I always stayed away from the band Small Faces because I knew Rod Stewart used to front that band. I recently found a copy of Small Faces’ “Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake” and when I listened to the first few tracks off the album I said to myself, “This isn’t Rod Stewart.”
Steve Marriott was the original front man of Small Faces, and to my dismay, I just found that out. He’s got a killer rock voice. Check out the 1968 video clip of Small Faces, fronted by Steve Marriott, singing “Talk To You” and “Rollin’ Over”.
I found another killer video of Humble Pie performing “Black Coffee” back in 1973. Wow. I wish I could sound like that. Artful dodger indeed.
Look’s like I’ll have to look into Humble Pie now…
Very great singer and great group. Very soo i will have in my blog,
I love Steve Marriott’s vocals on “Black Coffee”. That recording gets me every time.
