I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Cleopatra Records artist: Humble Pie - I Need A Star In My Life - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, I Need A Star In My Life, from Humble Pie and it's good to hear Mr. Marriott on some new tracks. Opening with Sam Cooke's Shake, Marriott and Clem Clempson lay down a solid rock and roll riff and Marriott has at it vocally with Greg Ridley on bass and Ian Wallace on drums. Lloyd Price's Send Me Some Lovin' features Tim Hinkley on lead vocal who does a really nice job, also contributing piano and organ which really sets it off nicely. Marriott's Street Rat has a real Humble Pie feel with trademark vocals and a driving beat. High and Happy is reminiscent of Hot n Nasty with just a little more R&B groove. Marriott truely has one of the best rock soul vocals of all time. Marriott's Louisiana Blues is really sweet with wild vocals and a potent bottom. Clempson and Marriott get a chance to rip a bit on guitar, complimented by Wallace on drums. Cocaine, a Pie composition, gets that funky, Pie, groove and with Hinkley on organ, and Marriott on lead vocal, this track cooks. Wrapping the release is Signed Sealed, an R&B creeper with Marriott  with his trademark vocal style over the organ work of Hinkley. Clempson gets a real nice chance to show his guitar style closing out the track.
