5.0 out of 5 stars The Majic Mijit 21 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
For the first time - all of Steve Marriott's career summarised onto one CD set.
Firstly - thanks to John Reed, who has done an excellent job of selecting the tracks. It has been obviously done with a lot of feeling for Steve's catalogue, and there is a LOT of tasteful selection.
From his early work, through the Small Faces heyday....to Humble Pie superstardom in the USA to his very UNDERRATED solo work....this is an exceptional collection - and is an ideal purchase both for long term fans, but particularly for those new to this wonderful music.....and at a great price
Rock On !

This album represents the first attempt to collect the varied and intriguing career of the forefather of Mod and Britpop, the legend that is Steve Marriott. The first CD has 20 of the more essential Small Faces songs, and it's a good thing to have the early and later material on one album which I think is a first. However if you are looking for a Small Faces collection the best advice is 2003's Ultimate Collection which has a range of tracks including the stunning cover version of Marvin Gaye's Baby Don't You Do It (also covered by fellow mods, the Who). But if you're looking for something extra this is definitely worth getting. There is an alternative version of Watch'a gonna do about it, an Italian language Green Circles and the demo of Wham, Bam... called Me, You & Us too. There is an added bonus of a cover of Brenda Holloway's Motown classic 'Every Little bit Hurts' which is, like all Small Faces covers, superb. There are a further two cds here, one from the Humble Pie years, the other representing solo projects and collaborations. Not being too familiar with Humble Pie this seems to be a good introduction into this part of his career. That said the majority of this work is very 'American sounding' and it's not surprising that like the Faces the band found a new audience in the US. The music isn't bad, but frankly the Faces did this style of music a lot better and with an edge that isn't seen here. It's somewhat surprising that an album dedicated to Marriott ends up highlighting that the rest of the band contributed as much to the Small Faces sound as Marriott did. That said Marriott's voice sounds great throughout and the later songs on the collection show a move back towards the British R & B sound. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Tin Soldier: Little Guy slayed Giants 24 Feb 2006
By K.V.ABERHART - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Steve Marriott wrote 2 of the 60's greatest songs of all times -Tin Soldier and Afterglow of Your Love. Before that he emerged as an unstoppable r'n b shouter with one of the strongest and distinctive voices of the period ( think Jagger,Steve Winwood etc.)as well as leaving behind several classic albums during the Small Faces epoch. The years beyond with Humble Pie & the Steve Marriott "Solo Years" are sprinkled with so many gems one can only be gobsmacked at Marriott's talent : this guy was a true one-man musical Titan who persistently delivered on his own terms ; pop-fashionability he left behind with the artifice of the 60's.

Every track on these albums is valid / a winner / just plain GOOD. All 3 dics are period-segmented and each works as a seperate whole.

The packaging and presentation whilst informative and concise seems a little underdone and even mean ; given the stature and regard given to Steve Marriott's demonstrable and yes ,extraordinary genius . Music rules however & the lack of generosity is blown backatcha by the force of Marriott's voice : the little Tin Soldier speaks through and rises far beyond the Fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Along with the Peter Green Anthology, hands down, TOPS to an unsung hero! 29 Oct 2010
By cd-heaven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steve Marriott, under-rated, YES, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame worthy, YES, best vocalist ever, YES.

To make this review short, this is truly a career spanning anthology to the one time Small Face, Pie Lover, Pack of 3, Official Receiver, All Star, and Blues D.T...covers every every corner of this man's career. The first disc is devoted to The Small Faces, with some early recordings by a young Steve included.

Disc 2 covers The Pie, all incarnations thoroughly.

Disc 3 is the real gem, with an excellent overview of Steve's musical career from 1975 until his death with rarest studio and live tracks scattered throughout. Also includes his final recordings with Peter Franmpton. Pure gold.

I own dozens of boxed sets, anthologies, double discs sets, you name it...this is a treasure in my music chest...and it will be if you love music! You won't be sorry you bought this...
