I Walk On Gilded Splinters

Links to Peel

Humble Pie were one of the so-called "supergroups", made up of well-known members of popular bands, which became a trend in 1969. (Other supergroups included Blind Faith and Crosby, Stills and Nash, who later became Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.) Humble Pie lasted longer than the other supergroups and were particularly successful in the USA - which may explain why, despite picking up a fair amount of airplay on Peel's shows in the early '70s, the only session they did for Top Gear was soon after their formation in 1969.
