AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print LPs by Humble Pie: On to Victory and Go for the Throat, both originally issued on Atco in 1980 and 1981, respectively. The resurrected version of Humble Pie included original members Steve Marriott and drummer Jerry Shirley, rounded out by guitarist Bobby Tench and bassist Anthony Jones. At this point, superstardom had come and gone for Humble Pie. The only remaining audience for these albums, especially after the failed 1975 disc Street Rats, were the fanatics, and it's a good bet they bought them mainly to complete their collections. At the very least, the cover versions from On to Victory show off the impeccable taste of the band. Go for the Throat didn't even have that going for it.
