I've never been a fan of live albums. I've always believed that they are nothing more than a cheap and cheerful way for bands and record labels to make a bit of money out of the fans while they sit around twiddling their thumbs, waiting for the cheques to arrive.
Having said that, every now and again a live album comes along that makes you sit up and take notice.
By 1980, Magnum were a hard working midlands based band with a cult following and a decent reputation as a support band. Their first two albums, 'Kingdom Of Madness' and 'Magnum II' contained well written songs by guitarist Tony Clarkin, exceedingly well performed by a band who could seriously play. All that was required for Magnum was a break. It's ironic that the break they were looking for would come through a live project, rather than two good studio albums.
'Maruader' was recorded at London's famous Marquee club, during the band's tour in support of 'Magnum II', and would give Magnum a top 40 album in 1980. The accompanying live E.P., simply titled 'Magnum' would give them a top 50 single.
This remastered edition brings together both the album and the E.P., giving the lucky listener the whole Marquee show in it's entirety. Like all these remastered albums,it also comes complete with some amusing sleeve notes.
As for the music, the live renditions of these songs are actually superior to their studio counterparts. They are beefier and more vibrant, and due to the live atmosphere, seem charged with adrenalin.
The perfect example of this is 'Lords Of Chaos'. The studio version on 'Kingdom Of Madness' is flat and sounds almost like a funk track. The live version on 'Marauder' rocks like a beast. The same goes for 'The Battle'.
The best tracks though are 'In The Beginning' and 'If I Could Live Forever'.

This being their third album, it shows a lot of promise for the rest of their career. Some good choices for playing live, containing much of Magnum's trademark powerful sound. Songs such as 'So Cold the Night' and 'The Battle' sounding great live, and other popular favorites like 'If I Could Live Forever' and 'Changes' complementing the album.
The age shows through in some of the recording though, sometimes even the feedback is heard, yet any die-hard fan would accept this as being part of the 'classic sound'. Overall, the quality of the recording does not let it down too much. The only weakness I can see in it is the lack of hits like 'Kingdom of Madness' and 'Great Adventure'. Having been a die-hard Magnum fan for a few years now, this album is a welcome addition to anyones collection, and has a nice selection of songs not just limited to all-time favorites. I would not recommend this for those who are new to Magnum though.

After the release of Storytellers Night and Vigilante, Magnum seemed to forget what they were good at, grew 'big' hair and pomped it up.

Marauder, the refreshed version that this is, is worth a serious listen to remind yourself of how good their early stuff sounded. OK, the track sequence is still hacked up, and simply parking the four songs from the EP on the end sort of spoilts this a little more, but the rawness and power leaps up at you.

Tony Clarkin's one real problem seems to be the naff song titles he produces. The quality of playing on this set is excellent and once you have got passed the titles, reminds me of their far better known fellow travellers, who were filling stadiums at the time, not just the Marquee club.

My one real gripe about this is the bodge-welding of the Invasion album onto this. What was the point - several of the tracks are virtual duplicates of the ones recorded a couple of years previous, and yet very little of Chase the Dragon....

Had this on vinyl originally and have now bought the Cd because the LP was damaged.
The music is great, much better than the studio offering.
However, the only thing that lets the album down is the gaps in the editing.
While the band didn't have a lot of say in the comnpletion of the record, the record company should have made more effort to make it a continuous piece of work.
That said, I'm going to play it death still!
