YouTube Preview ImageHumble Pie- For Your Love

Humble Pie featuring Steve Marriott, Peter Frampton, Greg Ridley and Jerry Shirley performing “For Your Love” on the German tv show Beat Club in August 1970. The song was written by future 10cc member Graham Gouldman and originally performed by The Yardbirds. Besides the lyrics and a bit of the melody drifting in, though, Pie’s version sounds like a wholly different tune.
