Frequently compared to Jimi Hendrix, Frank Marino developed his own fluid style, a compulsive progressive blues which helped to make albums like 1976’s Mahogany Rush IV and the following year’s World Anthem among the most well-received of their era, especially amongst his fellow musicians. 

It was onstage that Marino’s band Mahogany Rush were most at home, and in 1977 they recorded several dates on their world tour in order to compile a live album, one completely devoid of studio overdubs.
