The album title 'Eat It' means 'dig it'. Each side of this double album is different: side 1 features Steve Marriott penned rock and roll; side 2 has classic R&B covers; side 3 is a collection of acoustic Steve Marriott songs; finally side 4 features Humble Pie live in concert.
This album showcases the dynamic diversity and talent of Steve Marriott's gritty bluesy vocals with some funky soul mixed in throughout along with straight ahead blistering rockers. The band is right on and they deliver an extremely energetic powerhouse combination on this double album that overall ranks with their best along with 'Smokin''and 'Performance Rockin' The Fillmore'.
'Eat It' was the band's seventh official album release and their fifth for A&M Records. This was also their 3rd double LP (2-record set) within 18 months, the other 2 being 1972's 'Performance Rockin' The Fillmore' and the late 1972 A&M compilation 'Lost & Found'.
Steve Marriott produced this album and it was the first album recorded in Marriott's newly-built home recording studio he titled Clear Sounds, in a converted barn at Beehive Cottage, Moreton, Essex.
"Get Down to It" was featured in the 2004 video game 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andrea'
I heard Marriott's voice for the first time when I bought "Performance Rockin' Fillmore" in 1973 & I'm still in shock ...
I was not surprised when J. Thunders invited him on "So Alone" for an impressive & definitive version of "Daddy Rolling Stone" !!!
