|Fully Remastered Audio - Contains 2 Bonus tracks - 16 page full-colour booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos . The Commonly held belief about Frank Marino, leader of Mahogany Rush, is that he was motivated by the dead spirit of Jimi Hendrix. Of course this was a misquote taken from an early interview which persisted throughout his career and, to a degree, still dogs his activities to this very day. Of course it was pure hokum and a myth utilized to successfully advance his presence in the market place. Born and raised in Canada, Frank commenced his musical career as a drummer before moving to guitar and forming Mahogany Rush who issued five well received studio albums prior to this live album. Harnessing a wealth of strong material the band recorded several dates on their 1977 world tour in order to compile a comprehensive selection of choice cuts including 'Dragonfly', 'The Answer', 'I'm A King Bee', 'Talkin' 'Bout A Feelin' and the impressive 'World Anthem'. Of course Frank's guitar is the prominent instrument showcasing incredible fluidity and aggression as well as an obvious nod in the style of Jimmy Hendrix, but as a power trio the dexterous support of bassist Paul Harwood and drummer Jimmy Ayoub makes the recordings all the more arresting. As an authentic live album, one devoid of studio overdubs, the contents are hugely impressive allowing Frank to showcase endless solos. We've added two bonus tracks taken from the bands performance at the 1978 California Jam II festival held in front of an impressive 350,000 fans."|
