Artist: Humble Pie
Title: Performance Rockin' the Fillmore
Label: A&M
Catalog: SP 3506
Year: 1971
Genre: blues rock
Concept: BRoland Young
Cover art: Roland Young
Grade: * star

Musically this double live set was their American commercial breakthrough, but it has always struck me as being kind of plodding.  For goodness sakes, the thing clocks in at almost an hour in length and it is heavy on covers - there's one original composition.  Admittedly, the band can mine a groove and there were a couple of decent performances - 'I Don't Need No Doctor'' comes to mind.  

As for the cover ...   YAWN !!!
