Humble Pie

Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore, with all its pumped up, sonically dirty cannon fire of rock and roll by the classic powerhouse quartet Humble Pie, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

Led by the soulfully aggressive and pained gritty vocals of the late Steve Marriott (who remains one of the great unsung rock and roll singers in music history), and complimented by the razor sharp guitar notes and riffs from Peter Frampton (who later went on to his own dizzying superstardom), Humble Pie took what Led Zeppelin did, mixed it with some of the sounds of Marriott’s former group The Small Faces, and presented it hot off the blues/rock presses. Each studio album released by the band was met with more and more success, here stateside and overseas in their homeland of Britain.

Traffic Low Spark Cover

The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, by the classic rock ensemble Traffic, led by the prolific Steve Winwood, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

By 1971, Traffic had already experienced major success with the prior release from 1970, “John Barleycorn Must Die” and Winwood was already pretty much a veteran of the late 1960s British classic rock boom and found big success with this album as well.

Radiohead OK Computer

A stylistic left turn away from the more pop-friendly tracks of The Bends and Pablo Honey, Radiohead‘s OK Computer may not be the best of the band’s albums, but it may well be their most important. The album can be had right now on Amazon for just $5 as one of the 100 notable albums on sale during their $5 MP3 Album Deals for the month of April 2012.

Widely acclaimed and sonically diverse (though not as diverse or experimental as later works), OK Computer offers stand-out singles like the slow building “Lucky” and “Karma Police,” as well as several other expressive tracks that impress on first listen but make their full impact felt over time.

Laughin' and Cryin' With The Reverend Horton Heat

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deal for March 2012, Laughin’ And Cryin’ With The Reverend Horton Heat is on sale for only $5.

If you’d like a physical copy of Laughin’ And Cryin’ With The Reverend Horton Heat, the CD is available for only $7.82.

You may be asking, “Who the hell is The Reverend Horton Heat?” Well, he’s not an actual reverend, for starters. He’s Jim Heath, who acquired the nickname “Reverend” back in 1985 when his impromptu solo rendition of “Fulsom Prison Blues” was met with shouts of “Go Reverend” by the proprietor of the venue where Heath was simply known as “Jim the Sound Guy,” It was that night that Jim Heath became The Reverend Horton Heat. The name Horton is a nod to Johnny Horton, an American country and rockabilly singer popular in the 1950s, and Heat is just a shortened version of Heath. The name also doubles as the name of the band, whose sound has been described as a combination of country, surf, punk, big band, swing, and rockabilly – sometimes collectively referred to as psychobilly. Their energetic sound and often humorous lyrics, make The Reverend Horton Heat an all-around good-time band.
