    BGO records is finally going to reissue the last 2 of Frank Marino's that have never been officially on CD. "Juggernaut & Power Of Rock 'N' Roll" will see the light of day finally on CD in August, September. Good news for Marino fans like me. :headbang::kickass::Smokin:

    Hey there RK,

    Good news, indeed. I flipped when I first heard his 'live' album back in the 1970's. I had seen him on "california jam 2" and he blew me away. :)

    How are you Raptured...It was a sad story as Frank never got the respect or fame he deserved...if he wasn't gettin' screwed by his record company or his management it was the critic's and their f***in' Jimi Hendrix copy cat shit they never got over even though Frank's music changed and grew as he aged...the other thing was CBS/Sony never released these great albums for his fans...now BGO has finally set things right...hopefully they will sound killer and not like the shit bootleg Black Rose versions.

    So many great albums that still elude remastering and reissuing... Great news at least that these two will finally be available.

    Hi Rk....i'm fine thanks. :)
    I had heard that Frank got screwed by the record companies. Besides the J. Hendrix thing, he was also criticized for using too many pedals, which I always found really stupid. How can someone be criticized for creating his own particular sound and style ?
    Anyways.....glad to hear about the albums being re-issued. :)

    Frank always puts on an AWESOME show, and you always get your money's worth as he plays for 3 hours+. I always catch him when he tours. However, it has been a while (couple years) since he's been around. Is there anything wrong that you know of?

    I remember "Strange Dreams" getting a lot of radio play in my younger days. Excellent song; I may have to pick up Juggernaut.

    Lots of the Mahogany Rush discs are being re-issued / re-mastered in 3-packs....which is fine, but the idiots who are releasing these aren't putting all of the music on a single disc -- in other words, songs from disc 1 run on into disc 2, and songs from disc 2 run on into disc 3.... wtf ???

    They are all re-mastered, and I recently got:

    Mahogany Rush IV / World Anthem on a 2-pack
    Live (79) / Tales of the Unexpected / Whats Next on a 3-pack
    Double Live on a single CD

    All sound great ...especially the live disc which is one of my favorite all-time live discs ever.....not the Double Live, the Mahagony Rush live discs from 1979.....

    Strange Universe is one of my fav MR discs ......

    Thank God they remastered them.
    I also love the Live disc but the copy I have sounds like crap!
    I will have to pick up the remastered one.

    It's excellent quality...I did sell mine and buy the ones Frank remastered separate on Just In Time records...but to be honest the 3 on 2 sounded excellent and not scratchy like the Repertoire versions from the 90's.

    I would say for the price...grab it...it's classic especially the album "Strange Universe"...would be a desert island disc for sure to me.
