of names!

    By liquid99 on Oct 19, 2016

  12. That’s pretty far fetched , Liquid , How do we know fact from coincidence ? No way to know for sure , It’s been said that Moron and everyone else are the same , look at the ha has and both have used that phrase , Some have said Darth is Corey M and many other people , Maybe Darth is behind this whole thing but I doubt it . Your comment basically refutes the notion that there are not that many wackos out here , I feel that there are many nuts , no pun intended Moron , How do we really know that Barth , Sluggo , Chuck , Cool Hand , Bruce S and many of the quote unquote normal people are not the same , There really is no way to know for sure and who cares anyway

    By Sonny Larricy on Oct 19, 2016

  13. i always write like this…don’t confuse me with those losers…PLEASE…

    BigO many thanks for THE PIE…love Marriott’s pipes!

    By metaljohn333 on Oct 20, 2016

  14. At the risk of being confused with any other Eric’s , as I’ve seen that name here also , How can a blog with such great diverse music attract such crazies and losers ? I believe Chuck and some others have suggested doing away with the comments , I feel they add nothing , I expect to be attacked for my statement , thanks for the music but this comments section sucks

    By Eric S on Oct 20, 2016

  15. not far fetched at all, just look back thru past shows you see it again and again and its unusual grammatically…you’ll see exactly what I mean

    By liquid99 on Oct 20, 2016

  16. no need to do away with the comments, just make it so bored/crazy people cant use multiple names. there are shows where most of the posts are from the same person using multiple tags, taking both sides, ever wonder about those idiotic topics that wont go away? look for yourselves its mind boggling

    By liquid99 on Oct 20, 2016

  17. sonny larricy and eric s-same deal with the commas hahahaha don’t you understand that it exposes you?

    By mcm on Oct 20, 2016

  18. The Ha ha’s expose you Mr Moron/ MCM / Liquid / Everyone else , you need to re figure your conspiracy BS

    By Sonny Larricy on Oct 20, 2016

  19. The inmates are definitly running the asylum here,I think all of you are crazy with your bullshit theories .whatever happened to talking about music? on second thought expressing an opinion or having a take will only get shit stirred up so why even bother with that.Just say thanks for the post and dont add anything else to the comment and im sure you will be fine.Too many nutty people on this site

    By Antonio on Oct 20, 2016

  20. Antonio,I only commented once and now im accused of being someone else.I guess we need to watch our commas now ,How stupid can you get,anyway at least rhe music here is great

    By Eric S on Oct 20, 2016

  21. look at you trying to get your commas straight, its kinda funny! the other thing this has shown me is just how few posters there are overall other than me, you and like 20 others, not a lot going on here anymore. whatever you call yourself, have fun doing whatever it is you’re doing because ive had enough of big o’s site its all yours. hahaha give em hell I guess you weirdo

    By liquid99 on Oct 20, 2016

  22. Liquid99, Marriott by Steve Marriott is divided into a British side (hard rocking and very good) and an American side (slick ballads and a couple good tunes). Another cd of note is Steve Marriott and the All-stars “Clear through the night.”

    By RollingStoner on Oct 20, 2016

  23. Hey Big O;
    I never thought I would consider a concept such as this: Boom Boom is so incredibly stupid that I think I miss our bad boy Darth. Well, no. That is just too extreme a thought.

    By Dubious141 on Oct 20, 2016

  24. Watch your commas people, Liquid 99/the moron/ everyone else/many others is trying to deflect attention away from himself , Look at all of the ha ha ha’s

    By Eli on Oct 20, 2016

  25. Please return Darth and all will be forgiven , Compared to these crazies you were a saint

    By Sonny Larricy on Oct 20, 2016

  26. Watch these nuts on your chin, Eli. You’ve been outed!


    By Eli Moron on Oct 20, 2016

  27. You are the one who has been outed , Moron err Liquid 99 / everyone else among many others , give us some more HaHa”s

    By Eli on Oct 20, 2016

  28. Now, you boys are gettin’ all riled up over nothing, especially over Boom Boom whenever he Boom Booms something stupid.

    Y’all need to get together over a nice plate of hot sausages and talk out your differences.

    By Sausages on Oct 21, 2016

  29. Where is Darth when we need him badly? Maybe he’s retired….

    By Tony Lauber on Oct 22, 2016

  30. its best to ignore trolls.
