As Safe As Yesterday Is / Town And Country

As Safe As Yesterday Is / Town And Country by Humble Pie
Released: Mar 1969
Label: Charly Records
Humble Pie's legacy is that of a marathon boogie-rock unit that barnstormed arenas year-round in the early '70s. But on their first two long-players, As Safe As Yesterday Is and Town And Country, the Pie sound more like folkies inspired by Music From Big Pink and Let It Bleed. Former Small Faces frontman Steve Marriott is always up for some gritty soul shouting; he's absolutely on fire on "Bang!" and on a sweeping rendition of John Kay's "Desperation." But ultimately it's the pastoral flavors of Peter Frampton, a wonderful acoustic guitarist and songwriter, that rule these overlooked gems.
