Collecting the band's key A&M-era albums for the first time together in one mighty set, Universal Music Enterprieses releases the limited edition time capsule titled The A&M Vinyl Boxset 1970–1975 from soaring rock super-group Humble Pie.
Formed by Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton in 1969, Humble Pie was one of the first super group rock bands to form, the original band line-up featured lead vocalist and guitarist Steve Marriott from the Small Faces, vocalist and guitarist Peter Frampton from The Herd, former Spooky Tooth bassist Greg Ridley and a 17-year-old drummer, Jerry Shirley.
They are known as one of the late 1960s' first groups and found success on both sides of the Atlantic with such songs as "Black Coffee," "30 Days in the Hole," "I Don't Need No Doctor," and "Natural Born Bugie."
This vinyl box set, compiled in conjunction with Jerry Shirley and Peter Frampton, pulls together all the albums the band recorded for A&M. They have been re-mastered by Kevin Reeves and appear on 180-gram vinyl with replica artwork from the time, including:
Humble Pie (1970)
Rock On (1971)
Performance Rockin' The Fillmore (1971) [2LP]
Eat It (1973) [2LP]
Street Rats (US Version) (1975)
Jerry Shirley noted, "At last we have the extreme privilege, thanks to the hard work of the restoration engineers at Universal, to hear all of our catalogue from A&M in its finest form, on vinyl. Eat It in particular, had sound problems originally that have now been eradicated once and for all, so that all our fans, old and new, can hear it as it was intended to be, a wonderful slice of Humble Pie rock 'n' roll."
Peter Frampton added, "I'm so glad that we finally have this fantastic boxset, on vinyl no less, of Humble Pie's great body of work. Jerry and I have worked together with A&M for some time to get this released. We pay tribute to our two lost brothers, Steve and Greg and hope you enjoy this as much as we did putting it all together."
