I agree. How you hear the dogs barking mixed in with the track is great! Steve Marriott was one hell of a musician! His death in 1991 was most tragic, however.

I've been listening to this of late---just genius! His voice was an instrument he was good at, let alone his guitar playing.

I never really got into Humble Pie at the time for some reason. Maybe it was because it was "The Next Band Along" from
Small Faces, who I thought were excellent. Marriott I feel is one of the few truly soulful singers to come out of the UK.
Others were Chris Farlowe (pretty well forgotten these days) and Paul Rodgers of Free. But it's a very select company...

The Small Faces were underrated I believe. They were ahead of the times and it showed. Steve Marriott, on the other hand, is another kettle of fish. His voice, and like you've pointed out, was very trueful, natural and soulful. His reach and tone were amazing!

Every time I listen to The Small Faces, Humble Pie, or his solo stuff in his later days before his death. I always say to myself, man what a fu*king voice!! Cool  

I remember we was going to cover a Small Faces song back in 2014 with The Ladykillers---I believe it was this one which Tim (bass player) wanted us to do. Unfortunately at the time we didn't quite get round to it. You never know this year though. Wink

As I said at PSF, there's so much stuff that went by the board in the late '60s (and early '70s before
disco, funk and punk rock hit) because it just didn't get the airplay, particularly in the UK. This song
from 1968 by Friend & Lover was what prompted that discussion. With thanks to theSuperMetroid:

Our good old friend Mark Mckenzie shared this on Peter Lacy's Facebook wall yesterday. I've never heard of them---but I instantly thought the song and the bands look, with one member also playing the electric harp, pretty darn cool!

Missed this first time round (scandalous!). Thanks, man. I thought it was
all mimed for a while until Ronnie Lane burst out laughing at 1:08.

As for the Spoonful, I wasn't a great fan although they were
very together musically. This is probably my favourite of theirs:

Zal Yanovsky left (or was sacked) in '67 and front man John Sebastian went solo in '68. The remaining trio struggled on briefly but called it a day in 1969.

I found this interesting, John. Especially the footage of Zal strumming the guitar up to annoy John on stage! lol!

I never realized just how much psychedelic music had been recorded in the later '60s, early '70s until I joined PSF. Looking round for new additions, I stumbled across this album Paix by Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes. The instrumentation includes a cosmophone and a percuphone----the mind boggles. This is the epic title track:

This is the best version of this song for me. This version was recorded in a living room back in '68.

For me too. I suppose soundwise it didn't fit on the debut album but it's utterly magnificent, not least Fripp's guitar lines.

I was alerted to this brilliant album by my friend from across the road. The name Fuzzy Duck doesn't ring a bell although I can't believe I never heard anything by them back in the day. From their one and only (eponymous) album, this is "Afternoon Out."

And here's another recommendation from the same source. The Peppermint Rainbow seem to have made little impression in the UK at the time (1969) and in fact only had one hit in the US, the gorgeous "Will You Be Staying After Sunday?" I have had little time for sunshine pop in the past but if much of it is like this, I may be converted yet. The 1960s: Pop/Rock Comes of Age - Page 2 Wink

'60s Birmingham band The Rockin' Berries. Some wonderful vocals and guitar work throughout this song.

"He's In Town" is one gorgeous record. I tend to pair 45s together and that one's twin is "Funny How Love Can Be"  by The Ivy League, another stunner:

Another SuperMetroid special--Tangerine Dream by the UK band Kaleidoscope now enjoys a reputation on a par with Pink Floyd's Piper... And it's easy to see hear why. From that 1967 album, this is the wonderfully named "(Further Reflections) In The Room Of Percussion":
