Humble Pie Town And Country CD
The classic 1969 Humble Pie album for the Immediate label, plus eight bonus tracks including Natural Born Bugie.
 
 
Formed in April 1969, Humble Pie were one of the most successful 'supergroups' of the late Sixties, ranking in popularity and influence with Cream and Blind Faith.
 
At the core of the group was Steve Marriott - front man of the Small Faces - and Peter Frampton. Both highly-accomplished singers and guitarists, their contrasting styles gave a unique sound to Humble Pie, which was to influence the likes of Led Zeppelin and Paul Weller in years to come. Whilst Marriott took a rock approach, Frampton favoured a more pastoral, acoustic approach, resulting in a hybrid of sexy blues and hippie folk. 
 
Signed to Immediate Records, their well-received first album, 'As Safe As Safe Is', was released in July 1969, at the same time as their debut single 'Natural Born Bugie', which shot to number 4 in the U.K chart. 'Town And Country', their second album, was released at the end of 1969. In contrast to the rock approach of the debut album single and single, 'Town And Country' was lighter in feel and almost entirely acoustic. 
 
This reissue of 'Town And Country' also contains 8 bonus tracks, featuring the best of rest of the group's Immediate recordings, including the non-album smash single 'Natural Born Bugie' and its B-side 'Wrist Job' as well as selected highlights from 'As Safe As Yesterday Is'.
