No matter. Fillmore and Rock On came out in the same year, so it's really splitting hairs. Lemme rephrase then and just say after the '71 releases.

Not sure what you mean by "his voice going." Can you be more specific?

If you listen to not only "Smokin,'" but the next two records ("Eat It" and "Thunderbox") Marriott's voice is still in fine form.
I know there were signs of his vocal strain on the records following the '71 releases (understandable given the material and the legendary touring schedule).... but if it upsets you that much that I said that and really want me to name specific tracks, then you'll have to wait till I find someone with those release's because, as I said, it's been years since I've been through them and much perfer The Small Faces when it comes time to listen to Marriott's vocals. Humble Pie, to me, is pretty much an after thought.
