Steve Marriott's solo effort is similar to Humble Pie's last album from its original run, in that it is a jumble of tracks borrowed and/or rehashed from different projects from the general period. If you are really interested in this stuff I point all newcomers to the late 90's compilation The Scrubbers Sessions. That said, Marriott the album has some intriguing content, but was regarded as an afterthought in the wake of label mate (and former band member) Peter Frampton's then-runaway success. Divided into a British and American side, the material is over-the-top even by Marriott standards, and there seemed to have been a concerted attempt to put him over as a marketable white soul musician, going by the material on the slicker, more Cosmopolitan sounding American side. The first (British) side is definitely more familiar to Humble Pie fans, but a few tunes into it, Steve runs out of gas, resorting to a lackluster version of "Wham Bam, Thank You Ma'am" to close things out.
