CD Reviews

Tin Soldier: Little Guy slayed Giants
K.V.ABERHART | Matakana ; NZ | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
