Description by OLDIES.com:

This is your chance to get two albums on one CD by one of the best rock groups of the 60s, 70s and the 80s. These two albums let you experience the rebirth of the power group with two of their most popular albums. On To Victory was originally released by Elektra in 1980 and was the first album after Steve Marriott reformed the band. The album and single "Fool For A Pretty Face" both climbed well into the Billboard Top 100 lists.

Go For The Throat was Humble Pie's second release after the reform. It features the hit single Tin Soldier, which climbed to number 58 on the Billboard Top 100.

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: ON TO VICTORY (1980)/GO FOR THE THROAT (1981).
Personnel: Steve Marriott (vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboards); Bob Tench (vocals, guitar); Jerry Shirley (drums).
Recording information: Media Sound, Copenhagen, Denmark; Soundworks Studio; Villa Recorders, Modesto, CA.
Photographer: Mark Hanauer.
This two-for-one disc collects the pair of albums that Humble Pie recorded after frontman Steve Marriott and drummer Jerry Shirley resurrected the British group's name in 1980. By this time, of course, the ensemble's most famous alum, Peter Frampton, was long gone, and these outings--recorded with guitarist Bobby Tench and bassist Anthony "Sooty" Jones--stray from the band's original blues-rock template considerably, leaning towards a heavier sound that, at times, recalls AC/DC. ON TO VICTORY (1980) found a surprisingly large audience with its hard-rock edge, though that mood is tempered here by songs such as the reggae-like "Savin' It" and the funky "Over You." GO FOR THE THROAT (1981) begins with an amped-up, metallic take on Elvis Presley's "All Shook Up" and continues in the vein of the earlier album. Fans of Humble Pie's Frampton era will likely be perplexed by this release, but, for aficionados of early-'80s hard rock, these often-overlooked records may be a pleasant find.
