That might help.

Smokin' is how I remember hearing it with Marriott anyways, whether you think it happened later on or not is completely up to you.
I'm not denying that his voice deteriorated - I'm just disagreeing with your assessment of when it happened.

If you listen to the three albums HP released after "Rockin' the Fillmore" you can hear (hopefully) that Marriott's voice is still in fine form.
