Very few rock records ever made better than this one. I've had it on all week. RIP the great Steve Marriott, taken from us in 1991 at the tender age of 44 in a house fire at his cottage in England. Most likely Marriott fell into a deep sleep after lighting a cigarette. Valium, alcohol and cocaine were found in his system.

That said, is there a rock 'n' roll record out there with more pure SOUL than this one? Hey you youngens out there: You need to pick this one up. Said Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley on Marriott's death: "He should be in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame because he's the greatest white soul singer that England ever produced." Not to mention an incredible guitar player.

Rob,

Agree with ya brother. This album has some killer tunes on it "C'mon Everybody" The Radio staple "30 days in the hole" "Roadrunner" Man what a killer album. Its a shame what happened to marriott. Frampton said at the time of his death that him and steve were working on some material together!. Hey rob if ya ever get the chance read Gallagher, Marriott, Derringer, Trower: Their Lives and Music by Dan Muise i think you'll enjoy it.\

Later,
Eric

I think I like their "Live at the Filmore" better. I think Frampton's back up vocals added a nice touch.

There's another book - All Too Beautiful - it's on my Chirstmas wishlist

I completely agree with you guys! Steve Marriott remains one of my FAVORITE vocalists. Rockin' at the Fillmore - in my top 5 albums for sure!!! Smokin' is an awesome record! There is a dvd called the Life and Times of Steve Marriott. For you fans, it's a must. For the newbie it's a great introductory to what that passionate soulful man was all about!!! I miss him!!!!!!!!

Rock on

Totally agree - one of the best rock n' roll albums out there. I remember having an 8 track of this and it remained in the player in the car for weeks until I wore it out. Another one of my HP faves is the album "As Safe As Yesterday Is". Also check out "Live With Me" off the "Humble Pie" album, one of their best tunes IMO. And is there a better live album than "Rockin' the Fillmore"?

Marriot was the real deal, and that Live at the Fillmore remains one of my all-time favorites as well. Great stuff!

Marriott's wailing on "I Don't Need No Doctor" used to drive my mother crazy! Okay, maybe I participated in that effort, too.

As a, um, growing boy, I used to love Humble Pie's logo/insignia, too.

Saw them in high school years back in 72.... small venue..... they ROCKED! Extended Doctor that was the highlight for me. I read Marriot was considered for the Stones, but was too much of a stage presence and threat to Mick.... Steve played hard powerful chunky rock guitar, amen. A true loss to rock and get that cat in the Hall of Fame. Some stuff on Utube if you search.

Humble Pie rules. Marriott was something else, even back when he was with Small Faces.

Well I can think of a better live album than "Rockin' The Fillmore", in fact it was recorded at the same venue :

Remember back in day, seeing Humble Pie and J. Geils touring together. Two great bands "kicking ass". It's a shame that Frampton and Marriott never got a chance to get back together.

Live At The Fillmore is one of the Great Live Records.

Steve Marriott was so tiny with such a big voice, simply amazing!!!

Saw that tour as well in Decemebr of '71, I think it was the first show at the Capitol Theater in Passaic.
The Capitol filled the void left by the closing of the Fillmore very nicely.

marriott and frampton were working on an album at the time of marriott's death. if you pick up a copy of the marriot cd "rainy changes" you can hear the 3 songs that they had completed before steve passed.

Humble Pie's Smokin' and J. Geil's Band Full House - both classic R&R. Believe I may have worn the grooves out on my copies of both of these albums.

Love the album /cd name " rainy changes " .... but I guess I'm just partial...

How in the world did I ever miss J.Geils " Live ".....

Love the Pie. Rock On & Smokin' are my faves. Speaking of smokin', a buddy from SA showed up with some real Durban Poison one time, think thai stick. Not seen any since that one time 30 years ago...
