. . . Eat It (album) . . .

Steve Marriott had been talking to the group about having backing singers from early on. During the recording of Eat It, he had been in touch with Venetta Fields and asked her to find two other women to help her out. Fields chose Clydie King and Sherlie Matthews (Both previously with Raeletts) to become the Blackberries and flew to London. When Marriott asked them to perform on tour with Humble Pie, Sherlie Matthews declined due to other commitments, such as her two children and her husband. Matthews chose Billie Barnum to be missing member of the Blackberries.[citation needed]

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.[1]

Eat It was the band’s seventh official album release and their fifth for A&M Records. [This was also their third double LP (two-record set) within 18 months, the other two being 1971’s Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore and the late 1972 A&M compilation – Lost & Found.]

Marriott produced the album and it was the first album recorded in Marriott’s newly built home recording studio Clear Sounds, in a converted barn at Beehive Cottage, Moreton, Essex.[4]
