Strange Universe Ode To Creation Ain't Dead Yet excerpt Slippin' And Slidin' Back To The Hall Two 'n' Four Just Joshin' Avalon Rumble 'n' Roll For Pete's Sake Jazzed A Moment Tales Of The Unexpected Electric Reflections Of War The World Anthem To say that Marino excels in a live environment is an understatement!
The power of Marino live is the stuff of legend and he certainly lives up to his reputation on this new album. Marino is one of the first Montreal artists to go International.
All hail the return of the Master! After 8 long years, it is finally upon us. Frank Marino has Back On Home - Mahogany Rush - Maxoom well and this CD reflects that very well. Frank's true musical influences shine brightly on almost every cut. The Doors, Santana and even Pink Floyd are prevailent. My favorite track is "He's Callin'", which really shows Frank's maturity.
Headphones are preferred for this CD. Read my full review here. The first album released from Frank Marino. This album was dedicated to Jimi Hendrix which enhanced the ugly rumor that Frank was Jimi's reincarnation. The record features a vast array of styles which only grace the surface of what's to come. My favorite song is "Buddy" in which Frank is actually singing to Jimi about the affect that he had on Frank and his untimely death. Available on CD as an import if you can find it or you can get it as part of a three album double CD with "Child of the Novelty" and "Strange Universe".
If you're a new fan, buy the triple, you'll be hooked. Frank was only 16 years old when this album was recorded!! Jonny Lang who? This record starts to showcase Frank's songwriting intermixed with his powerful vocals and blazing soulful guitar riffs which will become his trademark. Some melodic slow tunes show that he is not afraid of venturing into different areas of music without compromising his talents.
My favorite song is "Makin' my Wave" in which Frank gives his response to the critics who've tried so hard to keep him down. Frank really outdid himself with his third offerring. In my unbiased opinion, this record features his best work of all time.
Every cut on this album stands alone as a great force to be reckoned with. From the very different "King Who Stole The Universe" and the sensuous "Moonlight Lady" down to my favorite rocker "Land of a Child Of The Novelty, 19 year old Frank pulls out all the stops and delivers a solid performance throughout.
One of the best albums of all time, by anyone!!! Must own. The Emperor. A new record deal doesn't change much as far as the music goes. His fourth album in four years shows that he means business. Although still being panned by the critics and accused of ripping of Hendrix, they put out another solid collection.
Frank dabbles with the Mellotron on a few cuts and delivers some very good mellow songs like "It's Begun to Rain" but still shows us why we love him with my favorite song "Dragonfly". The title cut "World Anthem" is an instrumental that sends a chill up your spine every time. This is a great album which is masterfly produced. Seeing Frank Marino live is an experience that you will not soon forget, but not because your ears are permanentely damaged, but because you Back On Home - Mahogany Rush - Maxoom witness the raw power and seering guitar licks first hand.
This album captures Frank in his element where he shines the brightest. My favorite song off this record is by far "Johnny B. Goode", where his guitar shredding surpassess all who came before and covered this classic blues tune. Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest. I saw Frank Marino twice. A great live recording available on CD and I was hooked.
I hate that most people always compare him to Jimi Hendrix, but I have to admit when you close your eyes and become "one with the music" I sometimes forget I'm not listening to Jimi. This was a surprisingly good recording for a multi-album offering. I enjoyed this album. A lot of good stuff on here. You bring Mahogany Rush Back On Home - Mahogany Rush - Maxoom when friends come over.
Nuff said! Jimi clone. If you're a fan of 's stadium stoner rock, this is for you! Frank Marino is a great musician and a fabulous guitarist. His singing on his first 3 recordings included in this package was not the best, and vacilitated between sounding like Hendrix or Bob Dylan. It's hit or miss, but never horrible, just kinda meh. But his playing and his band have always delivered. A classic gem. I have been a Frank Marino fan for a long time. Obviously, Jimi Hendrix Pink Floyd - France 1971 his idol because it shows in his sound and performance.

He has finished them and I am honored to be given the first copies for review. My allegiance Access Future Audio - Simulant - Out Of Ether this "era" of Frank's music is well documented throughout this site.
Those albums were the soundtrack of my youth People (Original Mix Radio Edit) - Dax Riders - People I will always hold them in the highest regard.
What needs to be understood here is that these albums were NOT remixed because the original masters were accidentally destroyed many moons ago crying moons! These were remastered by Frank Marino himself while working from nearly pristine half-inch tapes.
Frank started the project by remastering Child of the Novelty first, followed by Strange Universe and then finally Maxoom. This was done so that he could apply the very best effort to Maxoom, the first album of his career and the one that needed the most help due to recording limitations as well as knowledge or lack thereof back in I will start with Maxoom.
Maxoom - Knowing that Frank Marino was a mere 16 years old when he recorded his first album while having only been playing guitar for about 3 years, is nothing short Strange Universe phenomenal! This remaster definitely brightens up the overall sound and clarity of his first effort. I listened to everything in headphones and in my car's Kenwood stereo. It really is much clearer and louder. I even heard stuff that Japan - Before The Show - Years&Years&Years never heard before in tracks like Maxoom and Funky Woman.
Madness really did get plagiarized by the Eagles with Hotel California, just listen to the second half For it's limitations, this remaster still sounds way better than any version out there. I kinda miss the cracks and pops of my albums, but the newborn clarity is a revelation that speaks volumes throughout the 3 CD's.
Child of the Novelty - This was Frank's second album and also the second one that I ever heard.
