Some like it hot...., 24 April 2007
I've just ordered this album. I've been waiting for it on CD for ages. In November 1979 I was at Liverpool Empire theatre for a Whitesnake gig, and had to queue for half an hour for a t-shirt. Whilst I was waiting in the queue I experienced this amazing noise - a total 'wall of sound' from the support band - Marseille. It was truly awesome. I was in row A that night and legged it down to the front for the end of their set. That experience has remained with me into my 40's !!!
Make no mistake, this band live were as loud and energetic as the lot of them. I still have a vinyl album in my record collection which is warped and scratched after it fell out of the record sleeve, so I'm very excited as I wait for the CD to arrive.
Marseille didn't blow Whitesnake off the stage that night, but they came close. Great memories and such a shame they never had major success as a rock band. Buy the album and you won't be dissapointed...they're gonna 'rock ya tonight'...
