The Atlanta Years
Known by many as the lost years as Steve Marriott disappeared from the public eye after the demise of Humble pie Mk II.
He then assembled a third version, recording tracks for a new album down in the Atlanta area. This 2 CD collection presents 9 tracks for that album, Recorded in Pyramid Eye Studios Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1982.
The 2nd CD is a live concert of the band in Cincinnati in '83, featuring some later material mixed in with classic Pie tracks "I Don't Need No Doctor"and "Hallelujah I Love Her So". The new stuff is good, and the live CD is an excellent reminder of how good Marriott was.
This is a fascinating period in the life of Steve Marriott as so little is know about it . The shows were fierce and tight the studio songs were strong the lifestyle was far far from normal.
