Product no.: LB025
A new indie label committed to making recordings available for the first time, on limited edition 45s.
Hard on the heels of the debut release (LB01 Lou Pride) comes a sensational double A side from the soul of Steve Marriott!
''Steve Marriotts' prolific collaborations over the decades with ladies of soul including Clydie King, Venetta Fields, Sherlie Matthews, Billie Barnum, Claudia Lennear, P.P. Arnold, Doris Troy, Sam Brown and Margo Buchanan are in the main 'invisible' with recordings lost and/or unreleased. In the meantime hopefully this 2nd Last Bastion Records release will give a small insight into the soulful side of Steve, 1st time on 45, originally recorded for unreleased /shelved LPs and includes two of The Small Faces finally re uniting and on the flip, backing vocals from P.P. Arnold again re uniting with Steve.''

Two absolute beauties , keeping the legacy of Marriott alive, more than a small face! Amazing how his voice sounds so fresh as if it was today, you can see why so many have tried to emulate this wonderful man. Great that these 2 are released on Vinyl for the 1st time – well done Bastion Records Keep em coming!

'Steve Marriott was one of the best songwriters of his generation and his music will continue to be discovered and enjoyed for generations to come”

“What a voice, the late great Steve Marriott sounding as Soulful as ever!”
Rob Bailey/Dr Robert (www.newuntouchables.com / http://www.lebeatbespoke.com)
''He (Steve Marriott) had the best white man singing the blues, white soul singer voice ever. He was a black man in a little white body.''
Jerry Shirley (Humble Pie drummer & various incarnations of Steve Marriott bands)
''Both of these tracks, in my opinion, prove that Steve Marriott was most definitely the best British Male R&B/Soul vocalist.... He was authentic, full of expression and all the way “Live”. I remember recording those BV´s on ´Some Kind Of Wonderful´ with Sam Brown and Margo Buchanan. The track was on fire, raw, funky and full of spirit.''
"Lonely No More" sees the legendary duo of Marriott & Lane back together for one last time. It's like they never went away. Superb!"
