On To Victory
Artist: Humble Pie
Format: Vinyl

More Info:

Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Formed by Steve Marriott in 1969 after the break-up of Small Faces, Humble Pie epitomized the British rock supergroups emerging at the turn of the decade. With the charismatic Marriott taking on frontman duties, he enlisted Peter Frampton (then of The Herd) on guitar, Spooky Tooth's Greg Ridley on bass and a teenage Jerry Shirley on drums. The group released two beloved albums on Small Faces' former label, Immediate, before making a switch to A&M in 1970 and working up a harder, blues-rock sound that would earn acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. After a five year hiatus Humble Pie jumped to ATCO for 1980's On To Victory with a new blues-based boogie line-up featuring Marriott, Shirley, vocalist/guitarist Bobby Tench (The Jeff Beck Group) and bassist Anthony "Sooty" Jones. Includes the single "Fool for a Pretty Face."
