Third album self band entitled with vocals of Steve Marriott, Greg Ridley & Peter Frampton. All complementing each other yet nobody in rock will ever top Marriott’s, he was in a league and world of his own.
Live with Me was just a mere taste of Rock Blue’s best, with the natural-born soul within Steve’s. I’ve also added the Live Rendition that the band did in Sept. of 1970 for John Peel’s Soundboard/BBC, although mono even more seductive and raw.
God were those the days.
Steve Marriott, Greg Ridley, Peter Frampton and Jerry Shirley.
This unplugged session took place two years (1969) before the best Live concert of all time “Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore (1971) was ever done. It showed how masterful Steve Marriott really was without the amps and how all the members just mixed together perfectly. From Small Faces to Pie and beyond. The man was raw, pure soul to the core.
The Yardbirds made the song famous but Humble Pie’s style made it a classic.
To this day I still believe that “Performance Rockin’ the Fillmore” and The Allman Brothers Band “At Fillmore East” are the two best live albums that were ever produced.
