MAHOGANY RUSH picture
Mahogany Rush was a hard rock band from Montreal, Canada that was formed by guitarist Frank Marino in 1970 when he was barely 16 years old. The band was at its peak during the 1970’s, and most of its albums were in the Billboard top 200 with three albums breaking the top 100 between 1974 and 1980. From the late seventies, the band became known as Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush. Later Frank Marino performed under his name alone, though from the year 2000, Marino has assembled Mahogany Rush with new musicians and continues to perform live both as Frank Marino and Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush.

Frank Marino is the son of an Italian immigrant. He started playing drums from the age of five. In 1967, when he was only thirteen years old, he had a bad drug experience that left him hospitalized. In order to keep his mind occupied

voila_la_scorie
This is Mahogany Rush’s third album and from what I can hear, they are moving away from a direct Jimi Hendrix influence and going into their own soundscape more. This album has more power and more heaviness than “Child of the Novelty” but it also offers a well-concocted blend of jazz/psychedelia/funk to go with the hard and heavy rock. There are still tracks that pay homage to Jimi like “1000 Nights”, which is like a pumped up cousin of “Voodoo Child”, and the title track, which borrows from “Third Stone from the Sun” with a blowing wind sound and slowed down, distorted vocals mixed in with the music. But to call Mahogany Rush or Frank Marino a Hendrix clone is being shallow. The words expressed on the web site Orexis of Death describe very well the music of Mahogany Rush:

“Mahogany Rush was to Jimi Hendrix what jazz saxophonists Sonny Stitt and Ernie Henry were to Charlie Parker-loving disciples, but not outright clones. Without question, Hendrix was a major influence on the hard rock power trio; you could hear it in leader Frank Marino’s singing as well as his electric guitar playing. But ultimately, Mahogany Rush sounded like itself.”

I already reached that conclusion in my review of “Child of the Novelty”; however, I also said that there were very close similarities to Uli Jon Roth’s band Electric Sun and in “Dancing Lady” I also hear Stevie Ray Vaughan and a bit of Led Zeppelin from “The Crunge”.

Similarities aside, this album is a rich treasure trove of guitar rock with a variety of ground covered. Listen to that frustration and ire in “Dear Music”.

“Goddamn! Are you putting me on, man? Are you trying to make me wonder just who the hell I am? Well, goddamn! Why is it that you don’t understand? Well, I’m bloody sick and tired of being treated like a garbage can! Well, I know what you’re trying to do, But let me say this, f**k, you ain’t dealing with a fool! Ah, you’re so f**king cool.”

Songs like “Tryin’ Anyway” and “1000 Nights” also weigh down the music in heaviness. But there’s a lighter side too and Marino’s witty lyrics turn up in two songs that are light but bounce with a psychedelic funkiness that once again crosses Jimi with Uli. “The King Who Stole (the universe)” is a clever parable about a being that tricks the foolish inhabitants of worlds into selling their suns.

“He was a great proud king they had said In his rode of lilac and red But the mysterious thing About this being who was a king Was the jewel studded crown on his head

For at one time these stones were not jewels But planets made of many fools Who had sold him their sun Cause they thought he was the one Who had given them all of their rules

And when he had paid for their star He would send it away very far For now he did own it And surely would not loan it To fools who’s disowned it before!”

The other amusing song is “Once Again”, which is about a couple who constantly bicker.

Well, the years have gone, the times have changed, the couple have passed away They’d walked along the path of life but argued all the way And they thought when life was over all the people just go away But in front of the Pearly Gates they stared into each other’s face.

“Hey,” cried the lady, “it’s so nice to see you here. I didn’t think you’d make it and I’m amazed that you are here." He said, “Now what do you mean by that crack?” And she saw she’d made a boo-boo.

I’ve quoted some of the lyrics because of how well they go with the groove of the music. This album is fun at times, rocks way out at times, and eases back with some jazz guitar and smooth psychedelia. This is an album praised by many and I can understand why.

Frank Marino and his band Mahogany Rush hit the music scene with their debut in 1972 and this is their sophomore release. Marino's Hendrix-influenced style of playing bears such a remarkable similarity to its originator that some critics accused him of being just a Hendrix clone. Others stirred up stories that the spirit of Hendrix had visited Marino or was occupying his body. Of course Marino denied all these false allegations; however, he surely didn't help when he claimed, "The style just came naturally to me. I didn't choose it. It choose me."

From the onset, it's easy to hear the Jimi Hendrix influence. Frank Marino's vocal style, song-writing style, and use of "yeah" and "ah" in "Makin' My Wave" plus his use of delay and echo effects do really make Mahogany Rush sound like a Jimi Hendrix tribute band. But if you listen more, you'll notice that the music is more charged than most of Hendrix's. Perhaps if Hendrix had endured until 1974 this is what he might have sounded like. It's not just Hendrix though. There's late seventies Uli Jon Roth here as well, sometimes sounding like "Polar Nights" or "Hell Cat" from Scorpions "Virgin Killer" album or like Electric Sun's debut "Earthquake". In particular, the title track of that album bears a strong resemblance to Mahogany Rush! And though my Stevie Ray Vaughan listening experience is limited to one album and a couple of singles, I was reminded of Vaughan as well in a few places.

It's best, I would think, to listen to the album a couple of times to get over the whole "It sounds like Jimi" thing and get into the music because this album really rocks and grooves and closer to an Uli Jon Roth kind of way more often than Jimi Hendrix kind of way. It's almost as if Jimi Henrix led to Frank Marino which led to Uli Jon Roth.

Well, I won't deny that you'll find yourself reminded of classic Hendrix songs like "I Don't Live Today", "Third Stone from the Sun", "May This Be Love", "Love or Confusion" or "Crosstown Traffic". And I do believe the title track is about Hendrix himself. "He was a child of the novelty and he took them by surprise / He worked magic, magic before their eyes." But once again, there's an intensity on this album that goes beyond mind expanding psychedelia and gets back to a more visceral approach associated both with rock and roll and hard rock.

For fans of Uli Jon Roth's late seventies output and also fans of Jimi Hendrix, I recommend checking out this album and Mahogany Rush. I'm sure after a few listens you will gain an understanding of how Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush fit in to their own unique style that is both Jimi and Uli and at the same time exactly Mahogany Rush.
