Humble Pie - 1973 - . . .for all you do, this Bud's for you!

A little something special for Labor Day Weekend. A live concert from Humble Pie, recorded at The Country Club in Reseda (San Fernando Valley to you non-L.A. residents) from 1973.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is one of the last concerts with Peter Frampton before he made an exit to form Frampton's Camel and go mega-Platinum in the process. I'm always reminded that Humble Pie were often referred to as "the first band known as Heavy Metal" - not entirely sure about that, since a few bands from San Francisco in the mid-sixties certainly qualified for that title. But in any event, Humble Pie were non-stop, high-energy and drenched in sweat. Way too many good shows during their career and I'm sure a lot of people have attributed their middle-aged deafness from one of two Humble Pie concerts of their youth.

In short, they were great and if you've never heard them before (but probably heard about them) here is your chance to plug into what everyone has been talking about.

I don't think I even need to remotely remind you to play this loud. The sound is pretty good.

Can you help us out?
