HUMBLE PIE’S 'ROCKIN’ THE FILLMORE' COMING FROM OMNIVORE RECORDINGS EXPANDED TO FOUR-DISC SET!

RELEASE DATE OCTOBER 29th 2013

MIXED UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF MEMBERS PETER FRAMPTON AND JERRY SHIRLEY



Omnivore Recordings is set to release legendary super group and seminal rock act Humble Pie’s Rockin’ The Fillmore for the first time ever as a four-disc box set on October 29. The deluxe compilation was produced by original members Peter Frampton and Jerry Shirley, with A&R coordination from Bill Levenson and Cheryl Pawelski and detailed liner notes by Tim Cohan. The set features all four shows exactly as they were played on May 28 and 29, 1971 from the band’s historic Fillmore East stand with no editing or re-sequencing. The seven tracks that comprised the original album are joined here by 15 previously unissued performances—including the never-before-heard complete first set from May 28. Full track listing below.

“My God, it just took my breath away,” Shirley said of hearing the new mixes by engineer Ashley Shepherd. “You feel like you’re sitting in the Fillmore East, five or six rows back. In the quiet bits, you could hear a pin drop, and in the loud bits, you can almost feel the room shaking. And all four shows caught Steve at the absolute zenith of his powers. It’s astonishing. I’m only sorry that he, Greg, and Dee aren’t around to enjoy it with the rest of us.”

Frampton also praises the vastly improved audio quality, and was especially happy to revisit the material that wasn’t used on the original LP. “It’s like a breath of fresh air after listening to one particular version,” he says. “The beauty of it is that you get three other completely different performances of most of the songs. And it’s great to hear Steve’s banter from all of the shows. We’ve lived with [imitates Marriott] ‘It’s really been a gas!’ for 40-odd years, and now there’s more.”

Humble Pie recorded four albums and several singles before achieving its U.S. breakthrough with 1971’s double-live set Performance: Rockin’ the Fillmore. The album caught on in a big way with American listeners, hitting #21 on the U.S. album chart and becoming Humble Pie’s first Gold album.
