We are told:
This 4CD box set lovingly documents the final musical years of a true legend, a great songwriter, musician, and formidable frontman. Steve Marriott was sadly taken from us prematurely at the age of 44 on the 30th April 1991. Vocalist and guitarist in such great bands as Small Faces and Humble Pie, Steve clearly had so much more to give, as is evidenced here, and this box set attempts to pay respect to the inspirational talent that is Steve Marriott by compiling four of his last ever live shows from his final year with us in 1991.
These live sets contain many old favourite Marriott classics such as ‘Itchycoo Park’, ‘All or Nothing’, ‘Whatcha Gonna Do About It’ and ‘Big Train Stops at Memphis’, live Packet of Three staples, a smattering of rhythm & blues standards, plus a number of Chuck Berry classics in ‘Talking ‘Bout You’ and ‘Memphis Tennessee’. This collection of live sets demonstrates the fact that not only was Steve an immense performer throughout his whole career, but that he was sadly taken from us far too early.
