(Humble Pie – I Don’t Need No Doctor)

Excited to say that I have some real gems lined up for this theme…

Today it’s the turn of English Rock and Roll supergroup Humble Pie featuring one of the best vocalists to come out of these ‘green and pleasant lands’, original Mod icon, Stephen Peter Marriott…(a Cat who featured last year on the SixSixSix hall of fame).

Recorded at New Yorks famed Filmore East in 1971it was to prove the end of the road for Peter Frampton’s involvement in the band after becoming dissilusioned with Steve’s dominance, (the band was originally put together as a front for Frampton), so this is the band in all their glory covering a Ray Charles song penned by Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson and Jo Armstead.


One thought on “musicology #306

  1. what a Rip-Roarer of a piece….it certainly
    does Steve Marriotts voice justice and the
    band are stonking…I didn’t expect to rave about a Humble Pie piece, and as in 1971 I was knee deep
    in toddlers I dont remember much about their music…but I thought this was FANTASTIC!
