Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Mahogany Rush is a Canadian Rock band led by guitarist Frank Marino, whose soaring lead guitar work bears a strong resemblance to the playing of Jimi Hendrix. In the late 70's and onward, the group toured as Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush and at times is referred to simply as Frank Marino. Mahogany Rush commanded a loyal, good-sized following and provided it's share of five-star albums. One of them is this live album, which was recorded during their U.S. tour in late 1977 and came out on vinyl the following year. Mahogany knew how to burn on stage, and this excellent LP really captures the vitality of it's 1970s concerts. You gotta hear Frank Marino let loose on live versions of 'Dragonfly', 'Electric Reflections of War' and 'The Answer'. The band is equally captivating on performances of Jimi Hendrix's 'Purple Haze', Chuck Berry's 'Johnny B. Goode' and Muddy Waters' 'I'm a King Bee'. 'Live' is consistently rewarding and is enthusiastically recommended to anyone into hard rock and classic heavy metal.
