Humble Pie - Joint Effort Colored Vinyl LP
Humble Pie Joint Effort Colored Vinyl LP
Digitally remastered archive release. A very special lost album recorded in 1974-75 at Clear Sounds Studio with the classic line-up of Steve Marriott on guitar/vocals, Greg Ridley on bass, Dave Clempson on guitar, and Jerry Shirley on drums. Never before heard original compositions by the band plus blazing covers of James Brown ("Think"), The Beatles ("Rain") and Betty Wright ("Let Me Be Your Lovemaker"). Packaged with liner notes and rare photos.
In addition to never-before-heard originals, Joint Effort contains covers of songs recorded by the Beatles ("Rain"), Betty Wright ("Let Me Be Your Lovemaker") and James Brown ("Think"). The first two tracks eventually made their way onto Street Rats, the last album Humble Pie made with the classic lineup.
"Everything was so self-destructive at that point," Shirley recalled of that period. "Everybody was doing everything in a dozen different directions and nothing was getting done. ... Steve's way of dealing with things was buying an ounce of coke every other day and burying himself in his studio. When you've got nothing but carte blanche studio time and all the coke in the world, all you do is record."
