06 APRIL 2017 (Toronto,ON) - Soaring rock super-group Humble Pie receives vinyl reissue treatment via The A&M Vinyl Boxset 1970–1975. Collecting the bands key A&M era albums for the first time together in one mighty set, the limited edition time capsule is due for a June 2 release via Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, with pre-order here. Formed by Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton in 1969, Humble Pie were one of the first super-group rock bands to form. The original band line-up featured lead vocalist and guitarist Steve Marriott from the Small Faces, vocalist and guitarist Peter Frampton from The Herd, former Spooky Tooth bassist Greg Ridley and a seventeen-year-old drummer, Jerry Shirley. They are known as one of the late 1960s' first groups to find success on both sides of the Atlantic with such songs as Black Coffee, 30 Days in the Hole, I Don't Need No Doctor, and Natural Born Bugie. This vinyl boxset, compiled in conjunction with Jerry Shirley and Peter Frampton, pulls together all the albums the band recorded for A&M. They have been re-mastered by Kevin Reeves and appear on 180gm vinyl with replica artwork from the time, including: o   Humble Pie (1970) o   Rock On (1971) o   Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore (1971) [2LP] o   Smokin’ (1972) o   Eat It (1973) [2LP] o   Thunderbox (1974) o   Street Rats (US Version) (1975) "At last we have the extreme privilege, thanks to the hard work of the restoration engineers at Universal, to hear all of our catalogue from A&M in it's finest form, on vinyl," says Jerry Shirley. "Eat It, in particular, had sound problems originally that have now been eradicated once and for all, so that all our fans, old and new, can hear it as it was intended to be, a wonderful slice of Humble Pie Rock & Roll." "I'm so glad that we finally have this fantastic boxset, on vinyl no less, of Humble Pie's great body of work," adds Peter Frampton. "Jerry and I have worked together with A&M for some time to get this released. We pay tribute to our two lost brothers, Steve and Greg and hope you enjoy this as much as we did putting it all together." TRACKLISTINGS: Humble Pie (1970) - Produced by Glyn Johns Side One
