Out Of The Archives Comes A Vintage Rarities Collection From Legendary British Rock Band HUMBLE PIE!
Fans of classic, hard-chargin’ blues rock take note! A superb collection of mid ’70s rare recordings from blues rock institution Humble Pie is being released this month. I Need A Star In My Life features studio recordings from 1974-1976 with unmistakable HP vocalist Steve Marriott along with bassist Greg Ridley and guitarist Clem Clempson. Together this trio experimented with a variety of styles and sounds as they composed several new songs as well as rearranging songs by soul legend Sam Cooke, blues giant Bo Diddley, and others. King Crimson saxophonist Mel Collins even pops in for a special guest appearance!
These recordings have been completely digitally remastered and packaged with full liner notes from music journalist Dave Thompson. I Need A Star In My Life is available now on all formats including CD, digital and multiple vinyl configurations!

I Need A Star In My Life appears to be a reissue (remaster, repackage?) of the The Scrubber Sessions, which features the same track listing, and also includes in the credits – Boz Burrell (bass, ex King Crimson), Ian Wallace (drums, ex King Crimson), Tim Hinkley (keyboards, organ), Joe Brown (fiddle), and BJ Cole (pedal steel guitar). Presumably this will be an upgrade in sound, and the packaging looks nicely done.
