"The Sad Bag of Shaky Jake" was a single released in 1969 by English rock outfit Humble Pie, who were one of the first so-called supergroups of the 1960s to mid 1970s. Although released in a number of European countries (e.g. West Germany, the Netherlands), it did not go on worldwide general release and is not included on the official list of Immediate Records single releases.
Humble Pie's first live performance of this song was during their appearance at the beginning of the Bilzen Festival in Belgium on 29 August 1969, notably with Jerry Shirley not on drums but on electric piano. The song set included their version of Ray Charles "Hallelujah I Love Her So" and Dr. John's "I Walk on Gilded Splinters". The support act was the then unheralded heavy metal band Deep Purple.
